Meteor, my development framework of choice these days, is awesome. Just like any framework, the initial learning curve will slow you down — but unlike other frameworks I’ve used, once you grasp Meteor, you get things done fast. The ratio of idea to lines-of-code is just really high.
On the other hand, no one likes wasting time wrestling with magic file-loading rules. If you’ve ever found yourself needing to nest a
lib/ folder inside a
lib/ folder, you are told you are doing it wrong. But that’s no comfort when you just want to write code.
Thankfully, there’s a better way.
