Agile development with Meteor

How to fast track your SPRINTS with METEOR

Let’s evaluate the topmost goals and the toughest challenges of a startup. Building the right Product and stitching the story around it, building up the right team, identifying a suitable tech stack, setting yourself time goals and identifying the amount of war chest for the journey ahead.

According to statistics, 90% of businesses fail within 12-18 months. The main reason for not being able to succeed is that startups create products that have no chance on the market.

Entrepreneurs should always keep an eye on what works for their customers and thus lay out a clear path for generating revenue. Therefore, picking the right tech stack is among the most challenging and essential tasks for new startups as it allows them to test the business idea as fast as possible.

So if the market demands products to be designed with the speed of the light, then why not build them with Meteor? Meteor has emerged as a game-changer for rapid software development which makes the preferred choice for startups. It is designed to make programming easier so that the entrepreneur focuses on the business part of the startup.

So what exactly is Meteor?

Meteor is a full stack JavaScript (JS) framework, made up of a collection of libraries and packages, bound together. But some people call Meteor magic and in a way, it is.

Since it’s built on concepts from other frameworks and libraries, Meteor makes it easy to prototype applications. Essentially, it makes web development easier. It’s flexible and requires less code, which means fewer bugs and typically a higher quality and more stable end result.

With Meteor, VAYUZ  adds another trick to the hat complementing its Center of Excellence model and adding immense flexibility and strength to the AGILE development framework. We now offer our customers METEOR, with the benefits of Rapid Development and among the very few in India to do so.


So what are the top reasons that make this framework a favorite with budding tech-based businesses? Let’s take a look at the best reasons to build with Meteor.

#1 It’s fast to build with

When using Meteor, launching an MVP in 3-4 weeks can be a reality. With JavaScript on the front-end and back-end, plus smart packages, Meteor allows you to develop faster. This makes it a go-to for startups and others trying to get a product out the door quickly.

#2 Develop with just one language

Aside from rapid development, JavaScript on the server and client has other benefits—like less context switching. Moreover, JavaScript is one of the most popular languages in the programming world.

#3 Easy to learn

Anyone who gives Meteor a try knows how simple it is to get up and going. Unlike other popular full-stack frameworks, you don’t have to rely on multiple languages. A semi-experienced JS developer would be able to pick up and get the project running quickly.

#4 Real-time applications at the core

Meteor is the perfect solution for those looking to build real-time applications. All of the application’s layers from the database to template update automatically. This means there is no need to refresh the page to see updates and any changes to documents save instantly.

#5 Smart & Easy to integrate packages

Building out a login system for your application can be a pain. But not with Meteor. Meteor packages make it simple to add features such as:

  • User accounts
  • Javascript libraries like React
  • Extras like Bootstrap or Stylus .. and more

There is an entire website dedicated to Meteor package management. So adding of smart packages is as easy as a few keystrokes on the terminal.

#6 Cross-Platform development

Meteor comes out of the box with Cordova and makes it simple to turn your web app into a smartphone app. Cordova is a platform to build native smartphone applications using HTML, CSS and JavaScript. It has a set of APIs that allow you to access native device functions, like the camera, with JavaScript.

#7 Gives more power to AGILE framework

Meteor blends perfectly into the Agile development framework of your organization. It enables SPRINT teams with a speedy and focused development of the deliverables.

#8 Interoperability

After implementing a simple DDP protocol, you’ll be able to connect anything to Meteor—native mobile applications, legacy databases, and even microprocessors.

#9 Active community

Despite the young age, there is already a passionate community of web developers using Meteor called “Meteorites”. More than that, tons of blogs, resources, and even online learning platforms have emerged to discuss and teach the platform. It is also the 10th most starred repository on Github, equaling Ruby on Rails.

#10 Meteor is the future

The web is becoming an increasingly real-time environment. With the growth of online applications like real-time collaboration tools, instant customer support, multiplayer web games, and more, the need for real-time friendly applications is increasing. And Meteor offers just that.

So, if you are still struggling with the question of what tech stack is good for building your startup the answer is – MeteorJS.
