1. Your applications are real-time by default.
Lately, companies like Twitter and Facebook have been moving toward a real-time web. It’s inevitable that, sooner than you probably expect, users will expect web applications to work near-instantaneously. I imagine there’s already users who wince whenever a separate page load is required for simple tasks like changing settings and logging out.
The problem is, creating real-time web applications is tricky. Or at least, it was. Meteor has real-time built into its core though. When the database is updated, the data in your templates is updated. When a user clicks a button or submits a form, the action occurs immediately. In the vast majority of cases, this doesn’t even require any extra effort. You build a web application as you normally would and, out of the box, it just happens to be real-time.
2. You can develop with just one language. No need for multi skilled developers.
3. It’s ahead of the tech curve.
Like I said earlier, the web is becoming a real-time environment, but the shift won’t happen purely based on the actions of the big companies with the big budgets. The shift will happen as tools become available that allow small teams and individual developers to make real-time applications quickly and easily. Meteor is amongst the first wave of this tools and its “all in one” approach is surely going to make it a big player in the coming years.
