The future of Mobile Apps Development with MeteorJS

2 June 2016

A billion smartphones were sold in 2015, and it is expected to have over 10 billion mobile internet devices in use by the end of 2016. Given the current state of the industry, the future of mobile app development will focus on shortening the life cycling of production. This goes hand in hand with the rise of third-party tools that are meant to reduce the tedious work performed by mobile developers today.

In this time of rapid app development, we need better ways to create interactive mobile applications quickly, and that is where the Meteor framework comes to rescue. It is incredible how MeteorJS is now helping developers build mobile apps faster while delivering fully native experiences.

Meteor is for everyone

MeteorJS is at the crossroads of user experience and ease of development – an app built with a technology that many developers already know (JavaScript). This is a huge bonus for businesses that want to use new ways to build native, cross-platform apps faster than ever.

Meteor is a general purpose web framework built for everyone, whether you are an absolute beginner, a front-end developer or you have a lot of experience with Node and JavaScript.

The approach that Meteor uses is revolutionary in sense, and it is designed so that it would be possible for many more people in the world to be able to write great software.

Key features of Meteor

  • Real-time app from scratch. Meteor gives the opportunity to create a model in the database, and instantly changes are shown for all connected clients. Meteor includes a real-time wire protocol called DDP (Distributed Data Protocol).
  • Flexible application structure. Meteor is very flexible in how you divide your apps and it doesn’t enforce you any style of structuring your files and folders.  It’s also useful for simplifying your development structure so that it’s easy to maintain, which can save on upkeep costs and maintenance later.
  • Built-in-front-end solutions. An important feature of Meteor is that it has a built-in-front-end solution, which means that you won’t need to use external programs like Angular, Ember or something else.
  • Isomorphic code. It uses an isomorphic code that can be shared between the client and server; it has its unique packaging system called Atmosphere which also supports isomorphic code, and it’s easy to deploy on mobile devices.

In addition to what is outlined already, some of the key features are that it’s incredibly easy to install and deploy. The best part about this tool is that everything works seamless, out of the box, right from the database access to server side business logic to the client side rendering. If we’re able to deliver all of these in a couple of weeks, imagine what you will be able to do in a year with MeteorJS!

The future is brighter with MeteorJS

Meteor is the undisputed king of instant mobile development, and it will claim its place in the future too. This is the right opportunity to dive into this Meteor movement. Don’t miss the chance to revolutionize the industry and to earn a great place on your particular market. ITSG can help you get started with Meteor. Learn more about our expertise here.
