The web is dead – applications now rule our online experiences. But how are you going to build them? Well, if you’ve been paying attention, you might already have tried your hand with MeteorJS, the JavaScript framework that helps you build complete full-stack web applications that are responsive and fast with ease. Mastering MeteorJS Application Development shows you how to do even more with MeteorJS – if you’re ready to try a comprehensive course through one of the most exciting frameworks in web development today, this is the book you need.

I hope you have enjoyed this chapter. There is a lot of scope to improve the application in terms of features. Go play around and implement additional features and get your hands dirty. I will leave it to your imagination. This chapter has come to an end. Let's summarize what we have learned so far. MeteorJS is built by integrating various packages. MeteorJS employs various components on the server, client, and channel to build the applications. MeteorJS provides extensive and flexible APIs to create customized logins. We can define named routes, and thereby associate templates and layouts with the route. We have also learned how to use multiple layouts in the application. We also learned to code database operations, query for search operations, sever side method calls, and custom reactive variables to make the application more lively and reactive.

What we have learned so far is good. However, there is a lot we can improve in this whole process. In the next chapter, we'll learn how to develop MeteorJS application like a pro.
