Meteor is a simple and complete web framework with the goal of giving developers of any skillset the ability to build robust web applications in a fraction of the time.

It features a handy CLI tool that you can use to scaffold new projects very quickly.

Meteor provides some core projects/libraries, such as blaze, DDP, livequery, and so on, with a unified build system. This simplifies the overall development process and yields an integrated developer experience.

Meteor aims to build real-time applications by providing its two core features, the distributed data protocol on the server side and transparent reactive rendering on the client side. For more details, visit
