Use best practice design patterns including MVC, templates, and data synchronization.
Create simple, effective user authentication including Facebook and Twitter integration.
Learn the time-saving techniques of Meteor to code powerful, lightning-fast web apps in minutes
The book is based on version 0.5.0; not the very latest one (we’re at 0.6.1 at the moment of writing) but no compatibility problems so far (and being before version 1.0 it’s pretty normal to see the version number changing quite often and quickly).
The book is not very long (around 131 pages) but it’s the perfect format for an introductory guide whose purpose is getting you up to speed in not time. It’s impossible not being impressed with the easyness of creating and running an application with a single codebase, front-to-back and you’ll be hooked up in no time since the book throws you into the code since the first chapter (and that’s obviously very good!)
In the book you’ll find everything you need: from practical instructions on how to setup and run the framework, to quick birds eye views on MVC and MV*, how to use templates, deal with a NoSQL Database (Mongo), how to structure your application and publish it on the Meteor.com hosting platform.
“Getting Started with Meteor” is an easy to follow, step-by-step approach to learning how to build modern web applications with Meteor. Through the development of a complete and ready-to-use application, you will experience exactly how easy and fast it can be to develop robust, flexible web applications, so you can build your own “killer” app in no time.
“Getting Started with Meteor” will walk you step-by-step through all the major advantages that Meteor has to offer. You’ll be up and running in less than two minutes, and will develop an actual application you can use. As you move quickly through the exercises, you’ll be able to experience first-hand how easy it is to develop in Meteor, and will gain invaluable best practices you can apply immediately to your coding projects.
You will learn about reactive programming and how Meteor takes advantage of the latest web technologies. You will gain a solid understanding of what the best design patterns are for developing web apps, and when to use them. You will learn how Meteor uses HTML templates and NoSQL (document-based) databases together to make coding applications simple and fun. Finally, you’ll gain best practices for security and performance, making your web applications fast, secure, and easy to use. If you want to build a web application but hate how difficult it seems to be, this book will show you the easy way to build and deploy modern web apps
This book will teach you everything you need to know to get up and running with Meteor, and start you on your way to becoming an expert web applications developer
