It had been a while since Meteor came up in my news feeds.
"Meteor has accomplished a lot since its original launch back in 2012. It was one of the first isomorphic app frameworks (meaning it spans across both server and client), and remains pretty much the only viable one to this day.
But at the same time, Meteor has yet to establish itself as a mainstream development technology on the same level as Rails or even vanilla Node.js, despite the Meteor Development Group (MDG)’s best efforts.
Sure, these things take time. Still, almost four years after Meteor first launched, I have to admit I thought the framework would be more widespread by now. So what happened?"
