About the Book

You might call Meteor a reactive, isomorphic, full-stack web development framework. Or, like most developers who have tried it, you might just call it awesome. Meteor is a JavaScript-based framework for both client and server web and mobile applications. Meteor applications react to changes in data instantly, so you get impossibly responsive user experiences, and the consistent build process, unified front- and back-end package system, and one-command deploys save you time at every step from design to release.
