Been playing around with MeteorJS quite a lot lately. What is exciting and fun about it is the fact that you can access the db (mongodb) from the client just as you can with your server code. Until you setup publish and subscribe channels it’s unsecured, but once you do it is secured against malicious attack. If anyone has done anything with it let me know so we can talk how we might do something similar for web apps on The Safe Network. @Viv I’d love it if you could spend 20mins and look at a couple demos so we could discuss.
The web was originally designed to work in the same way that mainframes worked in the 70s. The application server rendered a screen and sent it over the network to a dumb terminal. Whenever the user did anything, that server rerendered a whole new screen. This model served the Web well for over a decade. It gave rise to LAMP, Rails, Django, PHP.
