How Meteor JS Makes Website Creation Flexibly Easier Now

Meteor JS is the cohesive development framework that makes web development pleasant and approachable. It comes with a full-stack framework that can deliver single page application, web and mobile based applications completely in JavaScript. What makes Meteor the new talk in web development is that it shows the simplified process for the creation of reactive apps.

The framework is basically built on a collection of ideas, taken from different libraries and frameworks for the easier development of proactive apps. However, the Meteor JS comes with flexible tools and features that are capable of delivering full-blown production apps.

So here is how things work when developers use the Meteor JS for their upcoming project

  1. It helps to create real time applications by default
  2. Simplifies work by allowing the use of only JavaScript for building and managing of front-end, back-end and other database
  3. Has an extremely active and supportive community
  4. Saves a lot of time with built-in smart packages
  5. It’s user friendly for beginners

One of the first things that you would notice in a site that has used the Meteor JS framework is that, it loads faster. It does not follow any loading process when you enter the website. The web page appears on the screen after the HTML loading is complete. Well here is what happens actually – every page has a corresponding template, which generates the html out. Due to this reason, no data needs to be extracted from the server, for the data is already present there. This explains how technically even a massive load can be easily handled faster.

So how can one implement this in one’s website?

Here are some steps that you would like to follow –

  • Use the ‘meteor add showdown’ to install the ‘showdown’ package

  • Follow up this process with basic routing, for which you would have to install the ‘iron-router’

How to use a template for creating a blog post?

Study the following steps to get started

You need to give a particular template name here, which will help generate an HTML. Suppose your template name is my_template_name, then the HTML that will be generated would be – Template.

my_template_name( );

Creating a Blog Post

The following steps will show you how to use a template for creating a blog post –

<template name= “my_template_name”>

{ { #markdown } }

/** 

My Template Name
Website templates are pre-designed webpage 
or a set of HTML webpages where anyone 
can plug-in images and texts.

*/

{ { #markdown } }

</template>

Adding a Simple Route

Router.map (function( ) {
    
this. route( 'blog', {

path:  ' /blog/ :slug' ,

template: 'blog' 

    });

});

When creating a blog template

<template name = “blog”>

   <div id= 'blog' >

   { { { content } } }

   </ div>

</ template>

Steps to follow when rendering a blog post into a content using the Meteor JS –

if ( Meteor .isClient )  {

   Template. blog .content = function ( )  {

   var slug = Router . current ( ) . params. Slug;

   var templateFunc = Template [ slug ] ;

if ( typeof templateFunc  == 'function'  )  {

   return  templateFunc ( ) ;

}  else  

   {

   return “404” ;

   }

 };

}

Using the environment variable ‘ export DDP_DEFAULT_CONNECTION_URL=http: //non-existing-url.com’ in your Meteor app development, will prevent the web server from getting any DDP requests.

The above steps shown to you are some of the most basic steps to give you an understanding about the flexibility of using the Meteor JS framework. However, delivering the finest solution and output depends a lot on one’s understanding and knowledge of where to make use of the right tactic.
