Hoodie vs Meteor: What are the differences?

What is Hoodie? A fast offline-first architecture for webapps. Super-simple user management & storage. Great for mobile. We want to enable you to build complete web apps in days, without having to worry about backends, databases or servers, all with an open source library that's as simple to use as jQuery.

What is Meteor? An ultra-simple, database-everywhere, data-on-the-wire, pure-Javascript web framework. A Meteor application is a mix of JavaScript that runs inside a client web browser, JavaScript that runs on the Meteor server inside a Node.js container, and all the supporting HTML fragments, CSS rules, and static assets.

Hoodie and Meteor can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

Some of the features offered by Hoodie are:

  • Offline by default: Hoodie stores data locally first and syncs them in the background when possible. Great for mobile applications
  • One-line signup/signin/signout/resend password and other account management functions
  • Document-based storage with CouchDB: no building database schemas

On the other hand, Meteor provides the following key features:

  • Pure JavaScript
  • Live page updates
  • Clean, powerful data synchronization

"JSON" is the primary reason why developers consider Hoodie over the competitors, whereas "Real-time" was stated as the key factor in picking Meteor.

Hoodie and Meteor are both open source tools. Meteor with 41.2K GitHub stars and 5.03K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Hoodie with 3.51K GitHub stars and 314 GitHub forks.

      Review ofMeteorMeteor

      I discovered Meteor thanks to my daughter who used it for a project at MIT. I was amazed at how much she had built in such a short time. I had also been trying to figure out how to build a browser-based crypto app so I jumped into Meteor and had an MVP for cloak.ly in a few short months starting from nothing. Learning Meteor really alters what you perceive as easy and difficult in full-stack development. It has an amazing ability to simplify your thinking and your code. Community support in terms of packages is outstanding as well which saves tremendous time. The quality of the software is outstanding with very few regressions cropping up during their frequent releases.

      Being at the bleeding edge of the js community does have its downsides however. While early Meteor (with Blaze/handlebars templates) was exceedingly simple, Meteor have had to introduce support for both angular and react. In combination with the move to ECMAscript this has resulted in a lot of work for developers to just keep up with the evolution of the platform. Someone who was an expert 6 months ago might quickly find themselves being a newb again. If you're someone who doesn't like change you may want to stick to jQuery.

      Living in the bay area I have the luxury of being able to attend Meteor events frequently. Having met many members of the MDG team, I have tremendous confidence in the future of the platform. This is a very solid group with a rare combination of broad vision and excellent execution.

      Review ofMeteorMeteor

      Meteor is my favorite framework. It makes everything fun. Syncing data across devices is really easy and you don't have to mess around with sockets at all. You can insert data into the database on the client. There's tons of security options. There's over 3000 packages on the packaging system. Instant iOS and Android apps. Amazing, reactive routing. Free hosting. Easy deployment with Meteor Up. What's not to like?

      Review ofMeteorMeteor

      Meteor is so powerful and flexible. I love it. In the near future, it will be the top-used framework.

      Review ofMeteorMeteor

      We have gone "all in" on Meteor and I recommend you do to.

      Without Meteor cloak.ly could not have been built as quickly by such a small team. Meteor was instrumental to getting an MVP up quickly and dealing with the complexities of browser-based encryption.

      Built on Node.js, Meteor's real time reactivity and its wide package ecosystem allows us to quickly prototype and build apps in a lean way

      We've been doing all new development in Meteor for the past couple years. We've had Meteor apps in production since version 0.6
