AngularJS, Meteor, Backbone, Express or plain NodeJs? When to use each one? – Quora

Meteor is a new (but very well-funded and production-ready), player on the scene and is one of the few frameworks that takes full-stack approach. Your app runs BOTH on the server and the client (in node on the server, and in your your browser’s JavaScript engine on the client) and works very holistically together. It also comes bundled with MongoDB (although you can replace this with a bit of tinkering). Meteor is extremely interesting and I think they do a lot of things very right – it’s a delight to work with. EVERYONE coding JavaScript should learn it, because it’s inspiring as hell. But it’s only an option if you’re in the position of replacing your entire stack, client and server (or working from scratch of course). If you already have, say, a web API that you work against, of if you have an existing JavaScript frontend app that you just want to add some structure to, it won’t fit your needs.
