JHipster vs Meteor: What are the differences?

Developers describe JHipster as "An Open Source application generator". It is a free and open-source application generator used to quickly develop modern web applications and Microservices using Spring Boot + Angular / React / Vue. On the other hand, Meteor is detailed as "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.

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

JHipster and Meteor are both open source tools. It seems that Meteor with 41.2K GitHub stars and 5.03K forks on GitHub has more adoption than JHipster with 14.1K GitHub stars and 2.88K GitHub forks.

Accenture, Rocket.Chat, and FashionUnited are some of the popular companies that use Meteor, whereas JHipster is used by Logo Yazilim, apside, and CSB. Meteor has a broader approval, being mentioned in 195 company stacks & 157 developers stacks; compared to JHipster, which is listed in 5 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.

Next.js is probably the most enjoyable React framework our team could have picked. The development is an extremely smooth process, the file structure is beautiful and organized, and the speed is no joke. Our work with Next.js comes out much faster than if it was built on pure React or frameworks alike. We were previously developing all of our projects in Meteor before making the switch. We left Meteor due to the slow compiler and website speed. We deploy all of our Next.js projects on Vercel.

This basically came down to two things: performance on compute-heavy tasks and a need for good tooling. We used to have a Meteor based Node.js application which worked great for RAD and getting a working prototype in a short time, but we felt pains trying to scale it, especially when doing anything involving crunching data, which Node sucks at. We also had bad experience with tooling support for doing large scale refactorings in Javascript compared to the best-in-class tools available for Java (IntelliJ). Given the heavy domain and very involved logic we wanted good tooling support to be able to do great refactorings that are just not possible in Javascript. Java is an old warhorse, but it performs fantastically and we have not regretted going down this route, avoiding "enterprise" smells and going as lightweight as we can, using Jdbi instead of Persistence API, a homegrown Actor Model library for massive concurrency, etc ...

      Spring Boot
      Spring Boot makes it easy to create stand-alone, production-grade Spring based Applications that you can "just run". We take an opinionated view of the Spring platform and third-party libraries so you can get started with minimum fuss. Most Spring Boot applications need very little Spring configuration.
      Grails
      Grails is a framework used to build web applications with the Groovy programming language. The core framework is very extensible and there are numerous plugins available that provide easy integration of add-on features.
      Django
      Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design.
      Yeoman
      Yeoman is a robust and opinionated set of tools, libraries, and a workflow that can help developers quickly build beautiful, compelling web apps. It is comprised of yo - a scaffolding tool using our generator system, grunt - a task runner for your build process and bower for dependency management.
      CUBA Platform
      It is a high-level open-source Java web framework for the rapid development of enterprise applications. The platform abstracts developers from underlying technologies so they can focus on the business tasks, whilst retaining full flexibility by providing unrestricted access to low-level code. Applications are developed in Java, with the user interface declared in XML. A rich set of features covers most typical project requirements and development tools reduce boilerplate code and facilitate truly rapid development.
