Meteor is a unique full-stack framework designed to address some of the most persistent concerns faced when building web applications. It provides the same JavaScript APIs on both the client and server, resulting in no context switching, so the development environment is consistent and seamless. The reactive template model automatically pushes updates when data changes for fluid user experience. Users enjoy instant updates while Meteor handles the behind-the-scenes work of synchronizing data and building new pages. Finally, Meteor provides many unique productivity features, like push-button bundling and deployment, an intuitive interactivity protocol, and Smart Packages that make it a snap to manage application features.

Meteor in Action tackles full-stack web development using the Meteor platform. Starting with an overview of a Meteor application, it reveals the unique nature of Meteor's end-to-end application model. Then it dives into the Blaze templating engine, Meteor's reactive datasources model, simple and advanced routing techniques, and managing users, permissions, and roles. It guides readers through typical real world scenarios like managing file uploads, SEO, and localizing applications as they create their own packages to reuse functionality across projects. Lastly, it covers deploying Meteor on a server and scaling efficiently.
