The release of Meteor 2.0 has brought a range of exciting updates for the community. One of the most anticipated features is the return of Meteor Free deploy, powered by Meteor Cloud and MongoDB. This is a significant addition that will allow developers to showcase their work more easily.
Another exciting addition is the introduction of Hot Module Replacement (HMR), which provides a faster feedback loop during development. React is the first framework to take advantage of HMR support in Meteor, using React Refresh to maintain the UI state while making code changes. Blaze will also soon be able to use HMR.
Imagine being able to update your UI components more than 50 times in a regular day without having to wait for your app to refresh. With HMR support, your app will refresh immediately, and React Refresh will also keep the state of your UI intact. This means that you can keep your app in the desired state while making changes to your code.
Hot Module Replacement is not only available for React. A new package will soon bring support for Blaze as well. This is important for companies that are making money with Meteor in production, as they can continue to use the framework without any issues. Overall, Meteor 2.0 is an exciting release that brings a lot of new features and improvements to the table.
