Jesse Rosenberger, thanks for reading. There is no doubt that Meteor is a multifunctional and helpful tool. Most JS frameworks come with multiple neccessary/excessive features that they are often praised/blamed for.
Meteor was featured as one of the best JS frameworks, thanks to its contributing to better development process with extensive feature set. Guess that using it as a bundling tool ONLY is like drawing a rainbow with solely yellow paint, having a rich color palette at hand.
Hope I could explain my point. Thanks for your time.
