I’ve been living the Node SPA model for a few years. I’m convinced of it.

I wish I hadn’t done MeteorJS, though. When I went there about 18 months ago it wasn’t yet baked enough and the result was crippling scalability problems which no dev could truly grasp.

Ouch. I hope they were clean apps, but being PHP I doubt it. Although probably not as convoluted as a lot of Java web apps with  
their typical 42 layers. I'm going down the NodeJS route with the prerendered one-page-app model. The pre-render / post-render  
optimal page / app model seems to require it. It is very difficult to spend limited time yet be comfortable choosing particular  
front end / back end libraries, especially when the landscape changes every week.

Recently, I narrowly escaped helping to fix a friend's startup's mess of an app on top of PHP/WordPress. (I helped find people more  
current on that now-legacy tech.) Leaving me bandwidth to invent a couple things. Now if I could only get my OpenSCAD models to  
render to drawings in FreeCAD nicely (with outlines, not polys)... Has anyone become expert at either of those? Alternatives?
