Famous and Meteor are not your everyday frameworks (I agree with @timfam). To use Meteor in it's purest form, I believe one MUST use famous-views to use Famous. Of course you can bypass Blaze entirely but then that would be hacky! If you am building something serious and extensive, then you want to do it RIGHT.
- The V (view) has to be separate from everything else. I love that FV allows me to do that.
- I know how frustrating it is to work with spaghetti code (I come from PHP).
- As it is I am learning Meteor and Famous
- FV is not that complicated once you start using it.
By the way, a big thank you to you @gadicc for fview-lab2 examples (in addition to FV)! It's a huge help for someone like me. I hope you keep adding new examples just like you currently are doing. It makes learning FV a walk in the park
