First time on web development


Hello all,

this is my first time on web development. I’ve been a CS student for 8 years now and worked with iOS/android development for a year only. Never with web. I’d like to build a simple e-commerce website for my father as he has a food delivery business. Is Reaction what I’m looking for? Everything seems really confusing for me. I couldn’t even set up the e-mail on my local reaction server.

Should I learn Meteor before jumping into Reaction? Is there a good overview on how the framework is organized?

Thank you,



The Meteor documentation is excellent and having some Meteor knowledge under your belt will make working with Reaction make a lot more sense. Check out the Meteor Guide. Also feel free to hit us up in the Gitter channel if you have specific questions.
