Meteor is great at sharing code between different builds for different platforms. You can use the same source for your browser builds, server builds, your builds for iOS, Android, ... But how to organize your project to orchestrate your builds for different use cases? This post elaborates on the reasons why you need these different builds and how you could accomplish this with Meteor easily.
Use cases: Why would you build different apps?
1. Different apps for different roles
Say you have an app with completely different end user experiences depending on their role. It is common practice to have the user logged in, check her authorization (role) and then setup different routes or load different templates to serve that type of user’s needs. While doing so, all types of users load the same build and the app decides what portions of the build to use and what not to use.
