ExpressJS vs MeteorJS

Express = MVC Framework built in Javascript and is powered by Node.

Meteor = Full Stack that has the front-end and back-end components to build a real-time application.

To create the same implementation of Meteor using Express, you need to look at the MEAN stack, which includes MongoDB, Express, AngularJS, and Node. You can create the same thing in Meteor that you can with the MEAN stack, you are just going to be doing a lot more learning especially with AngularJS. Express and Angular are taken care of in Meteor using Meteor’s template system and Blaze.

I would stick with Meteor. It still has a few drawbacks, but there are workarounds. It’s amazing what you can throw together in little time.
