[javascript] Hide Signs that Meteor.js was Used

In order to design a blind test, how can a Meteor.js app hide signs that Meteor.js was used to build the site? PHP have a X-Powered-By header that can be removed, what hints do Meteor have?

This question is related to javascript node.js meteor

The answer is


The amount of hacks you would need to go through to completely hide the fact your site is built by Meteor.js is absolutely ridiculous. You would have to strip essentially all core functionality and just serve straight up html, completely defeating the purpose of using the framework anyway.

That being said, I suggest looking at buildwith.com

You enter a url, and it reveals a ton of information about a site. If you only need to "fool" engines like this, there may be simple solutions.


A Meteor app does not, by default, add any X-Powered-By headers to HTTP responses, as you might find in various PHP apps. The headers look like:

$ curl -I https://atmosphere.meteor.com  HTTP/1.1 200 OK content-type: text/html; charset=utf-8 date: Tue, 31 Dec 2013 23:12:25 GMT connection: keep-alive 

However, this doesn't mask that Meteor was used. Viewing the source of a Meteor app will look very distinctive.

<script type="text/javascript"> __meteor_runtime_config__ = {"meteorRelease":"0.6.3.1","ROOT_URL":"http://atmosphere.meteor.com","serverId":"62a4cf6a-3b28-f7b1-418f-3ddf038f84af","DDP_DEFAULT_CONNECTION_URL":"ddp+sockjs://ddp--****-atmosphere.meteor.com/sockjs"}; </script> 

If you're trying to avoid people being able to tell you are using Meteor even by viewing source, I don't think that's possible.
