What I've done
I wanted to be able to use meteor's DDP protocol and Minimongo without the process of change my current project infrastructure and architecture.
In order to make it possible I looked at Meteor's code and try figure out how to set the DDP connection url outside of a Meteor project.
I found that
__meteor_runtime_config__.DDP_DEFAULT_CONNECTION_URL runtime variable need to be set and then it left me with the need to extract meteor code to external use. It was really simple :)
meteor build --directory and got the minified version
In addition, I wanted to use Meteor Accounts packages so I extracted it too accounts-password-client-side
