Meteordev

A simple shell script to install, update and use the bleeding edge (devel) Meteor version

Installation

git clone git@github.com:alethes/meteordev
/bin/bash ./meteordev/meteordev

Usage

The script will download and install the latest Meteor devel version in ~/.meteordev. It will also ask your permission to install itself in /usr/local/bin/meteordev so it can (presumably) be found in the system's path. If you disagree now, you can always do it later by running ./meteordev install from the script's directory.

After the script is successfully done running for the first time, it functions as a drop-in replacement for the meteor command. It means you can create, run and manage your apps using the bleeding edge Meteor version:

meteor create test-app #or 'meteordev create test-app'
cd test-app
meteordev

You can also, at any time, pull the latest commits from the Meteor repository with meteordev update.

Why?

  • It's an easy way to try out and test the upcoming Meteor features and potentially help the Meteor Development Group detect bugs early.
  • If you just can't wait for some almost-ready amendments/improvements, then that's the way to go.
