A simple app to gather ideas


This is a fork of the most excellent Made with Meteor sample app repurposed to gather ideas instead of app names and urls.

Notable additions

  1. Added Mad-Lib style input form
  2. Added Mongo Admin feature
  3. Updated styling
  4. Added SEO-friendly URLs
  5. Added Google Analytics (which is harder to do in Meteor than it should be)
  6. Upon submission, idea is posted to a project (love me some

Notable todos

  1. Update code naming conventions to map to new use (e.g. ideas instead of apps/names, use who/what/why)
  2. I removed the audit-arguments-check package due to compatibility error. Would be nice (and secure) to add back.
  3. Occasionally there is a delay on prod (as hosted by meteor). Currently messing around with using spin.js to indicate Meteor is thinking, but this is still a work in progress.
  4. The Houston package is awesome! It works great but current implementation is throwing some errors which seem to be innocuous, but nonetheless need to be figured out.

Getting started

See instructions here if this is your first Meteor app.


  1. Add your credentials to settings.json
  2. If you deploy to a public site, be sure to navigate to and enter in a set of admin credentials. You app will be exposed until you do so.
  3. Update relevant Google Analytics fields per your setup
