compatible with meteor? #270

When trying to use formidable 1.0.14 with meteor I get the following error

=> Errors prevented startup:

While building the application:
node_modules/formidable/test/tools/base64.html:1: bad formatting in HTML template

=> Your application has errors. Waiting for file change.

I wondering, if the two components are supposed to be working together, or if I'm completely on a wrong track here. Since fileupload is not built into meteor yet, formidable would come in quite handy.


the error results from adding the formidable code directly into directories, that get interpreted by meteor (looking for templates etc).
If I recall it ok, I was able to use:

meteor add npm
echo '{ "formidable": "1.0.14" }' > packages.json

meteor should take care of installing formidable correctly this way and you do:

var formidable = Meteor.require('formidable');
