Meteor

TravisCI Status CircleCI Status

Meteor is an ultra-simple environment for building modern web applications.

With Meteor you write apps:

  • in pure JavaScript
  • that send data over the wire, rather than HTML
  • using your choice of popular open-source libraries

Try the getting started tutorial.

Next, read the guide or the reference documentation at http://docs.meteor.com/.

Quick Start

Install Meteor:

curl https://install.meteor.com | /bin/sh

Create a project:

meteor create try-meteor

Run it:

cd try-meteor
meteor

Slow Start (for developers)

If you want to run on the bleeding edge, or help develop Meteor, you can run Meteor directly from a git checkout.

git clone git://github.com/meteor/meteor.git
cd meteor

If you're the sort of person who likes to build everything from scratch, you can build all the Meteor dependencies (node.js, npm, mongodb, etc) with the provided script. This requires git, a C and C++ compiler, autotools, and scons. If you do not run this script, Meteor will automatically download pre-compiled binaries when you first run it.

# OPTIONAL
./scripts/generate-dev-bundle.sh

Now you can run meteor directly from the checkout (if you did not build the dependency bundle above, this will take a few moments to download a pre-build version).

./meteor --help

From your checkout, you can read the docs locally. The /docs directory is a meteor application, so simply change into the /docs directory and launch the app:

cd docs/
../meteor

You'll then be able to read the docs locally in your browser at http://localhost:3000/.

Note that if you run Meteor from a git checkout, you cannot pin apps to specific Meteor releases or run using different Meteor releases using --release.

Uninstalling Meteor

Aside from a short launcher shell script, Meteor installs itself inside your home directory. To uninstall Meteor, run:

rm -rf ~/.meteor/
sudo rm /usr/local/bin/meteor
