Filing Bug Reports

If you've found a bug in Meteor, file a bug report in our issue tracker. However, a Meteor app has many moving parts, and it's often difficult to reproduce a bug based on just a few lines of code. If you want somebody to be able to fix a bug (or verify a fix that you've contributed), the best way is:

  • Create a new Meteor app that displays the bug with as little code as possible. Try to delete any code that is unrelated to the precise bug you're reporting.
  • Create a new GitHub repository with a name like meteor-reactivity-bug (or if you're adding a new reproduction recipe to an existing issue, meteor-issue-321) and push your code to it. (Make sure to include the .meteor/packages file!)
  • Reproduce the bug from scratch, starting with a git clone command. Copy and paste the entire command-line input and output, starting with the git clone command, into the issue description of a new GitHub issue. Also describe any web browser interaction you need to do.
  • Specify what version of Meteor ($ meteor --version) and what web browser you used.

By making it as easy as possible for others to reproduce your bug, you make it easier for your bug to be fixed. Issues opened without a reproduction recipe are likely to be immediately closed with a pointer to this wiki section and a request for more information.
