This is an amusing demo that shows some of the stuff Meteor lets you get away with, with minimal effort. It's not meant to be an exhaustive overview of everything Meteor offers, but it's a pretty good starting point. It's running live at draw-with-me.meteor.com
If you have any questions, ASK!
- WTH is Meteor?
- Client vs Server
- Meteor.call & Meteor.methods
- Project Structure
- Meteorite & Atmosphere
- Some Random JS and d3.
You're going to want to have Chrome. Firefox has performance issues with rendering svg's through d3 and the technique we're using. It should work with IE9+. Safari, Opera, Konquerer? No idea.
Download and install npm. It's also on brew and aptitude (Ubuntu).
Use npm to install meteorite:
sudo npm install -g meteorite
If you're on Windows, try this.
You should be able to run
mrt -v if everything is OK. If you get command not found, try adding
/usr/local/share/npm/bin to your PATH.
You'll need git. Now you can clone this repository:
git clone git://github.com/nwmartin/meteor-multidraw-demo.git
You should be able to set everything up and run the demo with
mrt run. Cheers!
