Production Quality Meteor Deployments

Meteor Up is a command line tool that allows you to deploy any Meteor app to your own server.

You can install and use Meteor Up on Linux, Mac and Windows. It can deploy to servers running Ubuntu 14 or newer.

This version of Meteor Up is powered by Docker, making deployment easy to manage and reducing server specific errors.

Read the getting started tutorial.


  • Single command server setup
  • Single command deployment
  • Deploy to multiple servers, with optional load balancing and sticky sessions
  • Environment Variable management
  • Support for settings.json
  • Password or Private Key (pem) based server authentication

Server Configuration

  • Auto-restart if the app crashes
  • Auto-start after server reboot
  • Runs with docker for better security and isolation
