E44: Meteor Hello World

The goal of this experience is to practice our “standard practice” for working with Meteor:

Install Meteor

First, you need to install Meteor.

Be sure to check the Meteor, Node, and NPM tips reading for helpful hints.


First, watch me do it:

Your turn

Now, try it yourself:

  1. Create a GitHub repo called “meteor-hello-world”.

  2. Clone it to your local file space.

  3. cd into your local meteor-hello-world directory.

  4. Use meteor create meteor-hello-world to create an app called “meteor-hello-world” inside your repo.

  5. Change the name of the meteor-hello-world subdirectory to app/.

  6. cd into the app/ directory, run ‘meteor npm install’ and ‘meteor run’ to run the app. Go to http://localhost:3000 to see the app.

  7. Create an IntelliJ project called “meteor-hello-world” that points to your repo.

  8. Edit the top-level template and check to see that Meteor restarts and refreshes the page automatically.

  9. Commit your project to GitHub.

  10. Check to see that your project is saved on GitHub.
