I have tried:
Meteor update
Npm update
Meteor reset
Restarted computer

I have been checking

Have i forgot to delete og update some dependencies? or is there a new way to structure files and folders?

I’ve just tried updating my Vue project to Meteor 1.8.2 and do not experience this problem.

Did you remember meteor npm install @babel/runtime@latest ?

Edit: Came across this bug report though:


I have seen it, when i use this and update it to 1.8.2 there is no problem, it is something in my packages or the manner I include vue

This dont work:

meteor package

// Libs
import {Meteor} from 'meteor/meteor';
import {Vue} from 'meteor/akryum:vue';
import routerFactory from '/imports/routes.js';
import VueMeteorTracker from 'vue-meteor-tracker'

const moment = require('moment')

Vue.use(require('vue-moment'), {


import Trend from 'vuetrend';


// App layout
import AppLayout from '/imports/ui/AppLayout.vue';

// App start
Meteor.startup(() => {
  // Start the router
  const router = routerFactory.create();
  new Vue({
    render: h => h(AppLayout),

I’m not sure that is the correct way to import Vuetify. This works for me:

import Vuetify from 'vuetify';
import 'vuetify/dist/vuetify.min.css';
Vue.use(Vuetify, {
	iconfont: 'mdi',

Also, instead of this:

import {Meteor} from 'meteor/meteor';
import {Vue} from 'meteor/akryum:vue';

Try: "meteor remove akryum:vue" since you already have it as an npm module, then:

// no need to import Meteor
import Vue from 'vue';

Also, is there any reason you have locked akryum:vue-router2 to @=0.2.0 in .meteor/packages? I use the latest quite happily,

Also, I highly reccommend akryum:vue-pug - once you’ve started writing Vue templates in pug all your old html templates will look ugly and verbose :wink: Plus it generates slightly smaller template render functions because all superfluous white space is removed.

If you ever need to upgrade to Vuetify 2 then see here: I tried upgrading but quickly rolled back to 1.5.7 because all components pretty much need to be rewritten.

I think you should also take another look at this comment on the the bug report.

Looks like this is only a problem when components are automatically registered by being in the client folder (which mine aren’t, hence I was OK). If you move them into the imports folder and manually import them then you should be OK. Another benefit of moving them into the imports folder is SSR check this out :wink:

Alternatively you could try the forked package as mentioned in that github comment.

Thanks @wildhart I will try it out. I hope it works, I have two other projects that needs the same remake if it works

Were you successful in resolving this?

I’m encountering the same problem after updating a project

Also getting this message in console (not sure if related):

The version of @babel/runtime installed in your node_modules directory 
(7.7.0) contains a breaking change which was introduced by Please either downgrade by 
running the following command:

  meteor npm install --save-exact @babel/runtime@7.0.0-beta.55

or update to the latest beta version of Meteor 1.7.1, as explained in 
this pull request:

I didn’t have time yet to try it out

Now I get this error:

put your App.vue into the imports foldder it will work good.
Move your files in an imports directory and import them manually

I can’t find a app.vue file

My .vue files are in import -< UI
