Angular2 Meteor tutorial errors at meteor add accounts-password


I’m trying to do the Angular2 Meteor tutorial and i made it to part8 User Accounts.

When i try to meteor add accounts-password, i get many errors, the app crashes and i don’t know how to pass it.

Can someone tell me why this is happening?


The tutorial was upgraded to use the new Angular2 router v3. It appears the angular2-meteor-accounts-ui package hasn’t been upgraded to use it or fully debugged. I’m seeing these errors in Step 8.


Here’s a link to my broken Socially Step 08 repo in case anyone needs it…


Can you please try to the new angular2-meteor-accounts-ui version that we released today?


Thanks @Urigo, it works now with the new version “angular2-meteor-accounts-ui@0.6.1”.


I am getting the same errors as mentioned in the first post when installing meteor add accounts-password

Hmm insitead of parties i used users, and just now i’m thinking, could this be conflicting with probably the default users db that Meteor is using for accounts?

Edit: Ok that was it! :)) Put a warning sign, for newbies like me, DO NOT USE users AS DATABASE! xD
