Can't login and no debug info (Solved)



I’ve been developing an app over the last few days and having great fun with Meteor, but all of a sudden I stopped being able to login on my local development environment.

I’m using accounts-ui and accounts-bootstrap but nothing at all happens when I click Sign in, the only thing I can do is navigate between the Sign in register and resend email pages. Submitting any of those forms does nothing, nothing happens in the console, server or client. I was still logged into the live version of the app and everything was function normal, so I tried logging out. Same problem. Login not working with no feedback.

Has anyone had a similar issue like this? Where do I start looking for debugging info?

Many thanks


My own stupidity, while playing with a bit of the interface I had put an e.preventDefault() on all buttons and then forgotten about it. As the sign in forms are the only elements that do their default behaviour (i.e. submit a form), these no longer worked.


There are a couple of core accounts related event handlers on the server/client such as validateLoginAttempt. I’d start putting break points in your browser and server (hook onto login events) and narrowing down on what’s not getting called.


Thanks, I’ve just figured it out. See my edit.
