I have come to a conclusion that meteor can not be trusted in a real development environment.
I used Meteor in windows perfectly happily for sometime but a couple of weeks ago it simply stopped working.
Could not, and still can’t, run existing apps, create new apps or even update via the command line.
Even going back to an earlier version has no effect.
My only partial saving grace was that it still worked in Ubuntu, at least with regards new projects, but even that has now stopped working!!
I now find Meteor totally useless and nothing seems to be being done about it and windows users seem to be considered second class citizens.
I have now moved on and it is unlikely that I will waste my time with Meteor again because we all have to rely on the MDG producing reliable stable working versions of Meteor and it’s not something they seem able to do.
So my question remains ‘why would anyone use Meteor in a real world paying web developing project?’
