Meteor-1.6 does not support deprecated CFS:gridFS

Just updated to Meteor JS 1.6 and the deprecated cfs:gridfs throws this error, what’s the workaround? Any better alternatives if this will not work with Meteor-1.6.

Your application is crashing. Waiting for file change.
=> Modified – restarting.
=> Errors prevented startup:

While checking for cfs:gridfs@0.0.33:
error: No compatible binary build found for this package. Contact the package author and ask them to publish it
for your platform.

You can fork the package so that you can build it yourself with compatible binaries. The step is simple, just fork and clone it into your packages directory and run your meteor app.

@serkandurusoy You mean fork it on Github and build? Assuming I have downloaded it on my Windows computer, how do I build it?

There you go :slight_smile:

people still do web dev with Windows? :no_mouth:


It’s getting better all the time.
