doesn't work on android App


Did somebody try creating an app for android/ios with Meteor 1.3? I created a simple app wich has only one method. It works like that: When a button is clicked, the method is invoked - it calculates a specific value and returns the result.

The app works perfectly on the localhost server, but when I launch it on my device with “meteor run android-device”, it cannot access the method (simply opens the app, but nothing happens when I press a button.

Do you know how I could resolve this?

import { Template } from 'meteor/templating';
import { ReactiveVar } from 'meteor/reactive-var';
import { ReactiveDict } from 'meteor/reactive-dict';

import './main.html';

Template.check.onCreated(function checkOnCreated() {
   this.state = new ReactiveDict();
 'click .checkit'(event, instance) {'code.check', function(error, result){
        console.log('Error from the client side!');
      } else {
        instance.state.set('fett', result.titles[0]);



    fett() {
      const instance = Template.instance();
      if (instance.state.get('fett')) {
         return instance.state.get('fett');
      } else {
         return 'Value still not known...'


I fixed that part in the code, but unfortunately, it didn’t resolve the problem. I think the problem is that is never executed because no error message is displayed! The value of the reactive variable just never changes.


I’m opening the program on my android with “meteor run android-device”. It automatically creates an app on my phone which then I can launch. Both are connected to the same WiFi…


It could be the “click” event!

Is at least one of mobile-experience or fastclick packages installed?

Because on mobile, a click is not triggered within the first 300ms therefore your event handler might actually not be firing due to that!
