I am trying to follow the angular 2 socially tutorial
The starting point for which is this repo.
Unfortunately I am having a few problems following along.
Firstly, the tutorial says to use this command
meteor create --example angular2-boilerplate socially
But for me this just prompts me to clone the github repo, which I do.
I then do a
meteor npm install, which does it it’s thing.
However when I then try to run the app,
meteor does nothing, it just sits there with the cursor blinking.
So, what I tried next was to create an empty meteor project (
meteor create socially)
Then copy across all content from the cloned repo - with exception of the .meteor folder.
This works, in that
meteor now starts the app. However it does not have the correct packages for angular (obviously).
So I am now trying to add them in.
So far, I have done the following:
meteor remove ecmascript meteor update pbastowski:angular-babel meteor remove blaze-html-templates meteor add angular-templates
But, whilst the application still runs, it’s does not appear to be building the assets correctly.
The angular app does not load and if I look in dev tools, I see only the
packages folder under the app.
client folder and files are not there.
Any help much appreciated
UPDATE: I cloned the repo again. And these time ran meteor from a native command window and after waiting for it to download and install meteor (??) it now works.
