Struggles to install Meteor with chocolatey ? Want the good old installer to install Meteor on Windows and manage it like any other program?
Where is it ? you may ask. Here it is: the old Meteor installer
MDG folks removed it because it didn’t work perfectly. Well it works better for me !
Why, for local development sake, would I need to install chocolatey only to get Meteor ? Do I need chocolatey to install node? to install git? NO
Chocolatey is not a windows standard way to install a program.
It comes with a lot of overhead (especially because it can mess up the PATH env variable and require to use the command line tool on windows).
If your path is too long with path of chocolatey + meteor + existing path, you’re onboard for a lot of troubles.
I would advise that it is wiser to provide the installer back on Meteor website. We need a direct link.
Please people join me if you believe it should be as easy as to install a program to get started on Meteor for Windows users.
