New package - jam:method - An easy way to create Meteor methods

Hmm that’s weird. I just tried to reproduce it but couldn’t.

I have a theory though. It’s kind of a long story but essentially I had unfortunate timing when I originally published the package – it happened to be during the Atmosphere outage on Oct 31. The Meteor team helped me resolve the issue and I republished the package which seemed to work correctly. Since you’re seeing this issue, I wonder if there is still something wonky.

@philippeoliveira do you have any ideas?

One thing you could do is remove Meteor’s local package db and reinstall Meteor (assuming you’re on Mac):

1. sudo rm /usr/local/bin/meteor
2. rm -rf ~/.meteor
3. curl | sh

I have downloaded the source code under /packages folder and quickly implemented it with Zod. Your package seems SUPER.

Awesome, thanks! Let me know if you have any ideas to improve it.

Just tried to install the package and got this:

Thanks for reporting. I think this can only be fixed by the Meteor team. I opened a new issue to ask for their help.

In the meantime, you can use the package locally by copying it from GitHub and adding it to a packages folder at the root of your project.

Alternatively, I believe if you clear Meteor’s cache on your machine and reinstall Meteor, it should fix it:


Could you try running the commands Jam mentioned and let us know if everything goes smoothly afterwards?

Has the Meteor installation on your MacOS been recent or has it been there for some time?

There’s was no /usr/local/bin/meteor
Step 2 and 3 did the trick, though.
