Newbie: How to install a Meteor app downloaded from a git repo


#1

Hi there,

When a meteor app is downloaded from Github/Bitbucket - what is the way to build the app and it’s dependencies from the package.json so I can then run

meteor

Like rake build (RoR) or composer install (PHP)

Thanks

Jon.

-Max/Linux: Please open the terminal and run curl https://install.meteor.com/ | sh
After that you can create project by run meteor create simple-todos on CLI or Termial

Ahh I’ve figured it out. With meteor already installed on my OS, I did the following in terminal

meteor create dl-tut-meteor-fakebook

cd dl-tut-meteor-fakebook/

git init

git add remote origin 

git@github.com:mcknightg/fakebookmeteor.git

git pull origin master

meteor
