Restivus not supported on Meteor 2.3?

I just upgraded Meteor from v1.8 to v2.3 and now I am getting these errors:

Errors prevented startup:                  
   While selecting package versions:
   error: Conflict: Constraint accounts-password@1.3.3 is not satisfied by accounts-password 2.0.1.
   Constraints on package "accounts-password":
   * accounts-password@2.0.0 <- top level
   * accounts-password@~2.0.0 <- top level
   * accounts-password@1.3.3 <- nimble:restivus 0.8.12

This is the only hurdle that is stopping me from upgrading to Meteor 2.3.
Is there any fix for this?

There are lots of similar questions in the forum, please search a bit for “accounts-password” as there are old and unattended packages that require an older version.

Use Maka Rest package. it is the new version of Restivus and compatible with 2.3.


I used this fork and it worked very fine. No changes necessary.

Doesn’t work. It says;
Restivus is undefined

You can use my compatibility fork:

meteor add renanccastro:restivus

However, I do recommend migrating to maintened packages, as I’ve only published a compat version, without further support for the library.


I will give it a try and post the results here

You should use:

import { Restivus } from 'meteor/maka:rest';

I am using pure JavaScript

This worked perfectly fine for me. Thanks!
