Run Meteor without MongoDB?

I’ve been having issues with MongoDB and would like to use something else. What’s the best way to disable MongoDB with Meteor? I’ve tested MONGO_URL=RANDOM to disable the MongoDB connection and that seems to work fine. Just wondering if that’s the best way or if there’s anything else I should do?

We are taking the same approach and haven’t run into any issues (although we used MONGO_URL=“none” to be a bit more semantically accurate).

You can remove the packages that depend on it!


Ah fantastic, thank you. Sure, your wording makes more sense. I’ll upvote that issue.
