Running MongoDB 3.4 locally with meteor

We are running Mongo DB 3.4 in production with meteor and its really great - the new aggregation possibilities are awesome.

When running meteor locally is there an easy way to upgrade meteor to MongoDB 3.4?

I think you can install mongodb 3.4 on your machine and point meteor to it like you do it in production by setting up the env variable before running meteor command. Assuming your new mongodb is running on 27017

MONGO_URL=“mongodb://localhost:27017/xxxxx” meteor --settings settings.json

Thanks. I also had that idea. Makes sense… Was hoping there is a way to update the core mongo in meteor to 3.4 just for the convenience of it.
