I have developed a small Meteor application at work for project planning / management. We’re a small company so it works great for us - now they want me to develop it even further and would become an essential tool for the company (planning to log hours & extract financial data)
We have a bunch of windows based servers in our LAN for network drives, application licenses, etc. - right now I just have meteor installed on one of the machines, the project is being pulled from a git repo and I just run the meteor run command in the machine itself to run the app. Then people open their browsers, point them to the machine’s IP address on port 3000 and use the app happily.
Is there anything wrong with this kind of setup / using the development MongoDB instance for a small-scale local application? I got a daily automated task that backs up the mongoDB data just in case. Any good reason I would have to go through a full-scale windows-based development (have it deployed locally is a priority and we have no linux machines), as I’ve read it can be quite tricky?
