[SOLVED] Docker (meteord) failing to build on Meteor

Hi, has anyone had success running a app in Docker with @arunoda 's meteord script? https://github.com/meteorhacks/meteord

Every time I try to run the container I get the following error:

docker run \
>   -e ROOT_URL=http://domain.com \
>   -e MONGO_URL=mongodb:// \
>   -e PORT=4000 \
>   -e METEOR_SETTINGS="$(cat settings.json)" \
>   -p 4000:4000 \
>   user/project
=> Starting meteor app on port:4000

Running a 1.2.x project, I had no issues. Does anyone have any solutions to this? I saw no issues on the github repo, which makes me think it may just be me, not an issue with the dockerfile.
