[SOLVED] Meteor shell suddenly not working

My Meteor app is running, and yet:

$ meteor shell
Server unavailable (waiting to reconnect)

How do I troubleshoot this? This happened at a critical time when I really needed to use it, too. :confused:

EDIT: One of my projects exhibits this behavior, the other one is fine. And I’ve already tried a meteor reset which didn’t help.

Ok, so it looks like at some point, the shell server became a separate package and I didn’t know this. Also, that package is gone from my project somehow. Running meteor add shell-server fixed this!
