Upgrading Meteor project

I am looking at a Meteor project (FlowBAT - https://github.com/chrissanders/FlowBAT)

After following their (well-constructed) install script, the server side fails to start, with an error message of:

Error: '/home/richb/FlowBAT/private/bundle/programs/server/node_modules/fibers/bin/linux-ia32-v8-4.6/fibers.node' is missing. Try reinstalling `node-fibers`?

I am not specifically asking for a diagnosis: I’ve submitted an issue over at github (although tips about workarounds would be welcome…) But…

If I wanted to bring the project up to current Meteor (1.4), what should be my strategy? Do I need to convert the coffeescript files? Are there automagic tools for doing this? (Pointers to web pages/user guides/etc. would be great.) Thanks!

In case you’re not aware of it, there is a guide for upgrading to 1.4 at https://guide.meteor.com/1.4-migration.html.

Also, as I recall, the Meteor blog has some posts on this topic. I don’t have the links handy but the content should be easy enough to find.

In a similar vein, you should also be able to find articles in the guide for missing through every major version. Those should help you get from 1.1 to 1.4 in the best possible way

Thanks for the link to the 1.3->1.4 guide (I had already found that one via a little Googling.)

Does anyone know of earlier conversion guides (1.1 -> 1.2; 1.2 -> 1.3)? Thanks.

In the left-hand bar on the Meteor Guide page, scroll up to the top. You’ll notice the version there. You can change that to get to older versions of the guide, each of which has a migration guide.
