Using meteor when mongodb is not available


#1

Hi, I managed to get Meteor running on my low cost VPS. But there’s a catch. MongoDB is not available. What’s the logical learning path now? Just use meteor as a client with some static JSON data files on the server? Connect to Postgres or MySQL?

I took a look at python-ddp, but it’s not clear how to use it or what use case it’s for.

Thank you.

I’d recommend to get a cheap MongoDB instance on Compose.io. Or, move everything to a full-stack provider like NodeChef. Without MongoDB, Meteor is half of fun.
