I’ve been developing with Meteor for a good year+ now. First I got used to Blaze, then that fell out of favor for React (or other view layers). I wanted to start a new project, but it seems that with ver1.5
.meteor/ is installed in my home dir as
~/.meteor on my macOS.
Looking for ways other devs set up their work environments to have multiple versions of Meteor on their dev machine.
For example, I’m still maintaining a ver1.4 app, which has it’s .meteor dir within the project dir. Now everything wants to put
.meteor in my local dir. I’ve even moved that new
~/.meteor dir to project dir, but then when I either
meteor run or
meteor npm start meteor insists on downloading a new distro to my local dir as it doesn’t find one there.
Also, it seems a config was changed (in my PATH?). When there is a valid distro
~/.meteor and I
meteor npm start from within my ver1.4 dir, it loads (and even says that there’s a patch for my 1.4 version) so I’m assuming that it’s using the local project dir’s .meteor dir. When I remove
~/.meteor dir, and try to run within my 1.4 dir guess what? “this is your first time using Meteor!” and a download and install commences within my local root dir (
Meteor keeps getting end-developer unfriendly (not as easy to spin up a new project as it was in pre version1) but is a much better end product, just…
