Meteor is an ultra-simple environment for building modern web

With Meteor you write apps:

  • in pure Javascript
  • that send data over the wire, rather than HTML
  • using your choice of popular open-source libraries

Documentation is available at

Installing on a Raspberry Pi device

Download the Raspbian Wheezy armhf Raspberry Pi minimal image and put it on a 1+ GB SD card:

Start up the OS on the device using the SD card you built

Install packages required by fibers and Meteor:

apt-get update
apt-get install python make g++ curl

Install Meteor:

mkdir /opt/meteor
cd /opt
git clone
cd meteor/scripts
cd ..

To add Meteor to your PATH, run nano /etc/profile and then put the following right before the export PATH line:

# add Meteor to path

Log out of the terminal session and go back in, to make the PATH change take effect

Setup mongodb (change to address of a mongo database running on a different computer -- doesn't support running locally yet):

export MONGO_URL=mongodb://

Create and run a Meteor app:

mkdir ~/apps
cd apps
meteor create --example todos
cd todos


  • Implement support for running mongodb locally
