Learn how to get your first Meteor app up and running in less than 10 seconds. Discover some of the secrets of developing applications quickly with Meteor.
- [Instructor] We will be going over the fourth video…in Section One today of Getting Up and Running with Meteor,…and that is Creating Your First Application.…To create your first application…you do it in three easy steps.…First we're going to use the meteor create tool…on the command line.…Next we're going to set up our file structure…that we learned about in our last video.…Then finally, we'll show you some tips…for monitoring and debugging…to make your development effort…that much easier and that much more rewarding.…Let's get started by going to the command line…and entering the command meteor create snippets.…
When we run this,…this will create a new Meteor application for us.…Simply go into that directory, see these snippets,…run Meteor, and we are off and running.…Our application is up and running with localhost 3000.…If we go into a browser, we can see, there we go,…Meteor is up and running,…and go ahead and click around a couple times…to make sure that it is all up and running correctly.…But there shouldn't be any problems doing that,…
Meteor is an incredibly powerful, impossibly fun platform for building responsive web and mobile applications. Meteor uses modular components, full-stack reactivity, and data on the wire, leading the charge toward truly effective application development.
Learning Meteor Application Development will get you up and running on the Meteor platform and on your way to creating web and mobile applications in hours instead of weeks. By taking advantage of all of Meteor's capabilities, you can take your development skills to the next level and build those "killer apps" you've been dreaming about.
Author Isaac Strack begins by installing Meteor, configuring the development environment, and building a baseline application. Then he shows how to create a full-stack application and build a simple, elegant, and data-reactive interface. He connects that UI to back-end services by creating a MongoDB data collection, Meteor DDP services, and a RESTful API. Finally, you'll learn how to test the application and deploy it to Meteor's servers or to a customized production environment, to show it off to the world.
