Meteor makes publicly testing your app very simple; with a single meteor deploy command, you can deploy and test your app on a meteor.com subdomain in a matter of seconds.
- [Voiceover] Today we will be going over…the first video in the final section, section five,…deploying your application.…This one is deploying to meteor.com.…Inherent inside of meteor is the ability…to deploy to the test servers that point…to meteor.com…I'll show you exactly how to do that…in the command line, it's very straight forward.…We'll look at modifying the existing service…that we have that is listening to our local host,…we'll have it listen instead to meteor.com.…And then we will also test the application…to make sure that they deployment was carried out properly.…
Okay now that our application is up and running…on local host we're ready to deploy this…to a server for testing.…So we're going to go into the command line,…meteor makes this very very easy to do…we're going to go ahead and stop our application.…And we're simply going to type meteor deploy and…then we're going to name it something unique.…In this case we're going to do packt-snippets.meteor.com.…Okay we could've entered anything but we decided…
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.
