- [Instructor] Today we'll be going over the second video…in section one of getting up and running with Meteor.…Specifically, we will be talking about how to set up Meteor.…We will go over which operating systems Meteor supports…and which ones it plans to support in the near future,…so you can get up and running quickly.…We'll also be doing a manual installation of Node and NPM…because Meteor depends on them…and you probably already have them installed anyway.…And then finally, we will do an actual installation…of Meteor from the command line.…So buckle up, we'll be up and running in no time.…
Open up a browser and navigate to meteor.com…and go ahead and click on Install Meteor…there in the middle, okay?…And we can see from here…all of the different operating systems that Meteor supports.…Meteor has always supported OS X and Linux…through the command line and the curl command…that you see right here.…We'll use that in just a minute…but we want to emphasize that as of the last release…Meteor now has official support for Windows,…
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.
