meteor Full Installation - Mac OSX Mongo Installation


Example

Meteor doesn't exist in isolation, and it's common to install a number of extra tools for development, such as Mongo, Robomongo, Atom, Linters, etc.

# make sure mongo is in your local path
nano ~/.profile
  export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/mongodb/bin

# or install it to the global path
nano /etc/paths
  /usr/local/mongodb/bin

# create mongo database directory
mkdir /data/
mkdir /data/db
chown -R username:admin /data

# run mongodb server
mongod
ctrl-c

# check that you can connect to your meteor app with stand-alone mongo
terminal-a$ meteor create helloworld
terminal-a$ cd helloworld
terminal-a$ meteor

terminal-b$ mongo -port 3001

# install robomongo database admin tool 
http://robomongo.org/

# check you can connect to your mongo instance with robomongo
terminal-a$ meteor create helloworld
terminal-a$ cd helloworld
terminal-a$ meteor

Dock$ Robomongo > Create > localhost:3001
