I’ve been falling in love with Meteor and React lately; here is a good tutorial if you haven’t used it before!
In one of the latest projects I’m involved with, Eventory.be, I had to use Microsoft Azure as the cloud environment to host Meteor on. Since I’m a beginner with Azure (and Meteor) I did what every self respecting developer does: I started googling “Meteor on Azure” as a mad man. However, I didn’t get that many useful hits. Eventually, I figured out how to host Meteor on Azure with Meteor UP (a command line tool), so yay for the internet and myself. To help other people out, I wrote the following guide to make Meteor work on Azure. What I did is not the only way, nor will I claim that it is the best way, but it worked for me.
Okay, enough BS and let’s get to business!
1. Install Meteor Up
I’m going to assume that you have installed Meteor and you have Node.js running on your computer.
Firstly, we want to install Meteor Up (mup) locally.
To do this, open your command prompt and typ:
npm install -g mup
Did that work? Great! Okay, let’s leave mup for now and get back on it later.
