Installs Meteor onto Linux systems...

Module Description

Meteor is a new and exciting full stack javascript platform, that simplifies and shortcuts development efforts, yet it's a bit confusing on how to create a real production instance of the service. This puppet module aims to solve that problem.

It's designed to install meteor for the system, and selected user (root by default). Also it can be used to install MongoDB, Nginx, and PM2 for a production environment. It's currently HTTP only via a reverse proxy.

Installing meteor apps requires the orginal source files, and it then "builds" them into native node.js applications for hosting in PM2, with a nginx proxy.


What meteor affects

  • Installs meteor systemwide
  • Can be used to host production versions of a meteor app

Beginning with meteor

Simply install the module to your puppet module path

puppet module install vormetriclabs-meteor

or in Puppetfile/r10k/librarian-puppet

mod "vormetriclabs-meteor"


Just install it as root

include meteor

Installs it as a non-root user

class {"meteor":
    user => "meteor"


To use it as a class...

class {"meteor":


Host a meteor application

class {"meteor":}->
class { "meteor::app":
  app_name       => "simple-todos", # Application Name
  app_dir        => "/tmp/app_dir",  # Where the application bundle will be deployed/hosted
  app_root_url   => "http://simple-todos", # Actual URL for the application
  app_vhost_name => "simple-todos",  # Host name for nginx vhost setting
  from_source    => true,  # your application source is hosted in a git repo or not...
  source         => "",  # URL to checkout your application source
  app_source_dir => "/home/vagrant/simple-todos",  # temp directory to check out too, or where you put the application source.


Only tested on Ubuntu 12.04 and 14.04 32/64bits, but should work on any 32/64 bit Linux


There is a Vagrantfile present to test out the module. Just "vagrant up" and it should build and install meteor on the guest OS. However there are 2 prereqs to "vagrant up" successfully.

  • You'll need to install vagrant-librarian-puppet to your vagrant installation -
  • You'll need to create an empty folder in the project folder called "modules" it's a silly bug, that we'll get to someday :)

It does require vagrant-librarian-puppet, if you are using Windows you may need to use our fork until the Pull Request to fix the facter issue is merged. vormetriclabs/vagrant-librarian-puppet
