centos meteor.js installation tutorial.
Meteor is an open-source platform for building top-quality web apps in afraction of the time, whether you’re an expert developer or just getting started.
In the following tutorial I’ll show you how it’s easy to install Meteor.js on your CentOS box. I am using centos 6.5 minimal, but those instruction should work on any centos 6.x machine.
While writing and exploring on Node.js I did lots of ‘yum remove/install’ for npm node.js.
after a while I realized that npm wasn’t installing anything and just returned an Error: cannot find module ‘block-stream’.
Another thing was that the folder ‘/usr/lib/nodejs/npm’ was lacking the ‘node_modules’ folder which includes its dependencies.
yum remove/install npm didn’t helped, the error also happened when I tried running ‘npm update’ or ‘npm install’.
I am using CentOS minimal 6.5, but the following instructions have been tested on 6.3+ and probably works on earlier versions also.
