Meteor Experiments Begin

Actually, I already began earlier when I ran through the Meteor tutorial. And I continued with creating a file structure and testing that. But now, I’m trying in earnest to run some packages I need.

I want to start with the bigvideo.js package but it doesn’t already have a package that I can just “meteor add <whatever>”, so I will have to install any dependencies and then see I can uh, add files I need? No sure what the process is because I am a neophyte to JavaScript and NodeJS frameworks as well.

First we’ll copy over our barebones boilerplate.

wmodes$ cp -r barebones-meteor-boilerplate/ jquery-test/

Dependencies

Next we’ll start by installing some needed packages. First jquery and scrollmagic, both easy because there are Meteor packages already prepared.

wmodes$ meteor add jquery
jquery: Manipulate the DOM using CSS selectors
wmodes$ meteor search scrollmagic
Found the following packages:
hipstersmoothie:scrollmagic ScrollMagic repackaged for Meteor.
To get more information on a specific item, use meteor show
wmodes$ meteor add hipstersmoothie:scrollmagic
Changes to your project's package version selections:
hipstersmoothie:scrollmagic added, version 0.0.1
infinitedg:gsap added, version 1.13.1

hipstersmoothie:scrollmagic: ScrollMagic repackaged for Meteor.

I want to install bigvideo.js for which there is no Meteor package available for it. But we can easily install its dependencies, Video.js, jQuery (already done), jQuery UI and the jQuery imagesloaded plugin.

wmodes$ meteor search videojs
Found the following packages:
jrudio:videojs A meteor package to for VideoJS
mrt:videojs-b3 A smart package that makes it easy to use Video.js
natestrauser:videojs A smart package that makes it easy to use Video.js
yong:meteor-videojs Video.js 4.10.2
To get more information on a specific item, use meteor show
wmodes$ meteor add jrudio:videojs
Changes to your project's package version selections:
jrudio:videojs added, version 4.11.2
