Running Meteor 1.3 in tmux is Awesome

I’ve recently been having not much luck after the Meteor 1.3 upgrade (1.3.4.1 to be exact) with persisting my Meteor app’s running. nohup used to do the trick well, but I was facing issues with the app hanging/quitting without any visible errors.

Then I came across tmux – like screen but apparently more modern and nicer. My app at Skater.Life has been running for days without issues using this – nohup failed me at this pretty consistently.

So all I really had to do was to run tmux then I would go to my Meteor app directory then just run meteor with the settings and flags I need.

After that, I press ctrl + b then d to detach from that session/screen. I can later on, go back into that session/screen by running tmux attach which is pretty awesome.

By the way, trying to run Telescope Nova via PM2 was a big headache – if you know a way, let me know! 🙂
