Meteor.sh is a nice little tool to setup a meteor server and deploy to it. It was written by Simon Ernst because:
Deploying to custom servers should be as simple as everything else in Meteor.
It’s really easy to use, just move
meteor.sh into your projects directory. Next, open it up in your favorite text-editor and change the
APP_HOST variables. That’s it! You can now run the shell script from your command line to deploy your code!

While researching another Meteor.js focused opinion post (soon to be posted), I stumbled onto Ground Control from Tom Coleman, which is literally days old in terms of announcement, but 6 months old in commits.
From the announcement post:
Ground Control is still fairly bare-bones at this point, but it does allow you do the following:
- Write posts in Markdown
- Set a global email domain for admin users (e.g. @percolatestudio.com)
- Invite users manually if an email domain is not appropriate
- Publish and un-publish posts, as well as manage your post list
- Subscribe to the posts via RSS (see the link on the top right)
There’s a lot more that can be done to make Ground Control awesome, and we’d love your help!
Ground Control creator–Tom Coleman–has his own blog running on Ground Control. So, at least the basic concept is out there.

Database Everywhere. Use the same transparent API to access your database from the client or the server.
Meteor appears to be an eclectic blend of proven solutions, using Handlebars for templating and its own package manager to pull in other dependencies.
