This line doesn't work for me:

chown -R $USER:$USER "$pkgdir$HOME/.meteor/"

I don't have a group that is named the same as the user. I do belong to a "users" group, though. I'm coming from Manjaro KDE.

Installing in your $HOME directory now, just like the official Meteor installer.
But still taking a lot of time to install the resulting package, like @darkbasic said.

$ meteor create test

Is it just me or it really takes a lot of time to install the resulting package? Specifically for the "loading package" phase.

Updated to 1.3

ottod, this is a wrong behavior that I had not realized until now.
I'm working on a solution based on the suggestions made by cameel.

PKGBUILD installs the wrapper script that downloads the framework in /usr/bin/meteor. There's no point in that because the package already provides all the necessary files. /usr/bin/meteor should instead link directly to /opt/meteor/meteor. That's actually what a comment in the install script suggests:

# This is the script that we install somewhere in your $PATH (as "meteor")
# when you run
# $ curl | sh
# It's the only file that we install globally on your system; each user of

# All this script does is exec ~/.meteor/meteor. But what if you don't have it
# yet? In that case, it downloads a "bootstrap tarball", which contains the
# latest version of the Meteor tools, and plops it down at ~/.meteor. In fact,
# once you've run this once, you don't even really need this script: you can put
# ~/.meteor/ into your PATH, or a symlink to ~/.meteor/meteor into some other
# PATH directory. No special permissions needed!

Since the PKGBUILD puts the files in /opt/meteor instead of ~/.meteor, we need to set METEOR_WAREHOUSE_DIR variable to point at the right directory.

There's one big problem though - meteor expects write access to /opt/meteor/package-metadata/v2.0.1 where its package database ( is stored and will crash without it.

Here are my modifications but because of this problem it's not a complete solution.

I installed this for the first time. When I called the meteor command without arguments just to test, the command did not find ~/.meteor so it downloaded meteor again on its own. Am I missing something?

Updated to 1.2.1

The install file just curls the tar.gz, links for 1.2.1 (currently the latest release) are:
