Demo [Meteor]( mobile app for [this stackoverflow question](
Demo [Meteor]( mobile app forked from [here](
The `master` branch contains original code referred to in the stackoverflow question. The `solution` branch contains working code.
## Try it out
## How to read the code
1. Clone this repository.
1. [Install prerequisites](
1. Enable USB debugging on the device.
1. Install and run app with `meteor run android-device`.
`client/main.js` contains all the interesting bits. Hints:
## Troubleshooting
1. `git show master:client/main.js`
1. `git show solution:client/main.js`
1. `git diff master:client/main.js solution:client/main.js`
### Cannot run on Android device
Check out `mobile-config.js`, too. Having the app `id` is handy, and setting the `AndroidExtraFilesystems` permission is necessary to be able to access external storage.
I tried `meteor run android-device` and was seeing errors like this:
## Test
Status of the requirements:
✓ Java JDK
✓ Android SDK
✗ Android target: ...snipped...
✗ Gradle: ...snipped...
1. Clone this repository, checkout `solution` branch.
1. [Install prerequisites](
1. Enable USB debugging on the device.
1. Start app with `meteor run android-device`.
1. Copy a file to the device's external storage.
1. Create a text file `a` with some contents.
1. Use something like `adb push a /sdcard/Android/data/`.
1. Open <chrome://inspect> in a browser.
1. Touch the button in the app and look for debug output in the console.
The fix was to make sure the SDK Platform with API Level "26" is installed, then run:
meteor remove-platform android
meteor add-platform android
