I am new to Meteor and have tried several tutorial sample programs. None seem to work with templates. Instead of doing what it is supposed to the html just displays the raw code.
As far as I know, there is no Runner for Meteor. In this case, when you click “Run” for your HTML file, it starts Apache by default.
meteor --port $IP:$PORT in your terminal, and it should work.
EDIT: actually, there is a runner for Meteor, but this one is not selected by default on a Meteor Template.
