one line script doesn't work

asked 2016-07-21 07:54:22 -0500

So it's pretty basic, I have a one line script called (surprise) that goes something like this

MONGO_URL=somurl/meteor meteor --settings settings.json --port 3000

the thing is, if I run it like ./ I get the following error --port must include a port. which is crazy, because the port is there. Even crazier is, that if I just copy the line into the terminal, it works.

For the record, I tried adding a space, new line, prepending it with #/usr/bin/bash and stuff, but nothing helps. Any help, please?

The line you need at the top is actually #!/usr/bin/bash (note the !), unless you just typed it wrong in the question.

Try this:

meteor --settings settings.json --port 3000

or even export the variable

export MONGO_URL="..."

You may even have to do a

meteor --port someurl:3000
