If I run the command:

$> meteor add ethereum:web3

I get the following error message:

 => Errors while adding packages:             

While checking for ethereum:web3@0.18.4:
error: No compatible binary build found for this package. Contact the package author and ask them to publish it for your platform.

Does anybody have an idea what is going on here?

  • I am also having the same problem. Please let me know if you get the solution. Apr 2, 2017 at 23:37
  • I had a similar error with a nodejs package last week, could you point us to the docs where you found that instructions to add ethereum:web3?

    I used the command: $ meteor add ethereum:tools . This obviously installed the ethereum:web3 but with the version 0.15.3.
