This app requires Node.js 10 or later to run the MeetupMap.js script. Before running that script for the first time, open a terminal or command prompt, change to the striim/docs/MeetupMap directory, and enter:

npm install

This will install all dependencies required by the script. You only need to do this once. After that, to run MeetupMap:

  1. Open a terminal or command prompt, change to striim/docs/MeetupMap, and enter:

    node MeetupMap.js

    This will copy the data from to HTTP port 60000, where it will be read by an HTTP Reader.

  2. Go to the Apps page in Striim, click Add App > Import Existing App, navigate to striim/docs/MeetupMap, double-click MeetupMap.tql, enter MeetupMap as the namespace (or select your personal namespace), and click Import. A command to import the dashboard is included in the TQL file.

  3. Deploy and start the app.

  4. Go to the Dashboards page and click MeetupMapDash.

The map will display the 50 most recent events. Hover the mouse over a dot to see details.
