Do you mean that this ‘template’ is needed only because running the meteor CLI in the application root folder would somewhat not work? But why? Since you did not use the quasar CLI nor webpack, what is the problem? Also is the name ‘template’ arbitrary?
Could it be called ‘foo’ or ‘meteor’ and it would still work properly?
It has to be called ‘template’. That’s all I know.
@rstoenescu perhaps you could explain?
