MeteorD is a Docker runtime for Meteor apps that offers two main methods of usage. The first method involves building a Docker image for your app using the `meteorhacks/meteord:onbuild` base image. This allows you to easily run your app as a Docker image. The second method is running a Meteor bundle with Docker. MeteorD supports bundles from both local mounts and the web. Additionally, there are instructions for using Docker Compose to start a Meteor container with a Mongo container. The post also provides guidance on rebuilding binary npm modules and mentions known issues such as Spiderable not working and a workaround for starting containers on Joyent's Triton infrastructure.
