You realize that's just a clone of Meteor right? Meteor innovated this idea already many years ago.

Please have a look at the documentation and see by yourself how far Layr is from Meteor.

I already did, and didn’t see anything novel compared to Meteor or even isomorphic frameworks in other languages. And since it’s new, I bet it doesn’t handle as many edge cases yet, so I don’t trust it. That’s my opinion, take it or leave it. In any case, I’m a Ruby/Java developer. I don’t do much JS these days anyways except inside Opal libraries/frameworks (Ruby compiled to JavaScript in the browser). Cheers.

Let me give you a hint: cross-layer inheritance.

Saw that too. Developers could already do that before since classes/prototypes are shared in Meteor anyways with a toggle for writing extra code as client only (or server only), enabling one to do extra inheritance on the client (or server) when needed. And, that was back in 2014 or earlier if I remember right.

What you're talking about is very different. Layr doesn't share code across layers, it transports the state of the objects when you call a method. To see what I mean, try to implement the example given in the article with Meteor.
