It's an interesting question that would deserve a whole article. In a nutshell, Layr is not a framework per se. It is a collection of low-level libraries that extend the abilities of JavaScript classes to make them remotely accessible.

After looking at Layr and having used Meteor more than I wanted to, it looks like the major difference is that instead of adding methods by calling Meteor.method to register one or more functions, and then calling them with a Meteor.call("todo.done"), there is a way to make any method or attribute available on the client by decorating it. I suspect if Meteor was created now (instead of in the age of CoffeScript), we'd have something that looks more like Layr. Layr could work very nicely. I wish I had a JS project I'm working on at the moment to try it out on.
