[Video] Servoy vs MeteorJS
All of which has very little to do with actually writing your web application!
The holy grail of web application development is starting from a point where all the brute grunt work is already done for you so you can focus on just writing and deploying an application. Meteor makes a compelling case that they have figured this out.
Of course Servoy has been doing this for years. So I sat down today and replicated the Meteor demo video with Servoy. Many similarities and some slight differences which I discuss as I go through the same steps they do to build and deploy a complete application.
You can find the Meteor screencast I referenced here: http://www.meteor.com/screencast

Will Meteor be trendy with the Web 2.0 crowd for 6 months and then disappear? We'll wait and see ...

With the bazillion JS stuff out there and Meteor only solving a very limited set of needs for the entrepreneur developer types and even less for the enterprise developer types I wouldn't put bets on it.
The concepts it is focusing -- easy of development to deployment cycle and automatic IO -- will definitely stick around.
