During the talk, Meteor and Derby were mentioned, and Mojito *sigh*. And Stitch was also mentioned, as a part of the stack they’re using. So anyway, there you have it. The Holy Grail I talked about. It’s out, but admittedly, according to Spike, not quite “finished”. Caveat emptor.
Later in the talk Spike mentions they were heavily inspired by Chaplin, which you can set up quickly by reading my recent post on developing modern web applications.
