Choco

Choco by Anthony Heukmes is a framework for building web apps built from one HTML page. It's a bit like
Cappuccino and SproutCore, except a lot simpler. It's built from 3 other
libraries:

  • Sammy - a client-side, jQuery-based Sinatra style routing framework
  • js-model - a way of handling data structures in the client
  • Jim - yet another JavaScript package manager

Most of Choco seems to be built by Ruby developers, and the author has a
Rails 3 example project. If you're building Rails projects you might
find something useful here.

JS1k

Angus contacted us about JS1k which is a
conference to build a JavaScript demo in no more than 1024 bytes. This
doesn't include external libraries, but minification is allowed. The
conference is organised by Peter van der Zee, and it seems to have a
demo scene attitude about it.

There have been JavaScript related scene demos in the past (search
Scene.org), but it's good to see this type of thing in our area of interest and I hope JS1k gets some awesome entries.
