Opa is a full-stack platform for building web applications that can be
easily deployed to cloud services or a private server. It includes the
Opa language, and generates suitable client-side code for browsers.
In a sense it reminds me of projects like SproutCore and
Cappuccino, but it's taking an approach more
like server-oriented architectures that have cropped up over the last
decade (yet failed to catch on, for example: JWIG).

Somehow I missed this companion project to the popular Lettering.js, but in case you also missed
it... FitText (GitHub: davatron5000 /
FitText.js) by Dave Rupert
and Paravel resizes text to fit the parent
element. It makes creating fluid magazine-like layouts possible, just by
using appropriate CSS and \$('#responsive_headline').fitText();.
There's also an interesting comment in the readme about window.resize:
Lettering.js has recently added a gallery of sites that use their
styles; it's worth checking out, too.
Zoomooz (GitHub: jaukia /
zoomooz) by Janne Aukia makes
elements on a page "zoomable" -- the page apparently zooms into a
smaller slice of content. The example on the project's homepage consists
of small tiles which zoom in when clicked.
Amplify (GitHub: appendto /
amplify, MIT/GPL) provides a
unified API for data sources. A set of components are provided for
managing data-related tasks: the store component manages client-side
data, a request component provides enhancements to jQuery's Ajax
library, and there's also a pub/sub system. It's like a Swiss Army knife
