Bike is a Web application framework that can make feature-rich applications using HTML files only. You need no database setup (by default), no scheme definition, and no command-line voodoo. Just put a good old HTML file under skin/, and your new app is already running. Bike is front-ended by Rack, back-ended by Sequel.
HTMLSplicer is a toolkit that provides methods to compose complex HTML documents from simpler HTML documents, called templates. It can be used to generate servlet responses in Java Web applications, without adopting a full-fledged presentation layer framework like JSP, JSF, Apache Wicket, or GWT.
JWt (Java Web Toolkit) is a library for developing accessible and interactive Web applications with an API that is widget-centric and inspired by desktop GUI APIs. To the developer, it offers abstraction of Web-specific implementation details, including graceful degradation. Under the hood, the library uses the latest techniques when available to handle events and update the user interface.
Jenner is a Web page templating system with a twist: it runs completely within a Web browser. Templates are just normal Web pages with special syntax inside text nodes, attributes, or comments. Unlike other in-browser templating systems, Jenner does not require overloading of "class" attributes or invalid HTML; all Jenner templates are valid Web pages and the template expressions flow in a very natural way. Having the template engine in the Web browser instead of on the server takes a lot of load off of the server, and makes for a clean separation of presentation and content. Jenner is very powerful: it has the full power of the Esel expression language at its disposal. Templates can be rendered from JSON data, and can be re-rendered without a browser-to-server round trip.
Kohana is a PHP 5 framework that uses the Model View Controller architectural pattern. It aims to be secure, lightweight, and easy to use. Although it reuses many common design patterns and concepts, there are some things that make Kohana stand out. It is community driven, uses strict PHP 5 OOP to provide visibility protection, automatic class loading, overloading, interfaces, abstracts, and singletons, and is extremely lightweight. Kohana has no dependencies on PECL extensions or PEAR libraries. Large, monolithic libraries are avoided in favor of optimized solutions.
