Elefant is a full-featured, but refreshingly simple CMS and PHP Web framework. It features an intuitive, streamlined admin interface, a tightly integrated WYSIWYG editor, dynamically embeddable content objects for building dynamic Web sites without touching code, and an extremely fast, secure, and flexible framework for add-ons and themes. The core CMS includes page editing, a blogging engine, site navigation, file and user management, automatic version control, a tool for translators and multilingual site management, and an in-browser theme/layout editor. It is also extensively documented and has a small but friendly and active developer community.
Genit is a framework that builds a static Web site, which does not require a server side programming language or database. Generated sites consist only of XHTML code (plus CSS and media). It runs from the command line, is based on XML, and is designed to be simple, readable, and minimalist.
Butterfly Web UI is a component based Java Web application framework. Like the rest of the Butterfly Components, Butterfly Web UI is extremely small and very flexible. Butterfly Web UI uses Butterfly Container internally, a state of the art dependency injection container. Using Butterfly Web UI, it is easy both to generate HTML for a Web browser or XML or JSON for a RIA frontend (Flex, JavaFX, Silverlight) or AJAX frontend. You also can easily create HTML layout templates that are reused throughout your Web application, so you don't have the layout hardcoded into every page. You can easily mix RIA and non-RIA Web application technology in the same Web application.
Werc is a minimalistic RESTful Web application framework and content management system. It follows the Unix "tool philosophy" and it is designed to be fast, simple, convenient, and easily extensible. It handles both small and big sites and has a flexible system for user and group permissions. All data is stored in plain text files that can be easily manipulated with standard tools, without using any databases or other external dependencies. Existing applications include a blogging engine with RSS/Atom feeds, a wiki system that can easily integrate pre-existing documents (can be enabled for any directory tree), and others.
