msg-rpc provides bidirectional RPC support over a simple message interface such as WebSocket. Tere are WebSocket examples based on socket.io and sockjs. It just has a simple sendMessage/onMessage interface, with no other dependencies. It supports not only normal RPC, but also RPC Service, which makes RPC pushable (i.e. the server can also send a request to the client and expect some kind of response).

OpenLaunch is a Web-based content management system that integrates a broad array of services into a single, fully-featured, elegantly designed Web site.

It is built around the Torpedo Framework, an open MVC framework which includes support for controllers, forms, and a large number of other very useful utilities.
