The framework has been designed to ease offline-ability and component re-use. It leverages modern web technologies like WebSockets and provides a reasonable class-system that enables you to use inheritance and scopes in an intuitive way.
Inspired by great frameworks like backbone.js, mongoose and express and motivated by the sedulous node.js-community we've been working hard to create a framework that really fits your needs. It is totally free and open source. Try it out - we're curious about your feedback!
