Ive been playing with Avi Bryants continuation-based web framework Seaside,
which is written in Smalltalk. Wow. Thats all I can say. After some recent
work with Rails, I had come to admire the cleanliness of the frameworkeven
if, on occasion, I had some complaints about short-cuts taken that need not
be necessary. Compared to Seaside, Rails seems to me to be a jalopy. Dont
get me wrong, its a seriously pimped out jalopy, but the easy with which
one can build interactivity and modify it on the fly with Seaside is
NB: Dont take this as a slam of Rails, as its not. Rails is brilliantfor
what it is. It takes the historical model of page interaction and data
storage to new heights of simplicity. It doesnt, however, change how you
view the web. Seaside does. Whether you use it for your next project, or
not, its worth looking at, going through the tutorials, and allowing your
mind to conceive of a web that simply behaves more naturally.
With Seaside Avi wrote sth. interesting: dabbledb.com/about/.
