This ain’t your daddy’s web framework

leave a comment »

Heard of seaside? It’s a web application frame work developed in smalltalk. A Seaside application can be thought of as a tree of stateful components as opposed to most other frameworks that are stateless such as cakephp and rails.

Randal L. Schwartz from Stonehenge (a leading pearl developer) believes that seaside will be the next rails. Schwartz would say that though as he is one of the most early adopters of small talk working on the first gui systems at xerox. That said its certainly an interesting premise for a web application framework. Another interesting part of seaside is the fact that the language it’s built in(small talk) has been around for 20 years. So, although this is not your daddy’s framework it sure is your daddy’s language.
