Twitter Flight

Flight is distinct from existing frameworks in that it doesn't prescribe or provide any particular approach to rendering or providing data to a web application. It's agnostic to how requests are routed, which templating language you use or even if you render your HTML on the client or the server. While some web frameworks encourage developers to arrange their code around a prescribed model layer, Flight is organized around the existing DOM model with functionality mapped directly to DOM nodes. Flight likely isn’t as easy to learn and use compared to some of the other, more popular, JavaScript frameworks like Angular or Ember, but it provides enormous flexibility architecturally, showing real promise for building more complex applications.
