    Found this new framework well i think it is a framework anyway for Javascript.

    Some of the applications look pretty interesting and the language its self is rather elegant to read.

    Demos

    Of most interest to me is a application called timetable

    Thanks for posting the link! Looks very cool.

    One thing -- the #1 major huge all-important don't-forget-about-it point I stress, whenever I see new Javascript frameworks like this with names that reference yet another form of hot beverage is:

    Familiarity with JavaScript is recommended

    If you don't believe me, I actually quoted that right from the same web site. Meaning, learn core JS and how the DOM works before you use a framework, even the quality ones like this.

    Further:

    Cappuccino is not designed for building web sites, or making existing sites more "dynamic".

    So remember all frameworks extend site functionality. And, I'll add, remember Javascript can be disabled by anyone, so bear this in mind in your design.

    This post is NOT directed at babyjenniferLB but to anyone who is new to development as this forum is, of course, a teaching environment. FYI!

    What did you make of the timetable app, it looks pretty well set up and perhaps something i would consider using daily for dealing with my clients.

    Also wondering how it saves to a database or file without something like php or ruby.

    This has been around a while (2008).

    280Slides from 280North is written in cappuccino.

    They are working on an XCode/IB like IDE called Atlas
