SproutCore - About
presentation about SproutCore @infoq by Yehuda Katz,
core contributor to jQuery, Ruby on Rails, and SproutCore.
For more complex web apps, "procedural" programming with using libraries
like jQuery results in complex solutions.
Alternative is more declarative, "MVC" based framework...
There is another similar framework, claiming to be "SproutCore 2"
The pace of changes in this area is clearly very fast...
webOS is using similar techniques,
so it is not surprising that despite an interesting idea
it could not compete from a slow corporate environment...
