Cuca - a web application framework

Cuca is another web application framework written in Ruby. It's made to build applications with focus on functionality - less design. You can create and application without writing HTML. Once written Widgets (a smart screen element) can be reused thorough your project with minimum effort allowing to build fast and secure web applications.

It implements the following concepts:

  • A Widget is a screen element. Can be a full page or part of it. The Controller and the Layout are Widgets, too.
  • A Controller deals with one request URI (get, post or both) and can set variables other widgets can make use of. It can also define a Layout and filters.
  • A Layout wraps the output of a controller and finally return the built web page.
  • A Generator (NOT "code generator") can be used within any Widget to help building the web content. Cuca comes with a Markaby and eruby Generator.
  • A Session can used optionally to keep stateful data.

Cuca was written for internal use in 2008 and as per 2013 we keep using and improving it.
