Pakyow is an open-source framework for building modern web-apps in Ruby. It helps you build working software faster with a development process that remains friendly to both designers and developers. It's built for getting along.
Pakyow empowers the designer with a view-first development process.
The views are created in isolation from the back-end app, giving the designer complete control over the front-end through the entire development process.
Create a working, navigable prototype of your app without writing a line of back-end code. Later, add the back-end as a layer on top of the view, leaving the prototype intact.
Views describe what the UI is, not how it's built. Write views in HTML or the template language of your choice; no view logic and nothing new to learn.
gem install pakyow
Create a new Pakyow application from the command prompt:
pakyow new webapp
Move to the "webapp" directory and start the application:
cd webapp; pakyow server
You'll find the application at http://localhost:3000
