Pakyow Web Framework Gitter chat

Pakyow lets you build modern apps that don't break the web.

It provides features such as auto-updating views while embracing traditional concepts like progressive enhancement. Designed to be as simple as possible, it helps you quickly create momentum and maintain it throughout a project.

Embraces the new web (without breaking it).
Views automatically stay in sync with the server, with no extra code. Pakyow brings progressive enhancement to the modern web.

Removes friction from development.
Quickly build a prototype with only HTML and CSS. Later on, build right on top of the prototype without throwing out previous work.

Accessible to everyone.
Pakyow makes it a little bit easier to get started. We believe that a simpler web empowers more contribution, leading towards a more democratic web.
