General Development "Opa, a new opensource programming language aiming to make web development transparent has been publicly launched. Opa automatically generates client-side Javascript and handles communication and session control. The ultimate goal of this project is to allow writing distributed web applications using a single programming language to code application logics, database queries and user interfaces. Among existing applications already developed in Opa, some are worth a look. Best place to start is the project homepage which contains extensive documentation while the code of the technology is on GitHub. A programming challenge ends October 17th." This is weird. 'Opa' is the nickname my friends gave me 6 years ago. It's still used more often than my actual name...

Member since:

Maybe LGPLv3? Allows linking/using the framework without 'infecting' the code 'linking' against it. It also solves the Tivoization problem which is obviously a concern with server side code that gets deployed but not distributed in the traditional sense.
