Hi there,

Yesterday I released Obviel. Some of you who were at the forest sprint 
last year heard about it then. It's now a rewrite further along, and 
I've finally finished the documentation in a state good enough for me to 
release it.

I've been using it with Grok on the server side for more than the past 
year on several complex single-page rich client web applications. Those 
projects are mostly done now, and I'm looking to build more apps using 
Obviel. :)

The Obviel web page is here:


and I also blogged about it:


The way I use it with Grok is:

* JSON view methods in Grok

* Fanstatic to publish the thing (I still need to publically release a 
js.obviel package)

* I have a library, also not yet released, called Oven, that helps with 
Obviel form generation and also datatables (a UI component) integration. 
The datatables integration is a bit disorganized right now on the client 
side; I hope to bring it into Obviel proper soon as it's quite powerful.
