Mithril is the latest entry to the category and boasts speed, built-in safetey, and robustness as its core features. Weighing in at ~400 LOC, it’s amazing how much functionality Leo Horie has squeezed in to his little framework.
There’s something to be said about being able to write a lean, mean web application and serve a ton of requests without huge hardware requirements. Go just had its fourth birthday, and finding a lot of popularity as a systems/operations language. Special thanks to Matt Silverlock for contributing this post.
Now, ZURB is at it again with Foundation 4.0 and this is what’s new.
We’ve retooled Foundation from the ground up to be Mobile First. This is no hack job; we didn’t just flip some media queries and call it a day. We went through the framework and rethought how grids should work, how components should work in a mobile-first paradigm, so we could be sure the solution we deliver in Foundation 4 is smart and sturdy.
We’ve built Sass mixins and extensions for almost every component of Foundation. Now you can write whatever markup is most semantic, most representative of what your content really is. Then, simply attach Foundation components to it in your Sass.
With Foundation 4, we wanted to make sure that not only were our Orbit, Reveal, Joyride, Clearing and Magellan plugins the best they could possibly be, but also that we were setting Foundation up for even greater plugins in the future. So, we rewrote them all.
We’re also using Zepto.js, a jQuery API compatible library. This dramatically reduces how much your users will need to load (especially on mobile devices) and provides the added benefit of using CSS for animations, taking advantage of hardware acceleration where possible.
For those that thought C had been delegated to the internals of your
mobile devices or favorite database engine, Daniel

Raphters is a web framework written in C. Yes you heard that right, a

Kohana is a PHP MVC web framework that aims to be easy, lightweight, and secure. It has no dependencies on PECL or PEAR extensions and uses strict PHP 5 OOP. It uses what it calls “cascading resources” to allow developers to extend the framework without editing the core system.
In most cases a developer could simply replace a supported client-side framework with FuseJS + emulation layer and receive instant performance and stability gains while continuing to use the framework API they are familiar with.
