paperjs. frederickkPaper folio.jsUpdate: Over the course of the past few months, I've settled on the name folio.js, which is much better than frederickkPaper. The name change has been reflected in this post, however some of the usage methods mentioned in this post are inaccurate, please refer to the github page https://github.com/frederickk/folio.js for the most up-to-date information. Over the past couple of years, I've assembled a library of functions for Scriptographer, and given the recent news, I began porting this rag-tag-collection into a slightly tighter library and framework for web development. I'm calling it folio.js, mainly because at the moment I'm focusing on paperjs, in the future I'd like to try and make it more generic for use with other web based creative tools (processingjs, et. al.). In addition to the Scriptographer specfic functions, I've also ported some of the more useful features from my Processing library Frederickk. paperjs. frederickkPaper

More Productive Out of the Box. Write dramatically less code with Ember's Handlebars integrated templates that update automatically when the underlying data changes. Don't waste time making trivial choices. Ember.js incorporates common idioms so you can focus on what makes your app special, not reinventing the wheel.
From Java to Node.js « n0tw0rthy I’ve been developing for quite a while and in quite a few languages. Somehow though, I’ve always seemed to fall back to Java when doing my own stuff – maybe partly from habit, partly because it has in my opinion the best open source selection out there, and party because I liked its mix of features and performance. Specifically though, in the web arena things have been moving fast and furious with new languages, approaches, and methods like RoR, Play!, and Lift (and many others!). While I “get it” regarding the benefits of these frameworks, I never felt the need to give them more than an initial deep dive to see how they work. I nod a few times at their similarities and move on back to plain REST-ful services in Java with Spring, maybe an ORM (i try to avoid them these days), and a JS-rich front-end.
