Is Nitro a supported project at this time?
I don't mean to be impatient. I do understand that there is a
tremendous amount of work involved in launching a project like this.
I am extremely impressed by the design goals for Nitro. I have worked
for a long time doing framework development and Nitro is pretty close
to the Holy Grail. I think it has addressed some of the key problems
with Rails and could ultimately be very successful.
I am building a portal framework, which is currently implemented in
PHP. I began migrating it to Rails but got very frustrated with its
lack of modularity in the underlying design. And then I discovered
Nitro, sort of by accident (I was curious about Og after having seen
the article on RubyGarden).
What I can offer:
- I am building a portal framework, which will result in a number of
open source-able components that could enhance the attractiveness of
Nitro. Already I have built a component library that would offer yet
another templating model for Nitro. I have tried to integrate into
Rails but it hasn't been easy, with all those instance variables being
passed around. =)
- I am a knowledgeable early adopter, highly motivated to make Nitro
work for me because I understand the importance of what you are trying
to do, and why it is distinct from Rails.
- This is a for profit project, which means I may be able to make some
donations to the project financially. I don't want to overstate this
because I don't know at this point how profitable this venture will be,
but I am willing to support the folks that make my life easier.
Please let me know what the intentions of the Nitro team are: am I too
early? Is it too soon to have a relative new-comer to Ruby start using
