Subject Re: If your evaluating new template engines, what about ZipScript
Date Fri, 01 Aug 2008 10:20:23 GMT
For me, it's the "real world apps", *plus* the interest in porting GXP
to other platforms, like C++, and Ruby. Personally, I'd like to add C#
to that list. ASPX, like JSF, has its charms, but many .NET developers
(including me) would like alternatives.

I do find the zipscript YUI examples interesting, since we are also
looking for an alternative approach to supporting Ajax with the Struts
