isomorphic projection framework

Isomorphism is commonly known as the thought of using the same code on both the client and the server side. Since node.js this has been accomplished in a small scale, but never in a big scale. Many have tried and usually they succeed in a limited way. However issues with SEO and clients without JavaScript seams to constantly show up. For half a year I have tried to come up with a new design for isomorphism. This is my attempt to reinvent isomorphism and the thought itself. The issues we are facing are because we forget the isomorphism, in our eager to just develop something. I hope this project will result in something significant different.

Note when I speak about other people; I'm just as much speaking about myself!

Example

A primitive but very enlightning example can be found at: /AndreasMadsen/piccolo-example.

The future

Piccolo is highly experimental but is a working framework since f666964fce. However there is a long way to go before it becomes mainstrem for most developers and useful in a production environment.

The plan is that piccolo 0.7.0 will be an useful framework with a understandable API, documentation, examples and works across all used browser and 1.0.0 will be a proction ready platform with a well defined API.

The todo list exists as a collection of issues, but you are welcome to open your own requests issues. Any discussion about isomorphism itself should be on #piccolo (freenodes) or some other channel.
