gossamer 0.1

Gossamer is a web framework that emphasizes the use of distributed, independent resources. With Gossamer, you construct websites out of a network of lightweight objects that manage particular resources. Resources can utilize other resources through fault-tolerant, loosely coupled RESTful[] communications. Resource brokers manage the resource objects, storing them in a distributed cache (eg, <tt>memcache</tt>). Resources can easily serve their content in multiple formats, such as HTML, Atom, and RDF. Gossamer is intended to be a useful platform for aggregators, mashups, web services, implementing the semantic web, and other applications that depend on external network resources rather than internal databases.
