The most promising new web frameworks / technologies?

What are the technologies that are new, young, just starting to spread in web development? What are new coming "winners"? Especially in python / javascript world

For me - fullstack dev - it has been celluloid: https://github.com/celluloid/celluloid

I had to move most of our apis/background-jobs to node after getting fed up with the concurrency issues that ruby had. This fixes that. Although I don't think it can compare with node/eventmachine on the performance front. But that's ok IMO in most situations.

I am thinking about moving most of our api/background tasks to ruby from node, and using node only for cases that require some sort of proxying - for example proxying an request to a private elasticsearch server after authenticating.

There's a pretty good list here


I'm sure the winners will depend on your needs. Do you need a full stack or not?

For me, it's either Django or Flask for Python depending on how much of a framework I want to start with. Both are mature projects in active development with a wide user base for assistance.

Right now I'm sort of in the Java world so Play! is my framework of choice.

I'm aware of both django and flask, although flask I havent used. But I was thinking of new, emergent technologies (not necessarily full-stack web frameworks like django), libraries, trends.

Django is already well established, and so is flask.

In the java world, Play Framework looks real promising. Writing web apps in Java or Scala or even a mix of both is a win to me.

Webmachine (https://github.com/basho/webmachine) has a very nice, declarative approach (Erlang). It was ported to node.js, but hasn't been updated in a while, unfortunately.

If that sort of thing floats your boat, you should check out Yesod as well (Haskell).

I've been rather intrigued with the idea of API-first development, building a services oriented backend while moving most of the business logic onto the client-side.

Therefore, front end frameworks like Ember, Backbone and Angular are what I hope to see spread in web development.
