Thanks Oleg, somehow it slipped my mind to check for such a beast on RubyForge. I knew about Powerset but did not know there was an open source version of their clustering system, which is good to hear.

Just out of curiosity what in particular don't you like about Rails? Personally I find some of its conventions, required for everything to work just peachy, are objectionable, but it's great for going from zero to prototype and incorporating Ajax in the demo with little or no manual effort.

I like Erlyweb except for its attempt to too-closely imitate Rails. It feels rather un-Erlang and also-ran to me in this respect. Some of the code gen stuff it does is quite spiffy though and helped me to appreciate dynamic programming in Erlang more.

V lubom sluchi, spasibo za informatsiu. :)

I'm no rails fan myself, but check out this ->, it is a yaws-based frontend for rails, a
opensource fork of the clustering system used at Powerset (y'know, a
search engine recently bought by microsoft for $100M).
