Pakyow helps you build modern applications that don't break the Web.
In his essay, The World Wide Web: A very short personal history, Tim Berners-Lee states:
The dream behind the Web is of a common information space in which we communicate by sharing information. Its universality is essential: the fact that a hypertext link can point to anything, be it personal, local or global, be it draft or highly polished.
Pakyow lets you build interactive user experiences that sit on top of a traditional, server-driven stack. Conceptually, it falls somewhere between a traditional framework (e.g. Ruby on Rails) and a more modern, client-side framework (e.g. Ember.js).
With Pakyow, code is written in Ruby and is executed on the server, where initial rendering occurs. Once a page is presented in the web browser, Pakyow keeps the presented view in sync with the latest server-side state. It does this without moving any code to the client.
Pakyow is simply a layer on top of the server-driven architecture that has powered the Web for decades, making it a natural step forward from a traditional Web framework. Pakyow is the realtime Web implemented as a progressive enhancement.
