Camping is a web application microframework written in Ruby which
consistently stays under 4 KB - the complete source code can be viewed
on a single A4 sheet.

It was created and updated by _why until version 1.5. Around that time
Why's focus shifted towards Hackety Hack and related project Shoes. _why
provided Judofyr (a major contributor) with admin access on and other sites. Judofyr took over as de facto head of the
project.[1] Since then Camping has been a community driven framework
with contributions from many people and a small but helpful community.
While Judofyr is sometimes seen as a leader, he's insisted camping be
governed by consensus on the very active mailing list. Why's eventual
departure solidified the project as being communally run, and is notable
for being one of the few former why the lucky stiff projects to be taken
over by the community before why's disappearance. Current editions of
Camping are available from GitHub and are distributed as a RubyGem.

Camping stores a complete fledgling web application in a single file,
like a bundle of many small CGI scripts, but organizes it as a
model–view–controller application as Ruby on Rails does. Camping
applications can stand alone, meet niche requirements as 'the small
wheels' that serve larger setups, or easily be ported to Rails.
