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 rubyforge.org and other sites. Judofyr took over as de facto head of the project. 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. Contents [show] Overview 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. _______________________________________________ Camping-list mailing list Campingemail@example.com http://rubyforge.org/mailman/listinfo/camping-list
