Evaluation, 20100901

A very brief assessment of all web frameworks listed in cliki was carried out in September 2010. This assessment comprised: check websites, download source if available, attempt to compile, review documentation.

The review found that CoreServer had an easy to use installer, always encouraging. Documentation on the web was good. Worth investigating further.
