Experience

    http://voltframework.com/

    Volt is a framework for building data-rich web applications shockingly fast.

    Volt is a reactive web framework where your Ruby code runs both on the server and the client (via Opal). The DOM automatically updates as the user interacts with the page—intelligently updating only the nodes that need to be changed. The data can easily be stored on the page, in a cookie, or in a database.
