Bug#473096: ITP: witty -- C++ web framework and application server

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Pau Garcia i Quiles <pgquiles@elpauer.org>

* Package name    : witty
  Version         : 2.1.0
  Upstream Author : EmWeb bvba

  Description     : C++ web framework and application server

Wt (pronounced 'witty') is a C++ library and application server for developing and deploying web applications.

The API is widget-centric, and inspired by existing C++ GUI APIs (namely, by Qt). To the developer, it offers complete abstraction of any web-specific implementation details.

A web application developed with Wt is written in only one compiled language (C++), from which the library generates the necessary HTML, Javascript, CGI, and AJAX code. Wt applications degrade gracefully, using plain HTML/CGI when Javascript is disabled or not available.

Web applications can be compiled as a standalone executable which embeds an HTTP server or as a FastCGI module to use with any HTTP server which supports it (such as Apache, Lighttpd, IIS, etc).
