why the lucky stiff is at it again with his great stuff. This time he has produced a microframework called Camping in the spirit and feel of Rails, but clocking in at just 4kb! Sure, it won’t do what most people need most of the time. But often, there’s good value in doing a bit of what a few people need occasionally.
