Padrino, The Elegant Ruby Web Framework

With the Sinatra's light clean syntax, many web developers have delighted in its its unencumbered approach. However, there is often a need for something a more than what Sinatra provides. Enter Padrino. It aims to offer a set of standard tools usable within Sinatra, which can be picked to exactly suit your requirements. With Padrino, you can currently pick and choose from the following modules:

Generators: Create applications, models, controllers
Routing: URL named routes, named params
Tag & Asset Helpers: Easy to add tags, css, and javascript
Form Helpers: Creation of forms for models
Mailer: Simple delivery support for sending emails
Admin: Built-in admin interface (akin to Django)
Localization: Full support for I18n
Caching: Support for fragment & page caching with a variety of backing stores

This talk will provide a whirlwind tour of these features. We will also compare the speed and memory usage of Padrino vs other frameworks. Have it your own way!
