I just wrote a new README file for my current project, Bender. Here's a quick intro:

Bender is a declarative framework to build web applications and reusable components. The goal of Bender is to make authoring Web applications easier through better and higher level abstractions, and being itself a foundation for more powerful authoring tools.

The Bender framework consists of:

  1. a markup language based on XML for application and component description;
  2. Javascript support libraries;
  3. runtimes for different Web browsers and SVG players.

The README file goes into some details, and will be expanded shortly into a fuller documentation. I will also show some more examples here very soon.
