The "new" framework is probably much more of a mosaic than a flow (or flowchart). Not certain how well the neighbors (parts of the mosaic) know each other. Probably some zoning laws, but everyone is able to do their own thing (except after midnight) so long as certain ordinances are not broken.
My other thought is that these new apps are much like a room full of people. Conversations between a few people are great. Lectures work. But getting a room to act together requires something like Roberts Rules of Order.
Writing internet code is certainly has a long way to go.
I wanted to expand on that post and comment about the New Framework. I think there are several influences shaping its development.
- Async. The first big push was Ajax. The latest is node.js. Data no longer has a flow or a sequence, it is more quantum. REST is the structure for async.
- Speed. Look at the popularity of Steve Souders and Nicholas Zakas talks and books on speed. I hope the new framework fits the techniques they and others are discussing. For example, fewer requests doesn't always play well with frameworks that generate lots of directories and files.
- Events. Even a small app has a population of events. The new framework must provide a logical structure to these events.
- CSS, HTML and JS. Most of us work with all three. For example, what use to be in JS is now often in HTML5. The new framework will have to consider all three.
- History. Presenters are going back and looking at the development of other technologies and looking for good patterns. Douglas Crockford was looking at the transition from manuscripts to books in his talk at CapitolJS. This search is common for any new technology. Marshall McLuhan showed that a new technology retrieves an older technology. It will be interesting to see what is retrieved by the new framework.
- Testing. Of course.
You can probably argue that there are other forces at work here. For example, I could argue pro and cons of templating.
I'm sure someone is working on the new framework right now, it is "just now well distributed" yet.
