KSS for Grok. Ajax with Style, see

Project Description


Grokkish support for KSS.

There is a tutorial.


Grok is a web application framework for Python developers. It is aimed at both beginners and very experienced web developers. Grok has an emphasis on agile development. Grok is easy and powerful.

Kinetic Style Sheets (KSS)

KSS is an Ajax framework that allows UI development without writing any Javascript. It uses style sheets with CSS-compliant syntax to declare and bind dynamic behaviors in the browser. The engine supports a set of generic DOM-like commands; they are computed on the server and sent back to manipulate the HTML page.

What is KSS?

KSS is an AJAX framework. KSS has both a client-side Javascript library and server-side support.

The client-side Javascript library needs to be included in your page. It fetches Kinetic style sheets from the server, parses them and binds a set of actions to browser events and/or page elements. It is clean Javascript code that can peacefully coexist with other clean Javascript libraries like JQuery or ExtJS. It is about 100k in production mode. You can integrate your own Javascript code by using its extension mechanism through plugins.

Server-side code is currently available for Zope (2 and 3, which includes Plone and Grok).

The Javascript client-side code can be used independently of existing server-side support. In other words, it is usable on platforms where we have not built server-side support like PHP, Ruby or Java.

More about KSS

More information and documentation can be found on the KSS project homepage.
