As JVM developers we've been lucky to have the holy Grails available for our web application needs. While Grails is the right tool for so many jobs, sometimes you need to scratch an itch with something a little lighter and more trimmed down. Enter Ratpack!

It's a web toolkit inspired by Ruby's Sinatra but distinctively JVM. It builds on great foundations such as Netty and Guice while leveraging Gradle and Groovy to make things dead simple.
