What is Kettle?

Kettle is a framework for building server-side Web applications using JavaScript and Node.js. Originally created by the Fluid community for the Fluid Engage mobile application, Kettle is designed to provide a quick and easy way to deliver data feeds and rendered markup on the server. Kettle uses Fluid Infusion throughout, offering client-side JavaScript developers a natural starting point for building server-side code. Because it is written in JavaScript, Kettle provides the opportunity to share code between client and server seamlessly. As a result, the architectural partitioning of responsibilities between client and server can be defined and reconfigured based on the requirements of the application, not based on programming language boundaries.
