Mavo - A new, approachable way to create Web applications
Developed in the Haystack Group at MIT CSAIL and led by Lea Verou.
While reading Slingcode - Personal computing platform in a single HTML file thread launched by @atrilahiji , I thought about Mavo and the experimental development I did for Sandstorm.
I implemented a storage backend and added some stufs, like code éditing, multi pages with shared header and footer, and Sandstorm roles integration. It's writing with GO and you can test it outside Sandstorm.
The same way, with some help, I can adapt it to Cloudron to develop a generic app to create web apps "à la carte".
However, some problems need to be resolved with authentication and management of code and data publishing rights. Sandstorm's integration is fairly intuitive and simple with inherit user permissions and grains sharing.

@jeau and horribly out of date. (sandstorm)
@robi probably you're right, but I still use Sandstorm from time to time for my teams and projects and I always find the features of Sandstorm interesting. Some guys are continuing the development slowly but a lot of applications are really outdated.
@jeau Oh I know the people who started it. The
ocapfeatures are what really attracted me to it, but once installed it was a big turnoff and disappointment.
After that I found Cloudron and never looked back.
What features do you find most interesting and usable?
This also bring up a few other thoughts, such as going through their app store and seeing what is useful to bring here. (Neos.io?)
Another thought is to make Sandstorm available as a container App within Cloudron.
There is also opportunity to learn from their architecture and implementation and enhance our own. (Borgify)
Some interesting things on their Github too:
