Kitto allows to create Rich Internet Applications based on a data model that can be mapped onto any database. The client-side part uses ExtJS (through the ExtPascal library) to create a fully AJAX application, allowing you to build standard and advanced data-manipulating forms in a fraction of the time.

Kitto is aimed at Delphi developers that need to create web application without delving into the intricacies of HTML, CSS, Javascript or learning to use a particular library such as ExtJS, yet it allows access to the bare metal if required.

Kitto includes a database-agnostic data-access layer, allowing to create applications that work on any database engine and port applications between database engines.

A Kitto application is described in a set of easily maintained YAML files, keeping definitions abstract and declarative and allowing for future extensions. Business rules are enforced either declaratively or through small javascript fragments on the client, or in Delphi code on the server.

Kitto was designed by Nando Dessena and its development is sponsored by Ethea, which uses Kitto for internal development projects and client work and provides Kitto-related tools, support and development services.

The getting started guide can be tested with Firebird and Delphi
