A new and promising web development framework has been born for Free Pascal/ Lazarus developers. It supports REST, JSON, and you can download it from here:
This is a very easy task in FreePascal/Lazarus.
The Lazarus team is glad to announce the release of:
At this important stage the current team would like to thank all the past and current people who were involved in getting us here.
* Thanks also go to the FPC team for providing the compiler that makes it all possible.
* Special thanks go to the founders of the project who started Lazarus more than a decade ago in 1999: Cliff Baeseman, Shane Miller and Michael A. Hess.
* A history of developers involved can be found in wiki History page . And a list of the many contributors comes with the distribution.
The release is available for download at the SourceForge download page:

It was developed by Darius Blaszijk, with help from me. One of the planned uses is
to create searchable documentation. I’ve also (in a private project) used it to
implement full-text search on a database that doesn’t support that natively.
Time Track is a program written in Lazarus and tiopf to allow people to track projects (with Firebird backend)
It’s a small app that sits in the tray, and can be used to manage project time.
If there is interest, I can donate it to the Lazarus community. It also serves
as a nice example of how to program Lazarus and tiOPF.
It also keeps a todo list and a list of interruptions.
(the helpdesk walks in and out of my office, which I started tracking to
prove that this practice costs me 1.5 hours a day.)

You’ll need tiOPF and a database server.
I use (and recommend) Firebird, but changing it to something
else takes about 2 lines of code.
The included time.sql file creates the database.
