Yes, that's why I mentioned nodejs. A rather cool JavaScript project 
didn't do quite what I wanted, but to modify it I had to install some 
nodejs environment that was used to "build" the JavaScript and had to be 
re-run for any tweak to the components and always built a rather large 
JavaScript file even minified.

I ended up just scrapping it any writing my own even though its not as 
flexible, and I'm still trying to figure out how requiring a node setup 
is a good idea to require for generating a static file.

But that's the trend.
