Dear all,

I'm currently working on comparison between three main web frameworks in
Smalltalk and here is one interesting result I measured today:

Code stats            Aida    Seaside Iliad			
Nr of packages          1      74      9
Nr of categories       14     123     26
Nr of classes         145     943    265
Nr of methods        4.465   8.758  2.368
Lines of code       33.578  66.337  9.794
Avg methods/class     31      9       9
Avg lines/method     7,5     7,6     4,1
Code is loaded in Pharo with by Metacello configurations, tests are
included, all code included except Grease, Sport, Swazoo, Magritte.

Note how small number of packages and classes has Aida comparing
specially to Seaside, but only twice less methods. Is this a reason why
everyone consider Aida as simple from first sight?

More to come.
