Web Frameworks in the Javascript / REST world

Now more and more Web architectures are using Javascript / Ajax / JQuery to enrich their presentations. Many of them are making direct REST calls using JSON to send over oor just getting JSON
back to display.

What web frameworks are build with these technologies in mind? Most web frameworks such as Struts / JSF are more Web 1.0. I know JSF has some support for AJAX out of the box.

Just wondering what people's opinions on this are?

GWT (which I dislike with a passion) is one example that makes heavy use of JavaScript.

You can include Grails, Sinatra (Ruby) and Flask (Python).
Sinatra and Flask aren't build with JavaScript in mind, both are micro web frameworks that support REST via DSL. Really neat.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
