Lavaca is a full-featured HTML5 application framework dedicated to building web applications fast and easily. Lavaca unlike some other application frameworks, comes with a full-build system, with in-built configurations for different environments.

Along with the build system is packaged an HTML, CSS and JavaScript packaging and minification system, a JavaScript documentation generation tool, a unit testing framework and several common JavaScript libraries.  You will also find bundled in, a JavaScript MVC framework which will help you structure your JavaScript code.

You will also have a JavaScript templating engine which goes along with the JavaScript MVC framework and the other libraries.

Lavaca provides you with a CSS reset, a translation framework, a set of CSS3 helpers, along with a set of PhoneGap helpers as well. Lavaca has ensured that all these different components work together properly, hence providing you with a cohesive package.

Despite all these features, Lavaca is still lightweight for an application framework. Lavaca also has extensibility built-in, allowing you to extend the framework as you wish to. Finally, Lavaca is a modular application framework, which means that you can remove modules you will not be using, keeping the core lightweight for your application.
