Tonic is an open source less is more, RESTful Web application development PHP library designed to do things "the right way", where resources are king and the library gets out of the way and leaves the developer to get on with it.

- Take small steps.
- Give people the room they need.
- Mechanisms--build that ticking clock
Fabric looks, on the surface at least (or for those who've only spent a short while with either), a lot like Capistrano. You have a fabfile (as oppose to a capfile) in you project directory, and that file describes all of your deployment tasks (or commands, in Fabric speak).

CSS sprites are a way to reduce the number of HTTP requests made for image resources referenced by your site. Images are combined into one larger image at defined X and Y coorindates. Having assigned this generated image to relevant page elements the background-position CSS property can then used to shift the visible area to the required component image.
another way to save precious HTTP hits from your page
