Yes, SmalltalkHub has a HTML5 frontend written in Amber that uses REST 
calls with a backend written in Pharo with Seaside-REST handling the 
REST calls from the client side.

Now... I wouldn't want to pitch one better than the other for *Squeak*, 
I mean - sure, SmalltalkHub is written in Pharo (backend) but S3 is 
written in GLASS, or? So neither is fully Squeak centric :)

In the end we need to cope with multiple sources and make sure our front 
end tools can deal with that as gracefully as possible. At the moment 
they really don't IMHO.
