ManifoldJS aims to make the life of a mobile developer easier than ever, by utilizing Web App Manifests, which allow websites to declare app-like properties.

VorlonJS is an open source, extensible, platform-agnostic tool for remotely debugging and testing your JavaScript. Powered by node.js and socket.io. It is easy to set up, works on any platform, and extensible.
