Nitrogen, being a largely front-end framework, certainly sounds like it'd
be a fit.

Showing and hiding elements on the page is a matter of calling
wf:wire(#show{}) or wf:wire(#hide{}) in a postback event. You can see a
simple version of this here: http://nitrogenproject.com/demos/effects

Feel free to plunk around with it, and if you have any questions, let me


P.S. Sorry for the terseness, I'm typing on my phone.
