It's not really about a lightweight implementation in terms of code, but Enyo does have some interesting aspects. You deal with enyo controls not html controls, you lay components out horizontally and vertically with ratios not percents or pixels and it does some clever stuff with lists that means a list can have hundreds of entries but only a screenful and a bit are in the dom at any point, which can make it pretty snappy on lower end hardware.
