Dabo <http://dabodev.com/> is probably the closest you'll get. I haven't 
tried it seriously, mostly because of the poor documentation, but they 
had a quite an active and helpful mailing list at the time I looked 
into it about half a year ago.

Personally, I prefer plain old PHP. If you know something about HTML 
forms, you can churn out a Web interface with it in no time. The 
downside is of course the inherent statelessness of the http protocol.
