DirectFB is a thin library that provides developers with hardware graphics acceleration, input device handling and abstraction, an integrated windowing system with support for translucent windows and multiple display layers on top of the Linux framebuffer device. It is a complete hardware abstraction layer with software fallbacks for every graphics operation that is not supported by the underlying hardware.

Papyrus is a 2D C++ scenegraph (canvas) library that utilizes the cairo library to perform drawing operations. Similar canvas libraries are the Gnome Canvas, Diacanvas, and the QT Canvas. Numerous canvas primitives are available, including arcs, rectangles, polylines, and line markers. An optional companion library, Papyrusmm, provides a set of Gtkmm widgets which includes viewports (a canvas display widget similar to Gtk::DrawingArea) and other UI widgets related to drawing interfaces.

EZFB is a polymorphic, object oriented Linux frame buffer API written in C, designed to adapt at run time to control any properly configured Linux frame buffer video system. It offers independent, simultaneous control of multiple video cards within a single system, exceptional control of colors, the ability to display all or portions of bitmap files anywhere on the screen, automatic color depth conversion, the ability to capture to bitmap files, an 8x8 bitmapped font, routines to draw points, lines, outlined and filled rectangles, signal trapping for automatic screen clean-up at process termination, and much more. The demonstration applications include a bitmap viewer, screen capture utility, screen saver, and a touch screen calibration utility and an application for generating, viewing, transforming, and saving files according to The International Laser Display Association's ILDA file format.

Strasheela is a highly expressive constraint-based music composition system. Users declaratively state a music theory and the computer generates music which complies with this theory. A theory is formulated as a constraint satisfaction problem (CSP) by a set of rules (constraints) applied to a music representation in which some aspects are expressed by variables (unknowns). Music constraint programming is style-independent and is well-suited for highly complex theories (e.g. a fully-fledged theory of harmony). Results can be output into various formats including MIDI, Lilypond, and Csound.

FrAid (Fr[actal] Aid) is a programming language that is appropriate for mathematical computations, visualization, batch processing, and more. It features both a standalone application that provides a programming environment for the language and a system for integrating the language with Java. The Java interface allows mathematical equations and formulas to be used with Java code, making it easier to process numerical computations, symbolic computations, imaging, CAD, and more.

Time Based Text allows the user to include more information in written text by saving the time delta between keystrokes and offering a way to reproduce it exactly how it has been written. It offers a protocol and reference implementation that is easily embeddable in applications using text-based human communication. The idea behind it is that email systems as well poetry and literature may benefit from a time-based approach to text. It comes with a portable C++ reference implementation to generate TBT messages and save them in HTML and DokuWiki (JSON), a Website to upload and exchange TBT poetry, plus various advanced TBT implementations in Javascript, Python, and Perl.

Shoebot is a pure Python graphics robot: it takes a Python script as input, which describes a drawing process, and outputs a graphic in a common open standard format (SVG, PDF, PostScript, or PNG). It has a simple text editor GUI, and scripts can describe their own GUIs for controlling variables interactively. Being pure Python, it can also be used as a Python module, a plugin for Python-scriptable tools such as Inkscape, and run from the command line. It was directly inspired by DrawBot and Shoes. Thus, "Shoebot."
