Velocity is a Java-based template engine. It permits anyone to use the simple yet powerful template language to reference objects defined in Java code. When Velocity is used for Web development, Web designers can work in parallel with Java programmers to develop Web sites according to the Model-View-Controller (MVC) model, meaning that Web page designers can focus solely on creating a site that looks good, and programmers can focus solely on writing top-notch code. Velocity separates Java code from the Web pages, making the web site more maintainable over the long run and providing a viable alternative to Java Server Pages (JSPs) or PHP. Velocity also provides template services for the Turbine Web application framework, making a template service that allows Web applications to be developed according to a true MVC model.
Archetypes is a framework for developing new content types in Plone. The power of Archetypes is first in automatically generating forms, second in providing a library of stock field types, form widgets, and field validators, third in easily integrating custom fields, widgets, and validators, and fourth in automating transformations of rich content.
CGI::Application::Generator provides a means by which a CGI::Application-based module can be created from code, as opposed to being written by hand. This module is intended to create the shell of an application module, based on the specification you provide. It will not output a completely functional application without additional coding. It will, however, create the structural parts of your application common to all CGI::Application-based modules. This module is intended to ease the creation of new CGI::Application modules and to encourage standardization of CGI::Application coding styles.
CSS Briefcase is a little program that helps you organize your CSS styles and store them for use in future projects. Just add CSS style code you tend to use in several projects, and from then on, adding the code into new projects is as easy as selecting the styles you want and clicking a button.
Cameleon a Framework for developing reliable database applications in a technology independent and predominantly editorial way. User interfaces may be easily exchanged from Swing to HTML and vice versa, and databases may be exchanged in the same manner. The Swing variant framework is established. The HTML user interface is under construction but can be reviewed on the project Webpage ("Test sample application"). Cameleon's target users are programmers who manage midrange data volumes (from thousands to millions of database records) and who prefer simplicity and availability rather than animation. Business features such as security management and parameter administration are supported in the framework. The framework allows web developement without any knowledge of JSP, HTML, Servlets etc. Data input elements (and groups of them) may be used in Java Server Pages.
Cheetah is a Python-powered template engine and code generator. It can be used as a standalone utility or it can be combined with other tools. Web developers are its principle user group, but it has many potential uses and is also being used to generate C++ game code, Java, SQL, form emails, and even Python code.
CodeWorker is a versatile parsing tool and a universal source code generator. It interprets a scripting language for producing reusable, tailor-made, evolving, and reliable IT systems with a high level of automation. The file formats to parse are described in an extended-BNF syntax. Template-based scripts drive the writing of patterns for generating code or text. The code generation knows how to preserve protected areas with hand-typed code and provides code expansion, source-to-source translation, and program transformation. It provides a native translation of CodeWorker's scripts in C++.
Dexter is a tool that allows users to define extended attributes which can be associated with descriptors and editors. These attributes can be embedded into any well-formed XML document. The resulting embellished document, the 'source', is then input to the dexter engine. This will generate one or more XSLT stylesheets describing the input document interpolating editor modifications and any instructions specified by the descriptors. As dexter's operations are specified exclusively with extended attributes, all but the most unforgiving of XML content viewers will continue to see the decorated source exactly as the designer saw it before.
Dynamator solves the server pages maintenance problem by completely separating HTML from server code for any technology. It merges pure, standard HTML with server code stored in separate XML files to produce standard server pages in technologies like JSP, XSL, PHP, and Java. Benefits include a more agile HTML UI, a streamlined internationalization and customization processes, easier reuse, and more efficient code.
