DogPerl is an offline Perl/Tk widget documentation resource. It includes an adjustable interface. Since it is a reference to detailed information about Tk widgets as they can be used in Perl, the program does not do much. It is an encyclopedia for Tk within Perl. However, font color, size, face, and style can be customized easily. Page background color, border size, and paragraph spacing are also customizable. The program illustrates the use of Perl/Tk.
process-getopt is a wrapper around getopt(1) for bash that allows a developer to define command line options with their descriptions through a single function call. These definitions are then used in runtime processing of command line options as well as in generating help and man pages. This results in more internal consistency in bash scripts, particularly when they are maintained and changed later. It also saves a little time in coding and producing nicely formatted documentation. It is quite similar to GNU's argp in glibc for compiled languages. Samples and a manual are included.
StoryTestIQ (a.k.a. "STIQ") is a tool for creating "Executable Requirements", which have also been known as acceptance tests or functional tests. STIQ was developed based on two other open source acceptance testing tools, Selenium and FitNesse. This combination allowed StoryTestIQ to capture the Web browser based testing facilities and elegant command language of Selenium along with the wiki based editing and pluggable Fit fixture loading of FitNesse.
wyoGuide is a tutorial, a collection of guidelines for building cross-platform applications with a well-designed, consistent look and feel. It gives ideas and advice on how an application and its GUI could and should be written. Development with these guidelines gives the GUI of an application a standard set of base functionality. wyoGuide also provides sample code for each guideline written in C++ using the wxWidgets (formerly wxWindows) framework. For a seasoned developer it shouldn't be difficult to adapt these guidelines to other languages or frameworks.
ReadySET is a project to produce and maintain a library of reusable software engineering document templates. These templates provide a ready starting point for the documents used in software development projects. Using good templates can help developers work more quickly, and they help prompt discussion and avoid oversights. Key features include: high-quality outlines, sample text, and checklists, use of simple Web technologies (pure XHTML and CSS), and templates for many common software engineering documents.
Light-Weight Visual Components Library (LwVCL) is a powerful, small, fast, efficient, framework of visual components that provides a rich set of customizable, flexible user interface components. There are versions for J2SE/J2ME Personal Profile, J2ME MIDP, .NET, and SWT. This provides a unified GUI framework for different platforms that provides the same API, the same concepts, and the same look and feel.
