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.
PicoGUI aims to be a complete GUI environment for handheld computers and other embedded systems. It uses a client/server model, like the X window system, but while an X server is given raw drawing commands, the PicoGUI server integrates a widget set, making PicoGUI clients small and efficient. PicoGUI also has the goal of allowing client/server connections over a variety of mechanisms. It is most commonly used with Linux, but is designed to be portable to any OS. PicoGUI has a variety of video and input drivers which allow it to interface with the Linux framebuffer device, SDL, the X window system, and several other devices.
The Open Robot Control Software (OROCOS) framework provides the tools to build real-time software components in C++, designed for robot and machine control. The Orocos Real-Time Toolkit provides an infrastructure to quickly setup applications in a real-time operating system such as RTAI and Xenomai, although it can be tested on normal Linux systems. It is designed to appeal to roboticists.
Zild is a C application server with support for the common servlet technology and servlet API in C. It includes support for ServerPages, PHP, XML SAX parser, HTTP/1.1 and SSL/TLS connectors, HTML form-based and Basic Authentication access controls, a built-in embedded SQL database, and many more functions.
The XView4Struts project is an extension to the Jakarta Struts Framework. Its main purpose is to eliminate the need to use tag libraries and JSP pages. The view is pure HTML, and interaction between the view and the model is transparent to the developer. This approach offers faster development, better division of work, a more pure MVC design pattern, reusable view components, and easier maintenance.
Cymbeline is an Python application server framework that includes functionality such as database and arbitrary object pooling, Web servers (including SSL), a persistent object repository, and a text console. It was originally designed as an administrative shell for an embedded system, but has since morphed into a more general purpose, run anywhere toolkit.
Wt is a C++ library for developing Web applications with an API that is widget-centric and inspired by existing C++ graphical user interface APIs. To the developer, it offers abstraction of Web-specific implementation details, increasing the accessibility and portability. Under the hood, the library uses the latest techniques (HTML5, Ajax, WebSockets) to handle user events and update the Web page.
Joshua is a chess robot. It is a stepper motor robot that interfaces with a photosensible board and a computer to play chess with an embedded artificail intelligence, a game database, or a player on the Internet. The package includes software, robot photos, technical papers, schematics, and cabling instructions.
QP is a family of lightweight software frameworks for building responsive and modular real-time embedded applications as systems of cooperating, event-driven active objects (actors). The QP family consists of QP/C, QP/C++, and QP-nano frameworks, which are all strictly quality controlled, superbly documented, and commercially licensable. The behavior of active objects is specified in QP by means of hierarchical state machines (UML statecharts). The frameworks support manual coding of UML state machines in C or C++ as well as automatic code generation by means of the free QM modeling tool. All QP frameworks can run on bare-metal MCUs, completely replacing a traditional RTOS. Ports and ready-to-use examples are provided for all major CPUs, such as ARM Cortex-M, ARM7/9, MSP430, C28x, C55x, RX, R8C, AVR32, AVRMega, PIC24/dsPIC, as well as Arduino and mbed. QP/C and QP/C++ can also work with a traditional OS/RTOS, such as: POSIX (Linux, QNX), Windows, VxWorks, ThreadX, and uC/OS.
