XMLProperties is a utility class which stores and retrieves property lists (key-value/s pairs) from an XML document. It is in a way similar to the java.util.Properties file but with one main difference: it can store more than one property value for a given property key. Each property key corresponds to an XMLPropertyValues object which may contain one or more property values.
The adventure PHP framework (APF) is a utility to implement object oriented and generic PHP Web applications. It allows the developer to create programs in compliance with approved software design patterns, and the code base already has answers to many everyday problems. The framework cannot be described as an application that only has to be configured, but rather as a technical basis and design guide for the design of software. Further, it introduced many concepts and efficiency tools already well known in the Java community.
Ell is a library to write EBNF grammars as C++ code for quick development of LL(n) parsers or similar applications. It is not a tool to generate parsers (like ANTLR): the grammar you write is directly embedded into your C++ code. The core library is very light (less than 2000 lines of headers) and written in generation templates to achieve the fastest execution. The service provided by Ell is very similar to what Boost Spirit provides, but with a simpler object model, and without the need of the Boost library (it only depends on STL).
PHPTAL is a fast, safe, XML-based template engine for XHTML and HTML5. It implements Zope's Template Attribute Language, which has clean, concise syntax that is compatible with XML tools (no custom ugly tags), and template source files can even be previewed in Web browsers or opened in WYSIWYG editors. Templates are compiled to PHP and cached, giving great performance and taking advantage of PHP accelerators. PHPTAL by default ensures well-formed output and escapes XML-unsafe characters everywhere, which means that your pages can be completely safe against HTML-injection (XSS) without great effort. It features fine-grained caching of output, pre- and post- filters, internationalization via gettext or custom backend, creation of custom template attributes and expressions, and templates loaded from non-standard sources (e.g. databases). It supports UTF-8 well, is easy to integrate and redistribute with PHP frameworks and applications, and has an object-oriented design and a comprehensive unit test suite.
