GNUstep is a cross-platform, object oriented environment composed of frameworks, tools, and servers (daemons). It is very similar to the Cocoa frameworks from Apple, and tries to maintain compatibility with Cocoa wherever it is desired and possible. The frameworks provide classes for containers, distributed objects, object archiving, file management, text system, font management, image composition, WYSIWYG PostScript graphics, and more.
Gorm (Graphic Object Relationship Modeller) is a GNUstep application for building user interfaces and application objects relationships. Its major features include drag-and-drop creation of GUI elements from palettes, run-time loading of additional palettes, direct on-screen manipulation of GUI elements, manipulation and examination of objects via inspectors, and creation of connections between objects using mouse. It is a clone of the former NeXTstep (currently OS X) "Interface Builder" application.
Addresses is a GNUstep address book that consists of a full-featured address book manager application, a source-code compatible replacement for Apple's AddressBook.framework (for accessing and manipulating address data programmatically), a framework of view/editor classes that make it easy to use Addresses from your own programs, and a number of tools. It is easy to use by both users and programmers and can store almost all imaginable data, including multiple phone numbers, emails, and addresses, photos, AIM/Jabber/ICQ/Yahoo IM details, and notes. It supports drag-and-drop and integrates well with GNUMail.
SMS Framework is an Objective C framework for decoding SMS messages in PDU format to objects. It is easily usable in Cocoa and GNUstep environments, and it reduces developer responsibility for decoding messages to extracting the raw messages from the phone. The XCode project file contains three targets: one system wide framework, one framework to include in applications, and a small application for testing the framework.
DevelKit Framework is an GNUstep/Cocoa framework with tools for reading, understanding, and generating source code from other applications. Its goal is to allow applications to generate code from non-textual representation, such as diagrams or other kinds of descriptions. Example features: an ObjectiveC source reader and generator, a project builder class, source structure related classes (class, method, and instance variables), templates, a tool for automatically generating accessor (getter ad setter), dealloc and archiving methods (interface and implementation) for a given class, and more.
