KaiView is a GUI toolkit/framework for writing applications using the TOM programming language. Based on a vector-oriented drawing layer using libart and freetype2, it provides a widget layer with subject/view separation, forms loaded from XML files, live updates to the GUI, Unicode support, abstract manipulator classes, antialiased everything, and a lot more.
SANE stands for "Scanner Access Now Easy" and is an application programming interface (API) that provides standardized access to any raster image scanner hardware (flatbed scanner, handheld scanner, video and still cameras, framegrabbers, etc.). The SANE standard is public domain and its discussion and development are open to everybody. The source code is written for UNIX (including Linux) and is available under the GPL, but commercial applications and backends are welcome. The package contains the libraries, net support, and scanimage. The X frontends xscanimage and xcam can be found in sane-frontends.
JGraph is a free, mature, and robust Java diagramming library. It contains all the graph visualization, layout, and interaction functionality you might expect in a graph library, including multiple views, layering, zoom, drag and drop, undo, automatic expanding and collapsing, routing, and layouts. You can create workflow editors, BPMN, CAD tools, network diagrams, database visualization tools, and more. It is fully documented, including examples, and has an active support community.
The Ecere SDK is a cross-platform toolkit for building software applications. It currently runs on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X (through X11), FreeBSD, and the Android OS. It should run on other Unix platforms with minor testing/tweaking. With the Ecere SDK, you can develop applications once and deploy them on all supported platforms alongside a lightweight runtime environment. It introduces eC, an object oriented language derived from and fully compatible with C, compromising neither runtime performance nor ease of use. A built-in 3D engine supporting both Direct3D and OpenGL is fully integrated.
JGraphpad Pro is a complete application framework for rapid development of JGraph tools. It is meant for developers who wish to provide a stand-alone, rich-client graph application. The user interface is configurable with XML, and it uses a plugin architecture for extra functionality. It features a wide range of application components like palette, overview, the ability to export to many image and XML formats, copy and paste, drag and drop, rich text labels, database or backend connectivity, and visual complexity management. You can use it to create workflow editors, call graphs, CAD tools, network diagrams, database visualization tools, and more.
Papyrus is a 2D C++ scenegraph (canvas) library that utilizes the cairo library to perform drawing operations. Similar canvas libraries are the Gnome Canvas, Diacanvas, and the QT Canvas. Numerous canvas primitives are available, including arcs, rectangles, polylines, and line markers. An optional companion library, Papyrusmm, provides a set of Gtkmm widgets which includes viewports (a canvas display widget similar to Gtk::DrawingArea) and other UI widgets related to drawing interfaces.
Agar is a toolkit for graphical applications. It features a modern GUI system with an unobtrusive API. Agar can use different graphics interfaces, such as SDL and OpenGL, and it has been ported to numerous platforms, including game consoles and embedded systems. Agar is implemented in C, but can be used from other languages.
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.
