PropXX provides a property/configuration mechanism for C++ applications. Properties can be defined in files similar to but more flexible than Java properties. Property files are defined in a type-safe, modular way and offer the full expressiveness of the Lua scripting language. The design of PropXX combines flexibility with high performance for the C++ code that accesses property values. The property values are stored in objects of special property classes, which are automatically generated from the property set definitions. Performance-critical code can be inlined by the compiler, and a typical access to a property value is as cheap as reading a single variable from the memory. No costly data structures like hashes, balanced trees, etc. are involved.
The Crate Game Engine is a game engine that is designed to make creating games trivial. The rendering and scripting engines are removed from the game engine to make the specialization of games as easy as possible. Currently, scripting support is implemented to allow a Lua script to be put directly in the game file, which can be validated as XML. Multiplayer text based adventure-style games can be played with the existing console rendering engine.
