SILGraphite (formerly OpenGraphite) is a project within SIL's Non-Roman Script Initiative and Language Software Development groups to provide extensible cross-platform rendering capabilities for complex non-Roman writing systems. It consists of a rule-based programming language, Graphite Description Language (GDL), that can be used to describe the behavior of a writing system, a compiler for that language, and a rendering engine that can serve as the backend of a text processing application. SILGraphite renders TrueType fonts that have been extended by means of compiling a GDL program. It is currently being integrated into Gecko/Mozilla through the SILA project, a GNU/Linux port is also underway, and there are plans for OpenOffice.org and Abiword integration.
Jaffa (Java Application Framework For All) is an enterprise-focused Java framework for rapid application development. It provides a complete Java Web application development stack, extending exsiting projects like Tomcat and Struts at the frontend with MVC-based web widgets, all the way through to a high-performance lightweight O/R persistence engine, with plenty of rich features in between including rules engines, declarative application, and data security. In addition to the runtime framework, there is a suite of component templates and other tools for rapid application development, including a TogetherSoft plug-in for UML intergration.
libintl-perl is a library that supports message translation for Perl, written in pure Perl (version 5.004 or better). A faster C version is also built and installed if the system fulfills all requirements. Its interface is a superset of the gettext family of functions in C, and it uses the same file formats as GNU gettext, making it possible to use all tools available for gettext itself and to seamlessly integrate internationalized Perl code into mixed-language projects.
Mozilla Localization with PO Files provides Mozilla DTD and properties files converted to the Gettext PO format to allow easier localization using one of the graphical PO editors such as KBabel, GTranslator, or poEdit. These files are created using the moz2po application from the Translate package.
PHP Net_IDNA is a class to convert between the Punycode and Unicode formats. Punycode is a standard described in RFC 3492 and part of IDNA (Internationalizing Domain Names in Applications [RFC3490]) . This class allows PHP scripts to convert these domain names without having one of the PHP extensions installed. It supports both IDNA 2003 and IDNA 2008.
HEBCI is a technique that allows a Web form handler to transparently detect the character set with which its data was encoded. By using carefully-chosen character references, the browser's encoding can be inferred. Thus, it is possible to guarantee that data is in a standard encoding without relying on (often unreliable) Web server/browser encoding interactions.
