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.
OpenAIS is an open source implementation of the SA Forum (www.saforum.org) Application Interface Specification. The project currently implements APIs to improve availability by reducing MTTR. APIs available are cluster membership, application failover, checkpointing, eventing, distributed locking, messaging, closed process groups, and extended virtual synchrony passthrough. It is possible to write redundant applications that tolerate hardware, operating system, and application faults. Cluster software developers can write plugins to use the infrastructure provided by OpenAIS.
QOF (Query Object Framework), provides a set of C Language utilities for performing generic structured complex queries on a set of data held by a set of C/C++ objects. This framework is unique in that it does not require SQL or any database at all to perform the query. Thus, it allows programmers to add query support to their applications without having to hook into an SQL database.
Grapple is designed to be a simple network layer, allowing the addition of multiuser features to an application for as little as a dozen lines of code. However, it also allows for more. It features simple client-server networking that keeps all clients aware of all other clients, passworded servers, and data transfer via TCP, UDP, or reliable UDP. Advanced features include network messaging via push, pull, or a combination, multiple methods of querying users, user groups for client bandwidth saving, network load reacting data transmission and retransmission, background pinging to monitor network states, server failover, and a fully functional lobby system.
The BitNami DjangoStack is an all-in-one installer that greatly simplifies the installation of Django and its runtime dependencies. It includes ready-to-run versions of Python, Django, MySQL, and Apache. It supports Linux, Windows, and OS X, so you can share the same Django environment on multiple platforms.
UnCommon Web is a Web application framework. UnCommon Web features a component based UI construction toolkit, template and programmatic dynamic HTML generation engines, and linear (also known as modal or continuation) page flow control. UnCommon Web can sit behind Apache or a pure Lisp Web server.
The PEAK library tries to achieve high performance in combining multi-threading with an efficient I/O event model. You can write event-based applications that use massive sockets I/O, timers, and signals. Its underlying I/O multiplexing engine supports kqueue(2) (FreeBSD, NetBSD, and Mac OS X), epoll(2) (Linux 2.6), and /dev/poll (Solaris). It provides support for optimized memory allocations, basic database primitives, and synchronization.
libposix is an impementation of the core functionality of all Unix systems. It is a full, cross-platform implementation of the POSIX 2008 standard. It is meant to replace existing implementations of a Unix system's core libraries. It is an exact implementation of POSIX 2008 and nothing else (no extensions, no previous POSIX versions). However, it works well with possible extensions to the core system functionallity (for example, GNU or BSD).
