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.
Netclasses is an asynchronous networking library that works with GNUstep and Mac OS X. Out of the box, it gives a nice, asynchronous, and object-oriented interface for IRC, line- based, and raw TCP/IP connections. Users can easily subclass the raw TCP/IP or line-based interfaces to create asynchronous interfaces for other sorts of connections.
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.
