XEMPIM is a complete rewrite of EMPIM (the Excessively Modular Personal Information Manager) for Mac OS X. It is written in Objective C/Cocoa to provide maximum compatibility with the OS X environment. The goal of (X)EMPIM is to create a core program which implements methods for loading, unloading, displaying, and communication between autonomous dynamically loadable modules. Each module provides a separate aspect of a standard PIM (Contact List, Calendar, etc).
