Squeak is an OpenSource and super-portable implementation of a multi-media capable Smalltalk-80 based object-oriented programming environment. It is written entirely in Smalltalk and has a high-performance VM, created by compiling the Smalltalk VM code into efficient and portable C code. It now uses the Self language's Morphic User Interface but still provides the original MVC GUI as well.
PageLayout is a layout lanager for Java Swing/AWT that encapsulates, in a single library, the functionality of many other layout managers. It allows you to lay out components in appropriately aligned rows, columns, and grids. The elements of rows, columns, and grids may themselves be rows, columns, and grids of components. As a result, relatively complex layouts can be managed with code that is compact and conceptually quite straightforward to understand and, therefore, maintain.
The edit-on JavaBean SDK is a customizable, feature-rich JavaBean that allows developers to add WYSIWYG editing functionality to their AWT- or Swing-based applications. It features an intuitive word processor-like user interface that enables XHTML content authoring with XML markup, and has a royalty free run-time license.
The OpenInput library is intended as a free (libre), easy-to-use, cross-platform input handler library. The goal is to provide an SDL-like interface to input devices such as keyboards, mice, and joysticks while keeping the dependencies for the library at a bare minimum and making it simple to integrate in existing projects. All functions and data structures are intuitive and fully documented. The library has support for both event-based input handling and unbuffered input.
Free Java is a development environment designed to help beginners write Java programs. Its editor includes syntax highlighting and an undo/redo function. It features a structure panel and a file browser. Compiling and running a program can be done with the push of a single button, and compiler errors are shown clearly. There is also a virtual console to show a program's console output. Free Java is based on J2SDK 1.3.
KTML is a browser-based WYSIWYG HTML editor that facilitates easy content formatting using its advanced table and image manipulation features. Unlike other online editors, it supports most platforms and configurations, providing users with advanced text and paragraph formatting capabilities as well as CSS support and easy HTML tag selection. It also features advanced image manipulation, an effective spell checking module, and a Server Behavior for Dreamweaver MX.
CocoaDialog is an application that allows the use of common GUI controls such as file selectors, text input, progress bars, yes/no confirmations, and more from within a command-line application. It requires no knowledge of Cocoa, and is ideal for adding front-ends to shell, Perl, Ruby, or Python scripts.
wyoGuide is a tutorial, a collection of guidelines for building cross-platform applications with a well-designed, consistent look and feel. It gives ideas and advice on how an application and its GUI could and should be written. Development with these guidelines gives the GUI of an application a standard set of base functionality. wyoGuide also provides sample code for each guideline written in C++ using the wxWidgets (formerly wxWindows) framework. For a seasoned developer it shouldn't be difficult to adapt these guidelines to other languages or frameworks.
