Synth is a C++ template framework - a set of components that can be mixed and matched to build the right functionality; furthermore, components are loosely-coupled, designed to be both extensible and replaceable. Synth blurs the line between compile-time and runtime, and it does so by blending the static C++ type system, the dynamic values that need to be manipulated and formatted, including those from other languages, and the templates to do so. The name is an allusion to this synthesis process, which combines values to generate new ones (streams, files, strings, numbers, etc.)
The aim of this project is to create a free (open source, OS independent) remake of the classic SSI game Imperialism. While the spirit and many concepts of the original should be preserved, it should not become a pure copy but advance the concept in a sense that modern elements of strategic games are included, e.g. of the Civilization series. The game is written in Java using Swing for the user interface. The philosophy is to keep it as simple as possible, use standard/well tested libraries wherever possible and to demand clean, understandable code.
GCompris is an educational software suite with numerous activities for children aged 2 to 10. Some of the activities are game-orientated, but nonetheless still educational. These include computer discovery (keyboard, mouse, different mouse gestures), algebra (table memory, enumeration, double entry table, mirror image), science (the canal lock, the water cycle, the submarine, electric simulation), geography (place the country on the map), games (chess, memory, connect 4, oware, sudoku), reading practice, and others (learn to tell time, puzzles of famous paintings, vector drawing, cartoon making, etc.). It currently offers in excess of 100 activities, and more are being developed.
CubicWeb is a semantic Web application framework that empowers developers to build Web applications by reusing components (called cubes) and following the well known object-oriented design principles. Its main features are: an engine driven by the explicit data model of the application; a query language, RQL, similar to W3C’s SPARQL; a selection+view mechanism for semi-automatic XHTML/XML/JSON/text generation; a library of reusable components (data model and views) that fulfill common needs; the power and flexibility of the Python programming language; and the reliability of SQL databases, LDAP directories, Subversion, and Mercurial for storage backends.
