aicwl is an Ada library that is intended for designing high-quality industrial control widgets for Ada applications. The widgets are composed of transparent layers drawn by cairo. The widgets are fully scalable graphics. A time controlled refresh policy is supported for real-time and heavy-duty applications. The library supports caching graphical operations and stream I/O for serialization and deserialization. Ready-to-use gauge and meter widgets are provided as samples as well as an editor widget for WYSIWYG design of complex dashboards. The software is based on GtkAda and cairoada, the Ada bindings to GTK+ and cairo.
Matreshka is a framework for developing information systems in Ada. It includes support for unbounded form strings of Unicode characters, including case conversions and folding, normalization, collation, support for regular expression matching, an XML processor, and a FastCGI module. It also provides capabilities to manipulate by UML models, which allows you to develop tools like code generators.
The gps_installer is a GTK+ application used to integrate custom Ada library projects into the Gnat Programming Studio (GPS). The installer is designed to be as simple as possible. It takes the directory where the source files are located and the list of files to install. The installer tries to figure out where to move the files and how to process them. No specific actions need to be specified.
The library is a contribution to GtkAda, an Ada bindings to GTK+ toolkit. It deals with the following issues: tasking support; custom models for tree view widget; custom cell renderers for tree view widget; multi-columned derived model; an extension derived model (to add columns to an existing model); an abstract caching model for directory-like data; tree view and list view widgets for navigational browsing of abstract caching models; file system navigation widgets with wildcard filtering; resource styles; capturing the resources of a widget; embeddable images; some missing sub-programs and bugfixes; a measurement unit selection widget and dialogs; an improved hue-luminance-saturation color model; simplified image buttons and buttons customizable by style properties; controlled Ada types for GTK+ strong and weak references; and a simplified means to create lists of strings.
QtAda is an Ada2005 language binding to the Qt libraries and a set of useful tools. It allows you to easily create powerful cross-platform graphical user interfaces completely on Ada 2005. QtAda applications use the native look and feel on every supported platform. It also allows you to develop your own widgets and integrate them into the Qt Designer for high speed visual GUI development. It uses a native thread-safe signal/slot mechanism and provides full transparent integration with Ada tasks.
Structure101 is a tool to understand, measure, and control software structure. It allows you to see exactly how your high-level components depend on each other and why. You can use it to find out immediately when your architecture is accidentally changed by code-level changes at the coal-face. It can help you control structural complexity, since it can measure the complexity of methods, classes, and packages and warn you when given limits are exceeded. It can also discover the locations of productivity-killing package dependency cycles.
WIPORT is a layer over the grx graphics library which provides a simple GUI API with memorization of the objects displayed in the various windows. This makes redrawing and printing to a scalable PostScript representation easy to do. Thanks to the grx library programs, using WIPORT works identically on the DOS graphical console, Linux+svgalib, and Linux+X11. WIPORT is written in C and comes with an Ada-95 binding.
