First Steps with OpenELEC on the Raspberry Pi 2
OpenELEC uses very little system resources for processor or memory. There's no need to use any special customization tips to get good performance with the RPi2. There's also no need to overclock the machine, reduce the resolution of videos, or use a different skin (although I really like the Amber skin).

R is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. It is a GNU project which is similar to the S language and environment which was developed at Bell Laboratories (formerly AT&T, now Lucent Technologies) by John Chambers and colleagues. R can be considered as a different implementation of S. There are some important differences, but much code written for S runs unaltered under R. Read more


  • Be GTK+ Extras

These widgets include BufferTable and BufferList, which will automatically lay out a data structure visually. The bitgtkmm library widgets are now available in the bit library main distribution in the bit-gtkmm library (use configure option --enable-gtkmm). Since these widgets are available in the general bit release, the bitgtkmm library is officially deprecated as an independent release.

    DEPUI is a small extremely portable user interface library. It uses an object oriented C API with reference counting for many of the objects. The majority of DEPUI souce code is independant of the supporting graphics library, all platform dependent functions are in a single file. DEPUI uses the DEDS library for data structures and the DETK library for assorted gui functions.
  • DiaCanvas
    a generalized version of the drawing canvas used by DIA

It provides a complete and extensible set of graphical items (widgets), such as buttons, scales, trees, message boxes, and dialog boxes. It should be rather easy to create new objects from existing ones. To gain platform independence, the library relies on OpenGl for drawing primitives. Basic event and window management are done using Glfw.

  • GUIS gtk2 widget server
    a small widget server. It is a gtk2 based program listening on a pipe for widget requests (requests are Lua scripts) and outputting events (events are either encoded in XML or in a Lispy syntax).

It is a port of Pyjamas to the desktop, so applications written for Pyjamas can also be run unmodified under Pyjamas-Desktop.

It implements several features and is intended to be inherited from in order to have a "real" console for a specific scripting language, shell, etc... The class relies as much as possible on the features offered by QTextEdit (from which it inherits) and this implied a very simple and light code.

  • qmeterslib
    The qmeterslib library provides a highly customizable Qt widget for creating complex analog dial widgets. It supports multiple scales, multiple needles, and customizable needles and backgrounds.
