Aletheia
In short, Aletheia is software for getting science published and into the hands of everyone, for free. It's a decentralised and distributed database used as a publishing platform for scientific research. So, Aletheia is software. But software without people is nothing. To comprehensively answer the question what is Aletheia, Aletheia is software surrounded by a community of people who want to change the world through open access to scientific knowledge. For a more in depth explanation, Aletheia is an Ethereum Blockchain application utilising IPFS for decentralised storage that anyone can upload documents to, download documents from, that also handles the academic peer review process. The application runs on individual PCs, all forming part of the IPFS database. This gives us an open source platform that cannot be bought out by the large publishers (and any derivitive works must also be open source) that should also be hard to take down due to the database being spread across the globe in multiple legal jurisdictions. Aletheia is designed to be a resilient platform run transparently by the community, not some black box corporation or editorial board, meaning all users can see the decisions Aletheia is making and have a stake in that decision making process if they so desire. By this nature, Aletheia is decentralised, it has no key person risk. Should the core group who invented Aletheia dissapear Aletheia won't cease to exist, it will continue to be run by the community. The community moderates content through various mechanisms (peer review, reputation scores etc.,) to ensure quality of content.

Algart
AlgART are free software Java libraries, supporting generalized smart arrays and matrices with elements of any types (1 bit, 8/16/32/64-bit integers, 32/64-bit floating point values and any other Java types), including a wide set of of 2D-, 3D- and multidimensional image processing and other algorithms, working with arrays and matrices.

Main Features

  • The libraries use 63-bit addressing of array elements (all indexes and length are represented by 64-bit long type). So, it's theoretically possible to create and process arrays and matrices containing up to 2^63-1 (~10^19) elements of any primitive or non-primitive types, if OS and hardware can provide necessary amount of memory or disk space.
  • Memory model concept allows storing AlgART arrays in different schemes, from simple Java arrays to mapped disk files; all necessary data transfers are performed automatically while every access to an element or a block of elements.
  • Most of algorithms are based on wide usage of lazy evaluations. Typical operations, like elementwise summing or geometrical matrix transformations, are implemented via lazy views of the source array or matrix.
    • For example, you can take a multidimensional matrix, rotate it (or perform any other affine or projective transform), and then extract a submatrix from the result. All these operations will be performed virtually (not requiring time), and actual calculations will be performed only at the moment of accessing elements, usually while copying the resulting matrix to a newly created one. Moreover, in many cases the libraries will "understand" itself, that the user wants to perform rotation or another transform, and will split the matrix into suitable rectangular blocks (fitting in RAM) and choose the best algorithm for this task at the moment of copying operation.
  • The libraries contain a wide set of image processing algorithms over matrices: linear filtering, mathematical morphology, rank operations, spectral transformation (FFT), etc.
  • There is also skeletonization and measuring of binary images.

Advanced verification tools for functional abstraction and static timing analysis are part of the system. A complete set of portable CMOS libraries is provided, including a RAM generator, a ROM generator, and a data-path compiler.
Alogg
'alogg' is a library which makes it easier to use Ogg/Vorbis streams with Allegro. It offers facilities to decode, stream, and encode Ogg/Vorbis streams, and integrates those facilities with Allegro's datafile and sample loading routines. 'alogg' comes with a sample player, streamer, and encoder based on Allegro's sound routines.
Alpine3D
Alpine3D is a spatially distributed (surface), three dimensional (atmospheric) model for analyzing and predicting dynamics of snow-dominated surface processes in mountainous topography. It includes models for snow cover (SNOWPACK), vegetation and soil, snow transport, radiation transfer and runoff which can be enabled or disabled on demand.
Alpy
Alpy provides a Python binding to the C Allegro game programming library. This binding is mostly focused with providing a basic "raw" interface to the library, trying to preserve most of the Python API similar to the C version to ease the transition to C programmers.
Amara
Library for XML processing in Python, designed to balance the native idioms of Python with the native character of XML.
An Gramadoir
An Gramadóir is intended as a platform for the development of sophisticated natural language processing tools for languages with limited computational resources. It is currently implemented for the Irish language (Gaeilge); this is, to the best of my knowledge, the first grammar checker developed for any minority language. Ports for Afrikaans, Cornish, Esperanto, Walloon, and Welsh are currently underway. The grammar checker can be called from emacs, vim, or OpenOffice. Various components of the engine can be bootstrapped using statistical methods based on text corpora.
Anemone
Anemone is a Ruby library that makes it quick and painless to write programs that spider a website. It provides a simple DSL for performing actions on every page of a site, skipping certain URLs, and calculating the shortest path to a given page on a site. The multi-threaded design makes Anemone fast. The API makes it simple. And the expressiveness of Ruby makes it powerful.
AngelScript
The AngelCode Scripting Library, or AngelScript as it is also known, is an extremely flexible cross-platform scripting library designed to allow applications to extend their functionality through external scripts. Featuring a syntax similar to C/C++, it has been designed from the beginning to be an easy to use component, both for the application programmer and the script writer.
AntTweakBar
AntTweakBar allows programmers to quickly add a light and intuitive graphical user interface into graphic programs to interactively tweak them. It is a small and easy to use C/C++ library that can be readily integrated into OpenGL and DirectX applications. It targets graphical programs that need an easy way to tweak parameters and see the result in real-time like 3D demos, light inline game editors, small 3D applications, prototypes, debug facilities of weighter graphical programs, etc. Programmers are not required to design the graphical interface by providing coordinates or by using a visual UI editor. Controls are automatically organized following an optional given hierarchy. In most cases, only one line of code is needed to add a new variable to a tweak bar. AntTweakBar can be easily integrated with your own windowing system or with existing toolkits. Examples of integration with GLFW, SDL, GLU are provided.
Antidote
Antidote is an open source implementation of the IEEE 11073-20601 standard. It also contains the implementation of a D-Bus based 11073 manager service.
Apophenia
'Apophenia' is a statistical library for C. It provides functions on the same level as those of the typical stats package (OLS, probit, singular value decomposition, &c.) but doesn't tie the user to an ad hoc language or environment. It uses the GNU Scientific Library for number crunching and SQLite for data management, so the library itself focuses on model estimation and quickly processing data.
App
'App' is a C++ preprocessor for that accepts as input arbitrary C++ code that may contain embedded constructs for specifying algebraic data types and associated pattern matching operations, and produces as output the same code with all such constructs translated to normal C++. 'app' provides for C++ the same capabilities that functional languages have regarding algebraic types. 'Applib' is the associated runtime library that supports the core run time requirements of the translated code, and which provides additional utilities.
AppTools
The AppTools project includes a set of packages that Enthought has found useful in creating a number of applications. They implement functionality that is commonly needed by many applications
  • enthought.appscripting: Framework for scripting applications.

Argtable
Argtable is a freely available C/C++ programmer's library for parsing the command line arguments. Having only a few functions and a simple set of rules, it is capable of handling most aspects of command line parsing and error reporting with a minimum of fuss.
Armadillo: C++ library
Armadillo is a C++ linear algebra library (matrix and vector maths) aiming towards a good balance between efficiency and ease of use while staying lean. This library is useful if C++ has been decided as the language of choice (due to speed and/or integration capabilities), rather than another language like Matlab ® or GNU Octave. Armadillo uses a delayed evaluation approach in order to combine several operations into one and reduce (or eliminate) the need for temporaries. This is accomplished through extensive use of recursive templates and template meta-programming.
Aspell Heckert gnu.tiny.png
GNU Aspell is a spell checker that can be used either as a library or as an independent spell checker. It does a much better job of coming up with possible suggestions than other English language spell checkers. Other technical enhancements over Ispell include shared memory for dictionaries and intelligent handling of personal dictionaries when more than one Aspell process is open.
