An interactive viewer for three-dimensional chemical structures.
Over 10,000,000 page views! Jmol/JSmol is a molecular viewer for 3D chemical structures that runs in four independent modes: an HTML5-only web application utilizing jQuery, a Java applet, a stand-alone Java program (Jmol.jar), and a "headless" server-side component (JmolData.jar). Jmol can read many file types, including PDB, CIF, SDF, MOL, PyMOL PSE files, and Spartan files, as well as output from Gaussian, GAMESS, MOPAC, VASP, CRYSTAL, CASTEP, QuantumEspresso, VMD, and many other quantum chemistry programs. Files can be transferred directly from several databases, including RCSB, EDS, NCI, PubChem, and MaterialsProject. Multiple files can be loaded and compared. A rich scripting language and a well-developed web API allow easy customization of the user interface. Features include interactive animation and linear morphing. Jmol interfaces well with JSpecView for spectroscopy, JSME for 2D->3D conversion, POV-Ray for images, and CAD programs for 3D printing (VRML export).

A Logo interpreter and programming environment specialized for schools
A Logo interpreter and programming environment specialized for schools. It is a revised version of XLogo, published on http://xlogo.tuxfamily.org/. The Logo dialect is almost the same as Xlogo's, but some Logo commands were reimplemented to fit with the new programming environment and workspace. Some commands which were buggy in the original XLogo have been fixed. The interpreter works now more efficient due to the usage of more suitable data structures. The output of turtle graphics is now smoother and more appealing due to different rendering settings. Various features have been added to support better user experience and satisfaction in schools. @Translations: The new GUI parts are available in * English * German * French * Italian If you would like to make the application available in your language and if you would like to contribute, please contact us. * * * * * * * * * * * News * * * * * * * * * * The X4S Manual is now available on the files page.

TuxWordSmith uses XDXF dictionaries to play in 88 languages
Similar to the classic word game 'Scrabble', but with unicode support for multiple languages and character sets. The game is currently distributed with eighty-eight (88) dictionary resources for playing Language[i]-Language[j] 'Scrabble'. For example, if configured to use the French-English dictionary, then the distribution of available tiles will be computed based on frequency of occurance of each character of Language[i] (French), and for each submission the corresponding definition will be given in Language[j] (English).
