Simple widget classes for C++ development
This project aims to provide a set of simple controls to support user interface development in C++ apps which use a graphics API. This is only a set of widget classes. Each widget class provides vertex data for rendering but rendering itself is not covered (use OpenGL + FreeType or DirectX) nor is window handling (use eg. SDL, Qt, or GLFW). Currently under full-time development. An example project is provided which has four dependencies: SDL, OpenGL, GLEW and GLM. Feature set not fully...
libwps is a Microsoft Works file format import filter based on top of the librevenge (see https://sourceforge.net/p/libwpd/wiki/librevenge/ ).
