At this point, I’m looking to have buildable trees for a range of interesting projects. Not sure whether I’ll get involved actively in any of these, but I’d like the code around and to be able to take a close look at it.
I’m trying to put together a decently comprehensive list so I’ll have somewhere to go look when I want something that is better than googling and scratching my head. I’m generally including both the main site page and a link to the main github page for the project. There may be an occasional subversion link, but most of the projects I’m seeing use git.
- Blender seems to be the one open source 3D rendering package out there. As I’m not a professional in the 3D space, an open source tool is very appealing.
- I asked a friend who is a mechanical engineer about open source/free CAD packages that might be workable solutions for a 3D printer and FreeCAD was her suggestion.
- EMule Seems like a decent body of code for file sharing and comms protocols.
- Google Protocol Buffers [https://github.com/google/protobuf.git]
- Google Test [https://github.com/google/googletest.git]
- OpenSSL [https://github.com/openssl/openssl.git]
- MySQL [https://github.com/mysql/mysql-server.git]
- MariaDB [https://github.com/MariaDB/server.git]
- SQLite [https://github.com/mackyle/sqlite.git]
- Chrome V8 [https://github.com/v8/v8.git]
- Chakra Code [https://github.com/Microsoft/ChakraCore.git]
- After a quick look this one looks very interesting. I find myself using JSON in many places these days and this library looks more civilized than many I’ve seen for C++.JSON Library that might be decent [https://github.com/nlohmann/json.git]
- OpenH.264 [https://github.com/cisco/openh264.git] is an open source H.264 video codec that is supported by Cisco Systems. Given that my Logitech webcam appears to use H.264 compression on its output, this looks like something of interest for video work I’m looking at.
- Interesting, there’s another one at x264 with a git repo [http://git.videolan.org/git/x264.git]
- Chromium Seems as if the chrome browser source might be out there…may be worth a look. get the code
- Opera Code and On GIT
