  • JIGS - GNUstep Java interface
  • RIGS - GNUstep Ruby bridge

Other frameworks (not official parts of GNUstep project)


  • MusicKit - The MusicKit is an object-oriented software system for building music, sound, signal processing, and MIDI applications. It has been used in such diverse commercial applications as music sequencers, computer games, and document processors. Professors and students in academia have used the MusicKit in a host of areas, including music performance, scientific experiments, computer-aided instruction, and physical modeling.


  • IDEKit - Framework for programmer editors (I have stated to port it to GNUstep, to know more you can contact me Quentin Mathé)
  • PCRE Parser - Perl-compatible regular expression library.
  • SKYRIX Core - Various Foundation extensions, classes for processing MIME entities


  • 3DKit - The GNU 3DKit provides multiple Objective-C frameworks which facilitate the design and implementation of 3D applications based on OpenGL. It tightly integrates with GNUstep and Cocoa.
  • CameraKit : a simple wrapper to libgphoto
  • DiagramKit : DiagramKit is a framework for manipulating, linking, drawing diagrams.
  • GOOD - GOOD stands for GNUstep Object Oriented Diagramming. It is a library that aims to provide GNUstep developers a way to add modern diagramming capabilities to their own application.
  • Maliwan - GNUstep Generic Graphic Manipulate Framework.
  • Narrative - an LGPLed object oriented plotting framework for Cocoa and GNUstep
  • PDFKit : PDFKit is a framework that supports rendering of PDF content in GNUstep applications.
  • SlideShowKit : a small kit to include slideshow in your application


  • GSWebKit - The GNUstep Web Kit provides a set of classes to display web content in windows, and implements browser features such as following links when clicked by the user, managing a back-forward list, and managing a history of pages recently visited"

  • SMBKit - SAMBA library wrapper


  • Addresses - A framework that allows access to the addresses database in a way that is sourcecode-compatible with Apple's AddressBook framework. It also contains a view framework to facilitate the construction of applications that use the contact database.
  • SKYRIX Core - Classes for iCalendar/vCard objects
  • syncml - SyncML is an XML based standard for data synchronization.

Scripting and Binding

Text Processing

  • libobjcxerces - XML (SAX, SAX2) and DOM handling in Objective-C using libXerces.
  • SKYRIX XML - provides a SAX2 implementation for Objective-C, DOM on top of SaxObjC, an XML-RPC implementation (without the transport layer), SaxObjC driver bundles for: libical (iCalendar,vCard), expat (XML), plists, pyx, CoreFoundation (XML) )
