What is Enlightenment?

Enlightenment is not just a window manager for Linux/X11 and others, but also a whole suite of libraries to help you create beautiful user interfaces with much less work than doing it the old fashioned way and fighting with traditional toolkits, not to mention a traditional window manager. It covers uses from small mobile devices like phones all the way to powerful multi-core desktops (which are the primary development environment).

Mobile Devices Desktops, Laptops and Netbooks

Enlightenment Foundation Libraries (EFL)

These provide both a semi-traditional toolkit set in Elementary as well as the object canvas (Evas) and powerful abstracted objects (Edje) that you can combine, mix and match, even layer on top of each other with alpha channels and events in-tact. It has 3D transformations for all objects and more.

A overview of the EFL (Enlightenment Foundation Libraries) stack is here. There is more to this, but this gives a quick overview of where it fits in.

Enlightenment Developer Day is ON

Developer day is here again. This time it is planned for the 12th of October, in Düsseldorf, Germany. It is attached to LinuxCon Europe on the day prior in the same area. We have not got our registration up yet, but we will have very limited places for people. We'll be asking a small registration fee that goes to paying for dinner and drinks after the event for socializing.

Details will be coming, so please mark this in your calendars and get ready.

Please see The E Dev Day page for more details.
