We provide a complete set of development tools for building cross-platform software applications for desktop and mobile platforms. The Ecere SDK is free open source sofware allowing you to write an application once and deploy it on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and Android platforms. It will let you to build applications using eC, C or C++. The SDK is included in the official repositories of Debian based Linux distributions, including Ubuntu and Linux Mint, as the 'ecere-sdk' package. It is licensed under a 3-clause BSD license, allowing you to build commercial and proprietary applications with it.

  • eC Programming Language

    We designed eC as an expressive and intuitive, C style object oriented language. While allowing you to do anything you can do with the C language, in addition to a powerful yet simple set of object oriented features somewhat inspired from some of C++'s syntax (classes, inheritance, encapsulation/access-level control), eC features per-instance virtual methods overrides, reflection, properties, dynamic modules imports as an alternative to header files and does not require prototype declarations. It natively supports UTF-8 encoded Unicode character strings.

  • Ecere SDK: Cross-platform GUI toolkit, 2D/3D Graphics, Networking

    The Ecere SDK features a cross-platform runtime library providing graphical user interface components, 2D and 3D graphics, networking support, system functionality such as file system access and threading support, and a lot more.

    It also features international text support, with its own built-in implementation of gettext translation files and an elegant syntax for specifying in the code which strings to translate. The SDK is fully translated in Simplified Chinese and Spanish, and a number of other translations have begun.

  • Ecere Documentor

    Ecere Documentor is a tool for documenting and browsing documentation of eC class libraries' APIs. Classes within modules are automatically organized by namespaces, and an hyperlinked interface for browsing through types (classes), data members, properties and methods is automatically generated. In Documentation mode, text can be added to document all descriptions, parameters, members with sections for usage, remarks, examples and 'See Also'.

  • The Ecere Tao of Programming

    The Tao is a book we're writing on software development with the Ecere SDK. At present this serves as a crash course on the eC programming language, as the remainder of the book which should focus on the Ecere APIs remains to be written. This draft is a free PDF.

Add 2D or 3D maps to your applications with our GIS visualization SDK.

The SDK is licensed free of charge to educational institutions for educational use.

  • GNOSIS: a high performance object oriented GIS visualization SDK

    The GNOSIS SDK is a cross-platform object-oriented SDK for visualizing map data and geographic information. It features remarkably responsive real-time 3D and cartographic projections. It allows you to import a variety of Digital Elevation Model, raster and vector imagery formats. Thanks to an optimal multi-resolution tiling scheme, it will achieve consistant high performance whether viewing from down on the ground or looking at the entire globe. Map styling is achieved through powerful cascading style sheets, which can be conveniently edited from within GNOSIS Cartographer.

    See GNOSIS in action at ecere.ca/gnosis
  • GNOSIS Cartographer: visualize, style and publish map data

    GNOSIS cartographer allows you to easily preview, import, style and preprocess maps to our optimal map format. Intuitively visualize data fields available for your maps and which data they qualify, keep a library of available map sources, publish and use a collection of maps as a single bundle.

  • Paper2PACS: scan paper documents and attach them to PACS studies

    Paper2PACS supports flat bed and feeding tray scanners through WIA, on any version of Windows from XP to 8 (for a different platform, please contact us; we might consider a port). It features study look up and automated completion for all data fields. You can also load or save images from/to disk. DICOM configuration is user-configurable.
    Please download a free 60 days trial and contact us to obtain a license key.

    Avira users: Avira blindly complains about all executable packed with UPX. This would be a false positive.
