The AXR Project

The AXR Project is a revolutionary open source project that will fundamentally improve our tools to create web sites and apps.

It's much in the style of current web standards, using plain text files linked together to create the final site, but with a complete separation of content and presentation, where the content is pure semantic data written in XML, and the presentation and behavior layer is written in HSS, a new language based on CSS, but with many powerful features, such as hierarchical notation, object orientation, modularization for code reuse, expressions (math), vector graphics, references (bindings between objects), and a very long etc.

The AXR library and applications are written in C++. The core library's only dependency is Qt, which we use for parsing XML, rendering the graphics, shared pointers, containers, and other functionality.


This repository hosts the AXR core library used to develop applications on top of the AXR platform, as well as libraries for easy integration with various GUI toolkits such as Qt, Cocoa, and SDL.
