Introduction

This page describes the general aspects of Enlightenment and its foundation libraries for packagers. It is not distribution specific, these should go into specific pages, linked at the bottom of this one.

Important Notice for Upcoming DR17 + EFL 1.0

<div style="border: 1px solid #c00; color: #000; background-color: #fcc; margin: 15px; padding: 5px;">
<p>We're about to do a release that will be a major milestone. It is the release that covers our 17th version of window manager and the first version of new generation libraries. <b>It will be our first stable release after 10 years.</b></p>
<br/><br/>
<p>
That said, level of expectation is high and we need to cope with that.  We're doing so by reducing the noise and focusing on what matters. That means:
<ul>
<li>No third party modules;</li>
<li>No third party themes;</li>
<li>No applications;</li>
<li>No secondary or lesser important libraries;</li>
<li>No language bindings.</li>
</ul>
Please hold on these items publicity, recommendation and if possible even the distribution of binaries. The <b>reasoning</b> is simple:
<ul>
<li>We don't want to introduce stability problems and bugs out of our focus;</li>
<li>We keep the look and feel unique, we really need a visual identity;</li>
<li>We better focus on the single application we work most, that drove the whole thing: DR17.</li>
</ul>
Of course users are free to go and adventure themselves into these, but it is not recommended by us at this moment.
</p>
<br/><br/>
<p><b>Please stick with the following package list and follow recommendations whenever applicable. Please discuss any suggestions or questions in our development mail list. The official release is:</b></p>
<ul>
<li>Eina</li>
<li>Eet</li>
<li>Evas</li>
<li>Ecore</li>
<li>Eeze</li>
<li>Embryo</li>
<li>Edje</li>
<li>Efreet</li>
<li>E_DBus</li>
<li>Elementary</li>
<li>Enlightenment DR17</li>
</ul>
<p><i><b>PS:</b> note that some other libraries may be listed in this wiki page, but the above list is what should be released.</i></p>
</div>

Libraries

Most libraries are highly customizable by means of --enable-FEATURE or --with-FEATURE, with most dependencies being handled by pkg-config. Our software use autotools (autoconf/automake), thus exact dependencies can be found in configure.ac files and associated m4/*.m4 (do not forget to look there, as some macros are used to reduce significantly the code in configure.ac, like in ecore and evas!).

Important: being highly customizable and being able to run on a variety of systems do not mean you should enable all features and systems! Some systems are targeted at a very small audience and may bring extra overhead (space, memory, dynamic linkage...) for no good to majority. Try to weight options and prioritize your main public.

For instance, Ecore_Evas does not dynamic loads plugins for different systems, so if you compile it with X11, DirectFB, FrameBuffer and SDL, all these libraries must be present when the library is used, their symbols will be resolved, doing no good if your target audience will likely just use X11. In such case we recommend you to ship with different packages that collide and replace each other, for example libecore-evas-x11only and libecore-evas-generic, with the former being used on systems that do not require the other alternatives. The same applies to Evas, that do have dynamic loaders for its engines and image loaders, but these add a good overhead that could be avoided if such modules were compiled in.

The following subsections will highlight some specific options for core libraries.
