Now, my personal favourites are libsexy:

"libsexy is a collection of GTK+ widgets that extend the functionality of
such standard widgets as GtkEntry and GtkLabel by subclassing them and
working around the limitations of the widgets.

Homepage: http://www.chipx86.com/wiki/Libsexy"


and libast:

"LibAST is the Library of Assorted Spiffy Things. It contains many
spiffy things, and it is a library. Thus, the ever-so-creative name.
LibAST has been previously known as libmej, the Eterm helper library
which nobody really understood and certainly never used. The
plan is to gradually remove some of the neat stuff from Eterm that
could be made generic (things like the theme parsing engine, the
command-line options parser, perhaps the event engine, ...) and place
it here in the hopes that others will find them useful."


What are your favourites? hehe ^_^

In Arch, libsexy's description is "Doing naughty things to good widgets" :P

This lib doesn't sound particularly useful to me, but the name is awesome:

"libroxen-sexybodyThis module modifies the default behavior of the <BODY> tag so that if
you specify <BODY> without any arguments then it replaces it with the
default colour arguments from the roxen configuration interface. This
is the beginnings of a module, and will not currently handle onLoad
events or the like."

That's an awesome name for a library. lol
