An Open Source platform for Web applications
RiSource.org supports the Open Source development of customizable web applications. The main software available at this site is the Platform for Information Applications (PIA), an Open Source server technology that replaces CGI scripts and embedded programming languages with "active" tags. We are currently developing several individual and group applications such as an Office Forms system, a shared Calendar, and a browser-independent bookmark and history manager. These applications along with the PIA itself are openly available.
Meanwhile, a project to port the document-processing engine of the PIA from Java to C, with the eventual aim of making it into an Apache module, is underway at SourceForge under the project name cPIA.
