Based on the C.a.R. (Compass and Ruler) project, CaRMetal includes all of its functionalities - or almost. It propose a different approach from the graphical interface point of view.

  • Ruler and compass constructions can be changed by dragging one of the basic construction points. The construction follows immediately. The student can check the correctness of the construction and gain new insight.

  • Tracks of points and animated constructions can help to understand geometric relations. Tracks can be used as new objects to explore.

  • With the macros of C.a.R. very complicated constructions become possible. Macros are also a way to organize the geometric thinking.

  • Hiding construction details and using colors make constructions clearer to read. In C.a.R. lines and circles can also be reduced to the relevant points.

  • Arithmetic computations, numerical solutions, curves and functions go beyond classical constructions. It is even possible to construct in 3D using advanced macros.

  • Other geometries, hyperbolic or elliptic, can be explored.

  • Scripting (javascript based) of figures.

GeoGebra is a dynamic geometry system. You can do constructions with points, vectors, segments, lines, conic sections as well as functions and change them dynamically afterwards. On the other hand, equations and coordinates can be entered directly.

Support for many geometric constructions is provided, as well as support for many elementary calculus-based tools (derivatives, osculating circle, ...).

GeoGebra files can be exported in many different formats, or as interactive applets for web pages.

This package contains the KDE thumbnailer for the GeoGebra file format.

DEMGenGeo is a library for creating geometry files used by ESyS-Particle. It provides a convenient method for creating arbitrary geometries of simple spherical particles and indivisible particle clusters. An LSMGenGeo script written in Python specifies the geometry that will be written to a text file and the format that this file takes. The geometry file can then be read by an ESyS-Particle script

This package contains the Python 3 module.

CGAL (Computational Geometry Algorithms Library) makes the most important of the solutions and methods developed in computational geometry available to users in industry and academia in a C++ library. The goal is to provide easy access to useful, reliable geometric algorithms.

This package contains most of the header files. The header files for visualization with Qt can be found in the package libcgal-qt5-dev.

This package contains several different Rubik's cube solvers, either useful directly on the command-line or through sagemath.

Michael Reid's "optimal" uses pre-computed tables to find an optimal solution to the 3x3x3 Rubik's cube.

Dik T.Winter's "dikcube" uses Kociemba's algorithm to iteratively find a short solution to the 3x3x3 cube.

Eric Dietz' "cubex" has fast non-optimal solver for the 3x3x3 cube.

Packaging has started and developers might try the packaging code in VCS
