The aim of this project is to provide a common infrastructure for free CAD software—basically, a GUI ready to fill with domain-specific code. It covers common, reusable features such as an undo/redo mechanism, property editor, library browser, navigation between files and management of file dependencies. The domain modules (which are intended to be written in a scripting language as far as reasonably possible) provide a description of the actual objects and operations. This architecture roughly compares to that of Emacs.
Xi is still in early development.
