HGL Suite iconHGL Suite 0.5.21

An interpreter/compiler suite for easily creating images on Linux-based operating systems
HGL or HGL Suite is an open source, freely distributed compiler and interpreter command-line software specially designed for developing images. It features its own simple, yet powerful language.

The application's runtime input is handled entirely by plugins, and its output format is configurable by plugins. It can be easily integrated into various environments, such as graphical applications and web servers.

For those curios about how the program works, we can tell you that the input is taken from a source file that needs to be compiled for frequent and quick access by the interpreter, which then runs the compiled files, takes input from custom plugins (if required), and outputs its result.

HGL Suite is a network transparent software, which means that it gets input from heterogeneous protocols. It's powered by LUA scripting and can be used as to quickly and easily convert the SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) file format to HGL (HP Graphics Language) files.
