1~~Title: Enlightenment Main~~ CBD Capsules is very discreet, easy to use, and very convenient for on the go usage. You may get odd looks when you carry a dropperful of CBD capsule oil with you in public, but just pop an empty CBD capsule into your pocket, and no one will give you a second look. One of the great benefits of CBD Capsules is that they contain 100% pure CBD and are the most pure and potent natural supplement available today.

9==== Window Manager ====

13[[:about-enlightenment|Enlightenment]] started out way back in 1996 as a project to build a Window Manager for X11. It has grown much more since then. Enlightenment still produces this Window Manager, but it has evolved to also cover Mobile, Wearable and TV UI requirements for projects such as [[http://www.tizen.org|Tizen]] as well as the traditional "desktop" UI. We still push out releases. See our [[:download|download]] page for more details on this. Visit our [[contrib/|contribute]] page for our latest source code repositories.
14
15The project is currently transitioning from [[http://www.x.org|X11]] to [[http://wayland.freedesktop.org|Wayland]]. We are fully committed to moving to Wayland eventually, as its the future of graphical display layers on Linux.
16
17We still primarily support Linux for Enlightenment, but there is some effort (based on help and support from users and some developers) to support BSD too.

21==== Libraries ====
22
23{{ :diagram-block-efl.svg?nolink&320}}
24
25While developing the Window Manager, a set of libraries was also developed. These libraries are known collectively as [[:about-efl|EFL]]. They cover a range of functionality from main-loop, to graphics, scene graphs, networking, widgets, data storage, IPC and much more.
26
27We now are starting to pull in bindings support directly into EFL. We are working on auto-generated bindings for %%C++%%, Lua and Javascript (v8/node.js). We hope eventually to pull in our Python bindings too, so we can support as many languages as possible and keep them up to date.
28
29Our primary development environment is Linux, but we make an effort to support BSD as much as possible, as well as macOS and Windows.

33==== Applications ====
34
35{{:shot-terminology.png?nolink&240 }}
36
37We use our libraries not only to make [[:about-enlightenment|Enlightenment]] but other applications for day to day use. We make these applications available for free.
38
39{{ :shot-rage.png?nolink&240}}
40
41We have included common features such as a [[:about-terminology|terminal emulator]], [[:about-rage|video player]], an [[:about-ephoto|image viewer]], and even the makings of [[:about-edi|an IDE]].
42
43[[http://www.tizen.org|Native Tizen applications]] are developed using EFL. This is because we've focused on remaining lean, yet feature-rich. Unlike many traditional toolkits, EFL is based around a scene graph from the ground up. This allows us to seamlessly switch from software rendering to OpenGL or any other mechanism that can be put in a render engine for Evas the canvas scene graph engine. This also permits layer widgets and objects with alpha channels from the ground up without any special coding tricks.
44
45{{:shot-edi.png?nolink&240 }}
46
47This is by no means a complete list of applications and more are on the way. We may not have started the traditional way, but are building our library over time. Tizen also has a library of its own.

55We run as an open source project. People contribute because they like to or because they are paid. The intent is to release everything under liberal open source licenses with no restrictions on those using such works except the usual "share alike" clauses found in GPLv2 etc.
56
57We also receive other types of contributions. Our community files bug reports, as well as simply providing feedback. Other entities also support us.
58
59This entire website runs on a machine bought with donations from developers and the community. [[/contrib/start|Donations]] are highly appreciated. We have a non-profit Enlightenment foundation based in France, which acts as custodian of such funds until they're needed.
