Creative Commons actively develops the following software projects:
- ccHost (ccMixter source code)
- Translator - http://translate.creativecommons.org/
- Command Line Tools
Also see the Tools Category Index for links to additional projects. Code for our projects is hosted at code.creativecommons.org or Berlios.de; see the Source Repository Policy for information on contributing code or starting a new project. See the Source Repository Information page for general information about the available modules and how to check them out from source control.
We also maintain several library projects which are reused in some of our applications:
- License Wrappers language-specific wrappers for representing and manipulating license information
- Creative Commons Web Services
- Web Services Client Implementations
- Ajax License Chooser
The projects below are currently being discussed or explored:
- Developer Challenges - a long list of challenges set for exploration
- Content Aggregation
- liblicense - an abstract library for implementing license support (C-library)
- Dream CC Tool - A discussion of the "ideal" CC tool; possibly the successor to ccPublisher?
- Development Ideas - A collection of nascent ideas for CC-enabled tools. As these become more fleshed out, they'll be moved to their own pages.
