Pardon my noobness, but I am new to GTK.  I had assumed there would be a

I missing something? Is there are directory of other efforts to add value to
the base classes?

There are a few I know of:


This is part of gnome, but you can use it separately (I think). It's a
set of gtk widgets that people have written that seem useful but which
haven't settled enough to go into the main gtk distribution yet. I
think the name is supposed to suggest incubation: if a libegg widget
becomes popular and useful enough, it will eventually get into gtk.
For example, the recent files stuff started out in libegg, I think.


A library of extra widgets, seems nice, widely used.


Sheet, plot and other widgets. This is now becoming a little
old-fashioned (in my opinion), most of their widgets now have
equivalents in the main gtk tree.

In addition, most gtk applications include a set of their own widgets
which you can usually just cut out and keep (license permitting).
