For the third time, an award program has been organized to reward the best open source contributions of 2021. All contributions were eligible for application: it could be an open-source plugin, a pull-request on GitHub, a video, a tutorial or documentation pages.
The program included two prizes. The winners have been announced on 24th November during the 2021 SOFA Symposium:
(University of Stuttgart)
|The SofaCaribou plugin brings advanced numerical tools to SOFA. Its modern C++ design is based on compile-time polymorphism using comprehensible template metaprogramming. It also mixes high performance with high generecity: most components are completely independent from the element type (triangle, quad, tetrahedron, hexahedron, etc.). It therefore allows the developer of a component to focus on the algorithm itself and delegate to the compiler the generation of any element specific implementation. Moreover, most components are accompanied by their respective python bindings.||This repository provides very easy to use pyqt widgets for viewing Sofa cameras in python3 and makes it easy for users to build their own python-based simulations and have full control over the simulation environment. Features are still being added and examples are included to show usage.|
