The Eclipse Graphical Editing Framework (GEF) provides Eclipse-integrated end-user tools in terms of a Graphviz authoring (DOT editor, DOT Graph view) and a word cloud rendering environment (Tag Cloud view), as well as framework components (Common, Geometry, FX, MVC, Graph, Layout, Zest, DOT, and Cloudio) to create rich graphical Java client applications, Eclipse-integrated or standalone. All relevant information can either be found on GitHub or on projects.eclipse.org.The legacy components Draw2d 3.x, GEF (MVC) 3.x, and Zest 1.x are still maintained but will not be developed further.
