Luxor XML UI Language (XUL) Toolkit

Luxor XML UI Language (XUL) Toolkit

Luxor is a free, open-source XML UI Language (XUL) toolkit in released under the GNU General Public License (GPL) that lets you build UIs using XML and includes an ultra-light weight, multi-threaded web server, a portal engine, a template engine (Velocity), a scripting interpreter (Python) and more.

XUL stands for XML UI Language and was pioneered by Mozilla. XUL is superior to API-based UI toolkits such as Swing or WinForms because it clearly separates the user interface into four parts:

_content (structure and description of UI elements),
_appearance (look & feel, skin, themes),
_behavior (scripting) and
_locale (localization information for internationalization)
