Plugin framework for GLib
Ethos is a plugin framework that is written in C using the GLib and GObject libraries. The goal is to have a single framework for applications that lower the barrier to entry for extensions. To enable as many communities as possible, various language bindings are provided to allow extensions in the language of choice.
Ethos includes a GUI library as well named libethos-ui. This library provides a gtk+ widget for managing plugins within your application. Typically, you can simply add this to a "Plugins" tab in your applications preferences dialog.
