Probably few will be interested but just in case... I have a large code base (about a million lines) that I've been working on for a long time. Half is general purpose code and the other half is an automation system called CQC. I decided to open source the general purpose half, about 1100 classes, which is on GitHub:

GitHub - DeanRoddey/CIDLib: The CIDLib general purpose C++ development environment[^]

* The repo ReadMe has a lot more info, so I didn't repeat it here

It's very much a 'personal vision' in that it's all created by a single person and it's not based on the standard C++ libraries or STL and it's all about a integrated, monolithic approach instead of the pieces and parts approach of most C++. So obviously it's off the beaten path.

Some of you may be interested, if not to use it maybe to see how such a thing might be done.

On a side note...

Something off the beaten path clearly threatens a lot of people. I posted originally about it in r/cpp and just got raped by haters pretty much. One guy posted a sort of one liner 'good job' type of comment and had like 18 down votes at some point. Eventually a couple folks stood up for me, but it was almost universally somewhere between negative and hateful. Not exactly the kind of thing that would encourage others to contribute their life's work.
