Here lie posts (tutorials, news, profiles, series, and blogs) involving specific programming applications. A programming application is a program created in a programming language that allows the user to further program or accomplish some goal. These include compilers, content management systems, and game engines.

These days, the distinction between a framework/technology and an application is often blurred. In one sense, WordPress out of the box allows you to make a blog. In another sense, it provides functionality that expands within that environment with additional code. The major difference here between something like WordPress and something considering technology such as PyGame is simple.

An application can perform a function or empower the user concerning a task without additional programming. You can install WordPress and never code again, and you’ll still have a blog. You can’t install PyGame and expect to have a game engine instantly. This section outlines various (hackable) applications (that sometimes act as frameworks) such as the aforementioned WordPress and other CMSs, editors like Atom, compiler toolchains such as LLVM, and even game development applications such as Godot, Unity, and even Visual Novel Maker.
