Proposed directory structure for Inkscape's source code.

  • src
    • 2geom: Geometry (move to library)
    • actions: GActions, SPActions, Verbs (GActions to replace SPActions and Verbs)
    • display: (Rename 'render'?)
      • drawing: Render SVG (DrawingItem and derived classes)
        • filters: Render filters
      • canvas: UI controls (CanvasItem and derived classes)
      • common
    • extension
      • dbus
      • internal: (move to io)
      • plugins
      • etc.
    • io: Reading/writing files
    • libraries: (move parallel to 'src', rename 3rd party?)
      • libavoid
      • libcola
      • libcroco
      • libdepixelize
      • potrace
      • etc.
    • manipulation: Manipulation of SVG (divide into generic and UI dependent?)
      • chemistry
      • live-effects
      • misc
      • selection
      • snap
    • object: Object tree (e.g. SPRect)
      • containers: (e.g. group)
      • shapes: (e.g. rect)
      • filters
      • etc.
    • ui
      • cache
      • dialog: Dialogs
      • menu: Menus
      • toolbar: Toolbars
      • tool: Move to Manipulator
      • tools: Tools
      • view ?
      • widget
        • basic: Basic custom widgets (e.g. ink-combobox-entry)
        • composite: Composite widgets (e.g. simple-filter-modifier)
        • derived: (name?)
          • attribute: Widgets that change attributes
          • property: Widgets that change properties
          • preference: Widgets that change preferences
      • onscreen: (knots)
    • util: (Merge helper & util)
      • numeric
      • color
      • svg
    • xml: XML manipulation (Mostly SVG/Inkscape agnostic)

Already exists.
