- netCDF - a set of software libraries and self-describing, machine-independent data formats that support the creation, access, and sharing of array-oriented scientific data.
- OpenBLAS - one of the fastest open source BLAS libraries available. Almost as fast as Intel MKL.
- PAW - conceived as an instrument to assist physicists in the analysis and presentation of their data

## JSON Manipulation

*Libraries for JSON data manipulating with Fortran language.*

- FSON - Fortran 95 JSON Parser.
- json-fortran - A Fortran 2008 JSON API.

## XML Manipulation

*Libraries for XML data manipulating with Fortran language.*

- fox - Fortran XML library
- xml-fortran - an all-Fortran solution for reading and writing XML files.

## Date and time manipulation

*Libraries for date and time manipulation with Fortran language.*

- datetime-fortran - A Fortran 2003 date and time manipulation library, modeled after Python's datetime library.

## Testing

*Libraries for testing codebases and generating test data.*

- FRUIT - FORTRAN Unit Test Framework, written in FORTRAN 95
- Ftunit - Fortran unit testing framework by Arjen Markus
- pFUnit - Unit testing framework for Fortran with MPI extensions by developers from NASA and NGC TASC. Uses parallel codes and object-oriented design.
- Vegetables - For a healthier code base, eat your vegetables

## Encoding-Decoding

*Libraries for encoding and decoding data with Fortran language.*

- BeFoR64 - Base64 encoding/decoding library for FoRtran poor men. A KISS library for base64 encoding/decoding for modern (2003+) Fortran projects.

## Portability enabling

*Libraries for enabling codes portability.*

- PENF - Pure Fortran (2003+) library for ensuring codes portability.

## Command-Line parsing

*Libraries for parsing command-line and building user interfaces.*

- FLAP - Fortran command Line Arguments Parser for poor men. A KISS library for building easily nice Command Line Interfaces (CLI) for modern (2003+) Fortran projects.
