Abipy is an open-source library for the analysis of the results produced by ABINIT.
Abipy is written in Python and is designed with the philosophy that you should be able to create simple plots with just a few commands.
C2x is a command-line pre- and post- processor supporting many DFT codes, including Abinit. It can produce output suitable for XCrysden, Vesta, Jmol and other visualisation codes, it performs symmetry analysis using spglib, and it can perform simple input cell transformations and output analysis.
V_Sim visualizes atomic structures such as crystals, grain boundaries and so on (either in .d3 format as defined by F. Lançon, or in plain text format as described in the sample page). The rendering is done in pseudo-3D with colored sphere to represent the atoms. The user can interact through many functions to choose the view, the size of the atoms, their color, the background color, the type of fog...
XCrySDen is a crystalline and molecular structure visualisation program, but its main goal is to be a property analyzer program. It can run on most UNIX platforms, without any special hardware requirements. Special efforts were made to allow for appropriate display of 3D isosurfaces and 2D contours, which can be superimposed on crystalline structure and interactively rotated and manipulated.

EXC is an exciton code working in reciprocal space, frequency domain, and using plane waves basis. Its purpose is to calculate, ab initio, the dielectric and optical properties, like absorption, reflectivity, refraction index, electron and X-ray energy loss, for a large variety of systems, ranging from bulk systems, surfaces, to clusters or atoms (using the supercell method), by solving the Bethe-Salpeter equation.
The DP code is a Linear Response TDDFT code in Frequency Reciprocal space on a PlaneWaves basis.
Yambo is a FORTRAN/C code for Many-Body calculations in solid state and molecular physics. Yambo relies on the Kohn-Sham wavefunctions generated by two DFT public codes: Abinit and PWscf. The code was originally developed in the Condensed Matter Theoretical Group of the Physics Department at the University of Rome "Tor Vergata" by Andrea Marini. Previous to its release under the GPL license, yambo was known as SELF.
