LibreDWG was based on LibDWG (, which is written with variable names, documentation and comments in Esperanto.

There are also cmdline tools and libraries to read and write DWG files, with converters for various formats: DXF, DXFB, SVG, PS, JSON
and a SaveAs functionality, to convert between the various DWG versions.
It can read all DWG and ascii DXF formats, write r1.1-r2000 DWG, write r11-r2021 ascii DXF (binary not yet). It supports much more object types than any other free DWG library.
