    Layout Library (Eve)

    Eve is broken up into two distinct pieces: the parser and the
    engine. Note that both components exist completely independently of
    each other, though they are built in a way that they bind together
    easily. We will discuss both components in turn. There is also a
    third component, referred to herein as the assemblage code, which is
    the client-specified code that binds the parser to the engine.

Seems like a library plus some other significant parts.
