openFoam had a GUI in previous models called foamx but now descritizer can be assumed as a GUI for openFoam hardly!

What's wrong with Emacs? The most flexible GUI on earth for editing OF-parameter files. Meshing is a bit harder

Seriously: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/GUI might be a start (if you find anything else be so nice and extend it)

Emacs ist the perfect GUI for almost everything except gaming (if you can't do it in Emacs then it IS gaming): http://tinyurl.com/6ehbn45

But I didn't know this specific manifestation. Cool

I use Komodo Edit for editing.

I just create a komodo project in the case folder and then every case file is just a click away.

Works with Windows, Mac and Linux. And its a free download.

Greetings to all!

@Devanson: the Discretizer package has two GUI applications:
  • Discretizer: dedicated for drawing the geometry and meshing it using Discretizer's meshing techniques.
  • Discretizer::Setup or Discretizer-Setup: dedicated to pre-processing and running cases. I'm not sure what are the current limitations, but last time I checked, it still wasn't fully operational.
Browse http://www.discretizer.org and watch the various screen casts available there, to get a better notion of what you can do with it.

As for other GUI's for OpenFOAM, you better search this forum for the keywords "GUI OpenFOAM" and also "Discretizer" for more about it. There are a few other GUI's out there, some paid, some free, but I don't know if there is any that can fully explore OpenFOAM's capabilities.
So sooner or later, you'll need to go down to the terminal and use your favourite text editor (not word processor) to modify and run your cases. This is why many of the replies where "text editor" related .

edit: I didn't know about this, but there is already a compiled list at openfoamwiki.net: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/GUI

Best regards,
Bruno
