I have been working on porting many packages which I will organize into various groups. All of the following packages are linked with more detail [here](https://github.com/bponsler/ros2-support). Some of the packages were ported merely to a compiling state and have not been properly tested.
As recommended by @allenh1 and OSRF, I plan to submit upstream PRs for each of these packages in the coming days.
- [urg_node](https://github.com/bponsler/urg_node/tree/ros2-devel) (also see [this conversation](https://discourse.ros.org/t/is-there-a-urg-node-package-in-ros2/2223/3))
I am in process of combining my own changes with those of @allenh1 so these link to the (soon to be) combined repos.
**rqt (and other) packages:**
I was looking to see the level of difficulty of getting rqt tools working and ported all the packages necessary to get rqt_dep to an initial working state.
I've also been porting [rviz](https://github.com/bponsler/rviz/tree/ros2-devel). My approach is not as thoughtful as @wjwwood's approach: I removed all plugins and am adding them back in one at a time. So far I have: tf, map, and laser scan to some level of functionality.
One of my main motivation in doing this was to avoid needing to publish OccupancyGrid's through the ros1_bridge.
