OTRS is a platform independent Web-based help desk system that supports service organization of any kind (e.g. IT service, customer and technical product service, complaint management, public services, etc.) to increase their efficiency. It increases transparency as well as service quality and lowers your total cost of ownership. It has been certified ITIL V3 compatible by PinkVERIFY for incident, problem, change, service asset and configuration, request fulfillment, and knowledge management. Other ITIL processes like service catalog and service level management are supported as well.
PhpPeanuts is a framework for developing database-backed applications in PHP. Rather than building an application from the bottom up, you initially only build domain model classes in which you specify properties, relationships, and database table names in metadata. The framework dynamically scaffolds getters and setters, persistency, navigation over relations, and input and delete validation. The abstract user interface instantly offers a rich set of pages for searching, browsing, drilling down, editing and reporting over your domain model. From there on you extend and refine both the domain model and the user interface to make it what you want by defining specialization classes and overriding inherited methods.
Taolin is a Web desktop that consists of a personal dashboard customizable by adding micro-applications called widgets. Each widget offers a different service that can be provided as a view over internal services or repositories (e.g. access to a papers repository), as a communication service (e.g. Jabber Web chat), or as an external resource (e.g. Google search).
Archipel is a solution to manage and supervise virtual machines. No matter if you have a few locally on your computer or thousands through data centers, Archipel is a central solution to manage them all. You can use all libvirt-supported virtualization engines like KVM, Xen, OpenVZ, or VMWare. You can perform all basic virtualization commands and many other things like live migration, VMCasts, packages, etc. Archipel uses XMPP for all communication. There is no Web service or custom protocol. You just need at least one XMPP server, like eJabberd, to start playing with it. This allows Archipel to work completely in real time. You never have to refresh the user interface. You'll be notified as soon as something happens. You can even use your favorite chat clients to command your infrastructure. You can open a chat conversation with your virtual machine and say things like "How are you today?" or "Hey, please reboot."
JAML (Java Application Markup Language) is a library for easier development of Java applications. It does this by allowing a declarative XML-based design of user interfaces. Although targeting the Java Swing Framework, it is extensible to initialize practically every Java object. A key aspect of the technology is the reduced complexity of JAML as opposed to the standard Java syntax.
Qute is a text editor with Markdown and TeX support. It offers per-paragraph previews so users can switch between editing the source and viewing a rich text rendering with typeset formulas for each paragraph separately. To make looking at a single text file for hours appealing, Qute offers switchable themes with subtle background images and font effects and includes a couple of great Open Source fonts which are a joy to work with. Qute's user interface is distraction-free and offers a full-screen mode. In this sense, it is similar to such great editors as WriteRoom, Dark Room, and WriteMonkey. As far as the themes are concerned, however, Qute is far more adventurous. Qute reads and writes plain text files using the Markdown markup language for rich text formatting and TeX syntax for formulas. Paragraphs are separated by blank lines. While it is possible to edit arbitrary text files with Qute, editing (for example) source code is not what Qute is intended for. Instead, Qute is a tool for writing prose. Qute is built using Web technologies. In particular, it uses Chromeless, Showdown, and MathJax.
