Tartarus is a backup script designed to make backups of dedicated servers easy. It employs a range of standard Unix tools to achieve this goal, to simplify disaster recovery even when only a minimal rescue system is available. Archives can be stored on-the-fly on FTP servers as well as in the local filesystem, while a plugin system allows adaption to a wide range of usage scenarios. The use of LVM snapshots and the creation of differential backups are also included, as is an expire script to remove older archives from an FTP site.
apub is a tool to simplify uploading documents of a site to remote servers. Simply create an XML configuration file containing one or more site definitions, with the local and remote document root. After that, you can upload any file in any of your document roots with one simple command.
TRIXER creates catalogs of transparent file indexes. A transparent file index is an exact mirror of a directory, except that each of its file is void, thus "taking no space", while apparently having the same size of its indexed counterpart so as to describe it fully. This is accomplished by combining sparse files support with fusecompress on-the-fly compression technology. This is useful for many purposes, e.g. creating a catalog of your CD/DVD-ROM library to browse its contents without having to physically access it. The advantage of this software is that a TRIXER catalog is a plain mountable ext2 filesystem, allowing enhanced interoperability with the huge lot of available software to handle the catalog in a number of ways.
Nhopkg is a lightweight and powerful package manager system for Unix-like operating systems. Nhopkg can install, remove, update, search, and manage software packages in its own .nho format. Nhopkg aims to be a universal package manager. Because of this, Nhopkg isn't only a package manager, but is also a set of guidelines to pack up software for any machine. Therefore, to check package dependencies, Nhopkg searches for specific files instead of package names.
