Werc is a minimalistic RESTful Web application framework and content management system. It follows the Unix "tool philosophy" and it is designed to be fast, simple, convenient, and easily extensible. It handles both small and big sites and has a flexible system for user and group permissions. All data is stored in plain text files that can be easily manipulated with standard tools, without using any databases or other external dependencies. Existing applications include a blogging engine with RSS/Atom feeds, a wiki system that can easily integrate pre-existing documents (can be enabled for any directory tree), and others.
gtkdialog is a GUI creation utility that can be used with an arbitrary interpreter. It enables the programmer to describe a graphical user interface in a simple XML language, and create callbacks with any interpreter that supports either files, standard I/O, or environment variables. It can be called as an external program from the interpreter, but can be used as a stand-alone framework for the application as well. Stand-alone, bash, and awk examples are provided.
pwgrep is a simple password manager that manages a database file using encryption of GnuPG. It uses encryption and version control on all of the passwords that are stored. The password database can be used on several hosts at once with automatic synchronization. Even several users can share the same password database. The versioning system will keep track of who was changing which entries and at which time. The versioning system to use can be configured (and is Subversion by default). Besides passwords, pwgrep can also be used for storing a collection of files like certificates. The file shredding command for secure deleting of temporary files can be configured. A local backup of all database changes is automatically made. It can be used without a GUI (such as through an SSH session).
Scsh is a systems-programming environment for POSIX systems and Win32, embedded in the Scheme programming language. It includes a high-level process notation for writing shell-script like programs, with pipelines and redirections. Scsh additionally provides low-level access to POSIX primitives, plus important non-POSIX extensions such as sockets. Scsh is implemented on top of Scheme48, a portable bytecode implementation of Scheme. A number of user-contributed extensions are available, including an extensible HTTP and FTP server, a socket-level PostgreSQL interface, a programmable text formatting language, and a Postscript generation language.
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Internet is a German introduction to the technical aspects of the Internet. This book explains both the low-level protocols IP, ICMP, TCP, and UDP and the high-level protocols SMTP, POP3, IMAP4, NNTP, HTTP, Gopher, FTP, IRC, DICT, Finger, Daytime, DNS, and Whois.
