TIA is an ncurses-based console IDE for GCC, G++, Java, Perl, PHP, BASH, BUSH, HTML, and GNAT (Ada 95). It has integrated support for CVS, SVN, and ncurses compatible mice. Features include a ddd-style console debugger, automatic spelling correction, keyword hilighting, project statistics, automatic backups, and keyboard macros. The project window controls optimization and debug settings all in one place. TIA supports make, cook, and gnatmake project builders. For large projects, each user has a separate preference file.
GeeXboX is a standalone media player Linux distribution, similar to MoviX. It's a small bootable CD that allows you to play your favorite video (DivX, XviD, H.264, MPEG 1/2, VCD, DVD, OggMedia, Windows Media, RealMedia, etc.) and audio (MP3, Audio CD, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, MPC, etc.) files. It also supports networking, and is able to play media from Windows/Samba share, NFS, UPnP A/V Media Servers, RTP/RTSP servers, or SHOUTcast. It supports TV-out, TV tuners, DVB cards, and WiFi cards. It is based on MPlayer, and can be used on any x86, x86_64, or PowerPC computer. It's easy to modify the source to build your own GeeXboX or use an alternative boot method.
The GUIShell project is a collection of utilities facilitating the use of the GTK+ toolkit in shell scripts through the gtkshell utility. The ACE configuration environment provides sample scripts utilizing gtkshell for desktop utilities. rootcat provides the ability to display messages to the root window using Xft, allowing one to write status display scripts.
RPSL (Rapid Prototyping Shared Library) is a set of bash scripts and utility files that coordinate the GNU autotools and pkg-config for C/C++ build automation. The scripts and procedures define a system for building and linking that supports an individual or small group. A single command (rpslSyncBuild) scans for source, writes a Makefile.am and Configure.ac, and produces a conventional autotools tree ready for the usual "configure, make, make install" build steps.
DOMjudge is an automated judgement system to run programming contests. It provides a mechanism to submit problem solutions and interfaces for teams, the jury, and the general public. It is lightweight, and depends on standard software to do its task. It has a Web interface for portability and simplicity. It is scalable, so distributed judging is easy. There is a modular system for plugging in languages and compilers. It features rejudging, clarifications, and detailed submission/judging info.
The Mknew Project is an investigation of how to build simple Unix shell scripts to manage common development and administrative tasks. The emphasis is on using languages and tools that already exist and are in common use. A related emphasis is on exploring the functional programming nature of the bash shell. This is accomplished by using the bash function capability, and using the bash "$(" ")"syntax to delay function execution in bash scripts. This allows building scripts that have a LISP-like function syntax that permits shell scripts to be written as a series of function calls with minimal syntax. The goal is to provide a way to specify make procedures of heterogeneous components in a bash script. These can include diverse source code languages, documentation text, test procedures, and data. In addition to the mknew function library (mklib), these "make" procedures rely only on capabilities provided by the bash shell, and common Unix command line utilities.
Crucible provides a powerful, flexible backend for building automated testing systems. It allows for conducting tests on multiple machines (via NFS), including patching, rebuilding, and booting new kernels, libraries, and services. Configuration and customization can be done through simple config files and bash scripts. It is suitable for performing tests of GUI applications, services, libraries, and kernel patches.
