RIFE offers an alternative approach to web application development and design. It builds upon the Java platform, but offers all required tools and APIs to implement and perform all common Web site related tasks in a fast, intuitive, and consistent manner. RIFE is composed out of a large collection of modular parts, including a Web application engine, integrated Web continuations, a customizable multi-format template engine, support for template content transformation, and more.
JHighlight is an embeddable Java syntax highlighting library that supports Java, Groovy, C++, HTML, XHTML, XML, and LZX languages and outputs to XHTML. The library can be used in several ways: embedded into another tool (for instance a blog or forum), through the command-line to generate highlighted files locally, or as a servlet filter to highlight source files on your server on-the- fly. It also supports RIFE templates tags and highlights them clearly so that you can easily identify the difference between your RIFE markup and the actual marked up source.
The Schily Source Package System (SPS) is a source-based packaging system that is developed for SchilliX (a OpenSolaris-based Unix distribution) but is highly portable and works on many operating systems. It "boots" from a single 10kb shell script and creates all needed binaries from scratch. In contrast to other similar systems, it is modular and reusable. It is based on the Schily Makefilesystem and smake.
The Heirloom Bourne Shell is a portable variant of the traditional Unix shell. It is especially suitable for testing the portability of shell scripts and for processing legacy scripts. The Bourne shell does not provide as many features as newer Unix shells, but it does provide a stable shell language. With this in mind, it is also suitable for general script processing and interactive use. This variant of the Bourne shell has been derived from OpenSolaris code and thus provides the SVR4/SVID3 level of the shell.
SchilliX is an OpenSolaris-based live CD and distribution that is intended to help people discover OpenSolaris. When installed on a hard drive, it also allows developers to develop and compile code in a pure OpenSolaris environment. SchilliX tries to be as Sun Solaris compatible as possible and to be the optimum development platform for Solaris and OpenSolaris.
The Heirloom Documentation Tools provide troff, nroff, and related utilities to format manual pages and other documents for output on terminals and printers. They are portable and enhanced versions of the respective OpenSolaris utilities, which descend from ditroff and the historical Unix troff. troff provides advanced typographical features such as kerning, tracking, and hanging characters. It can access PostScript Type 1, OpenType, and TrueType fonts directly. Internationalized hyphenation, international paper sizes, and UTF-8 input are supported.
BeleniX is a distribution based on the version of OpenSolaris that runs on x86 machines. It comes as a live CD and includes all of the OpenSolaris components (core kernel, libraries, and utilities) and also includes additional GNU/OSS software. BeleniX is a full fledged OS distribution that can be installed and used as a regular desktop system.
The Heirloom Development Tools provide yacc, lex, m4, make, and SCCS as portable derivatives of the utilities released by Sun as part of OpenSolaris. The OpenSolaris utilities were in turn derived from the original Unix versions, and are assumed be conforming implementations of the POSIX standard.
