log4bash facilitates creating easy to read and easy to parse log files from your bash scripts. Developers have the ability to override pretty much all of the default behavior. If the developer chooses to let a user do so, they can pass flags to a script at run time to control some aspects of the logging output. This includes displaying the logging output to the screen in addition to the log file, and altering the logging level. There is a script included (test.log4bash.sh) that provides working code on how to use all of log4bash's features.

Nextls is a console application that keeps track of your music collection using a MySQL database to store information such as length, bitrate, metadata, and where on the hard drive it is located. When Nextls is launched, it will figure out any changes done since the previous run and update the database accordingly. The database is very simple to work with, and there also exists a sister project in Nx2 that will allow you to take your database online and stream your music from a Web browser.
When writing anything that needs to communicate with a terminal in some way, it is almost always speaking some dialect of VT100 or ANSI. The libvt 100 library aims solely at parsing a stream of VT100/ANSI data and then letting the host application do the rendering. Many other projects also parse VT100/ANSI data, but their parser is always tangled up with the actual rendering of the data, making reuse in other projects problematic. The hope is that other projects will start using libvt100 and everyone can stop reinventing the wheel with each project.
