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.
jminix is a simple embeddable restful JMX console. It is useful for when you don't want to use an external full-blown JMX console, but just want to have a simple JMX entry point into your new or existing apps. Embedding JMiniX in a Web app is done simply by declaring a servlet. Deployed as a servlet, it benefits from your Web application configuration such as filters or security constraints.
PirateWall is a simple Twitter Client. It displays search results for a certain keyword or hashtag in realtime in a shell-based environment. It can also be configured to act as a data provider for many different visualization tools. For example, it is possible to use the client as a text generator for many XScreensaver applications like "apple2" or "starwars". When used in a Unix shell environment, colorized output can be generated.
