topvhost is a curses-based display of virtual host activity on a Web server. The display is created by monitoring a collection of server log files to show update time, update count, and selected fields from the last record of each file in a top-like presentation which can be sorted by last update time, update count, or domain name. Log file format and display columns are configured using an extension of the Apache LogFormat syntax. The collection of associations between domain name and log file is specified either by direct enumeration or a file system glob() pattern in those cases where the domain name is part of the log file path. These details are saved in an INI format configuration file in the user's home directory.
Unhide.rb finds hidden processes on your system. It looks for active processes in many different ways. Processes found by some means but not others are considered to be "hidden", and are reported to the user. Unhide.rb is a Ruby rewrite of the original Unhide, which was written in C. Unhide.rb performs the same checks as the original, but is 10 times faster in only half as much code, and has better diagnostics when hidden processes are found.
Boscli is a framework to create interactive command line interfaces. It is meant to help developers write interactive shells for domain specific tasks. It provides an easy way to wrap and join together command line apps and utilities and create specific shells with security levels and modes, history, auto-completion, and so on. Using this framework any developer can build an interactive command line interface for configuration or monitor an appliance in a few minutes. Boscli can be used as a "glue code" for an appliance's interface or to create a "homogeneous" administration interface for different systems and applications.

terminal_colors is a tool to display a terminal color chart for 8, 16, 88, and 256 color terminals. It provides all the functionality of the various similar scripts found around the Web with some additional bells and whistles. It automatically detects 8, 16, 88, and 256 color capabilities (via ncurses) and displays the appropriate color charts. It can display the colors as blocks or (2D) cubes, optionally with color values overlaid in int or hex values. It can show the full rgb text string as well. It can also show the display with a vertical (default) or horizontal orientation. It has the option of additional padding and supports -h --help as well. It also works as a utility for converting between 256 and 88 color values.
