JCGO (pronounced as "j-c-go") translates (converts) programs written in Java into platform-independent C code that can be compiled (by third-party tools) into highly-optimized native code for the target platform. JCGO is a powerful solution that enables your desktop, server-side, embedded, mobile, and wireless Java applications to take full advantage of the underlying hardware. In addition, JCGO makes your programs, when compiled to native code, as hard to reverse engineer as if they were written in C/C++. The JCGO translator uses some optimization algorithms that allow, together with optimizations performed by a C compiler, the resulting executable code to reach better performance compared with the traditional Java implementations (based on the Just-In-Time technology). The produced executable does not contain nor require a Java Virtual Machine to execute, so its resource requirements are smaller than that required by a typical Java VM. This also simplifies the process of deployment and distribution of an application.
Python Packager is a Web application that converts Python source code into stand-alone applications for Windows and Linux. Python Packager creates a portable exe, a portable directory, and an installer for Microsoft Windows. Python Packager also creates portable files, portable directories, and DEB and RPM pacakges for Linux. Other features include analysis of the source code using linting tools, adding licensing terms to the code, and automatic generation of documentation. Python Packager is similar to tools such as Py2Exe, PyInstaller, cx_Freeze, and bbFreeze. Python Packager simply uses existing tools "under the hood". It does not claim to add any extra features which can be achieved with existing tools. It builds Python executables on Linux and Windows using PyInstaller (much like Py2Exe). It also uses PyLint to analyse the source code. It documents code with epydoc.
capistrano-typo3-cms is an extension for the deployment tool Capistrano. It facilitates the deployment of TYPO3 CMS projects. This tool is only tested on Unix based systems. A German introduction is available. It includes the following additional packages: capistrano, capistrano-ext, and railsless-deploy.
LASIC is a language that facilitates creating and managing systems in a cloud environment. It allows you to create scripts that describe a system, its components, and the relationship between those components using a declarative syntax. Various verbs can then be applied to the script such as deploy (create a new system), shutdown, or runAction(run some action on components of the system). LASIC currently supports Amazon's cloud environment (AWS). LASIC stands for Language for Automating Systems in the Cloud.
sydep is a tool for simple deployment over rsync. In combination GIT it is very powerful instrument. It provides three actions: init, push, and pull. init creates config files for sydep in the current directory. These are sydep.cfg, which contains connection details, and .sydepignore, which specifies files to ignore. push uploads files from the working directory to the server. pull downloads existing files from the server. It downloads only those files which are already in the working directory.
