KaarPux is aimed at developers who want to build and explore a Linux distribution where they have complete control over the build process. The build process, as well as each package, are described in simple "YAML" files, which are then transformed into shell scripts used to build KaarPux.
RecDB is a recommendation engine built entirely inside PostgreSQL 9.2. It allows application developers to build recommendation applications using a wide variety of built-in recommendation algorithms such as user-user collaborative filtering, item-item collaborative filtering, and singular value decomposition. Applications powered by RecDB can produce online and flexible personalized recommendations to end-users. It is easily used and configured and allows novice developers to define a variety of recommenders that fits their application's needs in few lines of SQL. It can seamlessly integrate recommendation functionality with traditional database operations.

Open School Admin (OSA) is a Web-based school administration system primarily focused on ease of use and access to school information. It has been in continuous use and development for the past 7 years. It manages all aspects of school administration: student enrollment, class scheduling, mark reporting, attendance, user accounts, and room booking. Through the use of various plugins, it also manages email announcements (including automated attendance notices), government reporting, dorm room management, Alumni relations, etc. It is a standalone application written using a Perl/MySQL back end. It requires a Web server (Apache/Lighttpd tested) and should run out of the box on any Unix system. While OSA itself is very mature, the installation and setup is still a young and evolving process.
glNetViz is a tool for visualizing computer network topologies with WebGL. With the abilities of real time visualizing network traffics flowing around the local network and to/from the Internet, you can manage the various network more easily and efficiently. glNetViz is intended to be a convenient tool that can easily visualize the network topology from the serialized data in YAML or JSON.
