chilon::parser provides an extended PEG-like language using C++0x template meta-programming. This PEG-based language has been extended to support AST building features directly embedded into the type system. chilon::parser uses the input PEG to create the AST type at compile time using tuples, vectors, variants, custom classes, ranges, and primitive types. The AST is populated by parsers generated from the same type description at run-time.
Backshift is a deduplicating (variable-sized, content-based blocks), compressing (xz or bz2) backup program. Full saves and incrementals are pretty indistinct other than the amount of data transmitted, somewhat like with "rsync --link-dest" but without the huge number of hardlinks. It also de-duplicates large file content at a granularity of about 2 megabytes on average; there tends to be a unique copy of each file with size less than around 2 megabytes on average.
nyu is a combination of modern academic approaches to parsing formal grammars from PEGs and expression grammars that represents the new state of the art in parser generators. nyu grammars are written in a powerful language based on PEGs (parsing expression grammars) but with modifications to allow both the AST and the parser to be specified intuitively in a single grammar. nyu outputs parsers that take advantage of the chilon::parser meta-programming library for C++. The generated parsers are almost as concise and readable as the input grammars, yet perform as well as hand-written C code. nyu ASTs are built using tuples, variant types, and lists, and allow self referential parsers and AST nodes to be manipulated. Advanced features such as hashed containers and grammar inheritance are also possible and well tested. nyu is currently powerful enough to deal with complex grammars and bootstraps its own parser.
neko-install-cd is a development tool for modifying System Rescue CD images. It can also perform many other operations. It has a simple interface with excellent inline help. Operations it can perform include: booting your modified image in a virtual machine, burning the original or modified image to a USB drive, creating patch sets from your modifications (using aufs or built-in helper scripts). All of these operations can be performed directly from your Linux distribution, without having to first boot into the system rescue CD as with the system rescue CD equivalents.
Wayland is a protocol for a compositor to talk to its clients, as well as a C library implementation of that protocol. The compositor can be a standalone display server running on Linux kernel modesetting and evdev input devices, an X application, or a wayland client itself. The clients can be traditional applications, X servers (rootless or fullscreen), or other display servers.
Genit is a framework that builds a static Web site, which does not require a server side programming language or database. Generated sites consist only of XHTML code (plus CSS and media). It runs from the command line, is based on XML, and is designed to be simple, readable, and minimalist.
Zyan Communication Framework simplifies development of distributed applications. It works on Windows, Linux, Mac OS, and Android platforms via .NET or Mono runtimes. It features LINQ support for three-tier applications, full duplex TCP support, traffic, compression, and encryption, transparent support for events and EBC (event-based components), and Windows and LDAP authentication support.
Pito is a set of C++0x header libraries to facilitate writing system call interceptor libraries based on LD_PRELOAD wrappers. The program "pito" is also provided for loading Unix commands with such wrappers. This system is capable of passing command line arguments to loaded plugins for easy configuration. Pito is supplied with a powerful system call sandbox library to prevent modifications to supplied filesystem locations and a system call logging library.
