The aim of the PicoForge project (previously known as PicoLibre) is to provide a set of high level libre software applications that are well integrated in order to provide a collaborative "forge". It makes it easy to deploy a collaborative work platform for developing software or hosting other collaborative activities. Having started (as PicoLibre) in an educational context, PicoForge is now a quite generic platform, comparable (but sometimes less advanced) to other *-Forge software platforms. It groups several high-level applications like phpGroupware, Sympa, TWiki, Subversion, and CVS.
KindFTP is meant to be a complete implementation of the FTP protocol, as specified in RFC959. It provides a component that directly exposes the low-level protocol, and it supports the core protocol that is available on most Open Source FTP servers. It has untested support for ACCT, SMNT, REIN, TYPE, STRU, MODE, ALLO, and SITE command. It uses iContract to provide a full formal specification of all software, jUnit for all unit testing, and Ant as a build tool.
Xjob is a GUI task scheduler. The drag-and-drop GUI makes it easy to create and maintain complex job routines, and visualize each job as it is created. Xjob has proven itself under the most rigorous testing scenarios and industry applications. It can handle jobs ranging from simple FTP to integrated deployment of external programs and applications for complex jobs. A typical Xjob process retrieves files from FTP servers and e-mails from POP or IMAP servers. It then processes the files and sends them to a local disk or other servers via FTP or e-mail. Users can schedule multiple processes for Xjob as hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly jobs. It is completely fault tolerant and ensures that valuable data is never lost in the case of unexpected downtime. If any computer shuts down or is unavailable, Xjob's process verification ensures that the job will continue once the host computer is restarted. It runs on all systems that support Java, and provides a Web-based administration interface to monitor and control jobs. A built-in Web server displays statistics for current jobs via the Web.
GNOME Commander is a fast and powerful graphical file manager. It has a "two-pane" interface in the tradition of Norton and Midnight Commander. It features drag'n'drop, GNOME MIME types, FTP, SFTP, and WebDAV using the GnomeVFS FTP module, SAMBA access, the ability to extend the context menu with entries to call external applications or scripts on the selected items, quick device access buttons with automatic mounting and unmounting, a fast file viewer for text and images, a history of recently accessed folders, and folder bookmarks.
NotFTP is a fully-featured and easy-to-use Web-based HTTP-FTP gateway written in PHP. It supports all common FTP functions and allows the administrator to set a maximum transfer size and a daily transfer quota for users. It is particularly well-suited for making FTP accessible to users behind an HTTP-only proxy.
