Fileevent is a rules-based utility that matches files based on simple patterns and macros and performs actions on them. These actions are typically used to transfer or rename the file ready for further processing. This utility is particularly useful for batch processing environments where files to load/process might arrive on an adhoc basis. Fileevent allows them to be transferred elsewhere, retrieved from elsewhere, or renamed.
Code Manager 2 (CM2) has been designed to provide a complete source code control system for a set of developers sharing the same working directory tree. It offers developers and organizations many advantages. It provides a comprehensive set of features and has been designed to be very easy to pick up and use to manage projects. It works across Unix and Windows platforms, requiring little configuration and only a limited number of dependencies. It provides facilities at both an individual source file level and project level. The project level facilities include facilities to copy or merge whole projects or generate and apply change-sets. It uses an efficient repository format to handle large files and large numbers of files and directories. It provides facilities to generate packages from the project in a number of formats (including TP2, Slackware, APT, RPM, Autopackage, SVR4, and InstallP).
startvnc.pl is a script to start VNC on a system-determined port. Placed in /etc/skel/bin/ or the like, it allows each user to start VNC on his own port without having to guess or use trial-an-error on which port he should use. Based on his numerical ID (from /etc/password), this script autogenerates a static port number which should not change.
SHA_HTTP_Auth is a Perl module which allows secure HTTP Authentication using salted password hashes stored in MySQL or another database. Since (presumably) all Web traffic is wrapped in SSL and the passwords themselves are not plaintext, HTTP Basic Authentication is all that's needed to ensure secure Web logins to a protected site. Furthermore, since the user is authenticated by the Web server at layer 4, the need for session cookies is eliminated.
Drupal is a modular content management system, forum, blogging and community engine. It is database driven and can be used with MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, and SQLite. Its features include (but are not limited to) discussion forums, Web-based administration, theme support, a submission queue, content rating, content versioning, taxonomy support, user management with a fine-grained permission system based on user roles (groups), error logging, support for content syndication, locale support, and much more. It is considered to be an excellent platform for developers due to its clean code and extensibility, and it can also be used as a Web application framework.
The program arbtt, the automatic rule-based time tracker, allows you to investigate how you spend your time, without having to manually specify what you are doing. arbtt records which windows are open and active, and provides you with a powerful rule-based language to afterwards categorize your work.
TYPO3 CMS is a Web Content Management System which features automatic creation of navigational menus, headlines, and other dynamic graphical elements, automatic conversion and scaling of images, the ability to present different templates based on variables such as client browser or country code, support for multiple templates on a site, and a built-in password-protection option. Pages can be timed to be shown on a certain date, be hidden on a certain date or just temporarily hidden. TYPO3 supports search in SQL-databases and redesigning of a website at once is just a matter of creating a single new template.
