The GUIShell project is a collection of utilities facilitating the use of the GTK+ toolkit in shell scripts through the gtkshell utility. The ACE configuration environment provides sample scripts utilizing gtkshell for desktop utilities. rootcat provides the ability to display messages to the root window using Xft, allowing one to write status display scripts.
MaKL is a simple and light framework for building multi-platform C/C++ projects, purely based on the Bourne Shell and GNU Make. It is much easier to install and use than other typical building systems, while maintaining the essential functionality. It is ideal for embedded systems due to its cross-compilation, multiplatform toolchaining mechanisms, and minimal external dependencies.
The Crossplex package of make macros simplifies the creation of embedded systems, and is powerful enough for large organizations to use for developing elaborate product lines. It allows you to organize many different products under a logical structure, making systems of any complexity easy to specify. When you have many different target platforms, each with multiple different software configurations, Crossplex keeps those configurations from stepping on each other, without requiring redundancy in your source tree. Crossplex allows you to use a single dependency tree encompassing both in-house software and third-party packages, and it is particularly suited to build automation. Crossplex makes it easy to shield your build from the host environment, setting all shell variables explicitly, and giving you complete control over the path that is used at any point in the build. This is nice when you want to support building on a variety of development platforms. Crossplex scales to your needs. You can dabble in the unpacking and patching features as you need them, or you can base your entire system from the ground up on the Crossplex framework. Crossplex supports creation and use of glibc and uClibc toolchains.
Utterson is a static blog engine. It is based on a bunch of shell scripts and a self-generating makefile. Only basic Unix tools have been used (m4, GNU make, ksh93, rsync, ssh, etc.). It comes with emacs integration and support for mailing in blog posts automatically via procmail.
SSLsplit is a tool that performs man-in-the-middle attacks against SSL/TLS encrypted network connections for network forensics and penetration testing. It terminates SSL/TLS and initiates a new connection to the original destination, logging all data transmitted. It supports plain TCP and SSL, HTTP and HTTPS, and IPv4 and IPv6. For SSL and HTTPS, it generates and signs forged X509v3 certificates on-the-fly using the original certificate's subject DN and subjectAltName extension. It supports Server Name Indication, RSA, DSA, and ECDSA keys, and DHE and ECDHE cipher suites. It can also use existing certificates if the private key is available.
