grindr is a set of various utilities to enhance Web productivity. It provides tools to interact with Web sites, RSS feeds, and instant messaging. Munchr is a simple RSS parser which can collect data from restricted Web sites, and this data is routed to nbox. nbox is a small GUI display for all collected information. Posting information is done by feedr, which takes a set of parameters and values and submits it to the appropriate Web service. gaskr provides a GUI to prepare data for feedr. Initial configuration for gaskr is prepared by bildr, which can log onto sites and scrape all form data from HTML content.
smupcheck, which stands for Smart Update Checker, checks Web sites for updates automatically, even if they don't offer an RSS feed. It is a very basic tool, and does not offer advanced features such as checking password-protected Web sites, highlighting changes, or filtering results.
Werc is a minimalistic RESTful Web application framework and content management system. It follows the Unix "tool philosophy" and it is designed to be fast, simple, convenient, and easily extensible. It handles both small and big sites and has a flexible system for user and group permissions. All data is stored in plain text files that can be easily manipulated with standard tools, without using any databases or other external dependencies. Existing applications include a blogging engine with RSS/Atom feeds, a wiki system that can easily integrate pre-existing documents (can be enabled for any directory tree), and others.
uWiki is a minimalistic wiki engine. All actions are implemented in external scripts. These scripts are wikified, and thus the wiki is extensible by itself. All dynamic access is protected through ACLs. Wiki content and Web content can be mixed in the same directory hierarchy. Markup engines and revision control are plugin-able. Currently, asciidoc as the markup engine and git as the revision control backend are provided. Subdirectories can form independent sub-wikis with own revision control. Features like distributed pages that syncronize between wikis, spam protection, and batch jobs to schedule mirroring of other content (bittorrent, git, rsync, and wget) are in planning.
Vidrate is a tool for allowing multiple people to vote which video files of a database should be kept. This tool can help you to quickly free some space on your file server without specifically asking all the server's users which movies should be kept. The interface also allows you to mark videos as seen and to assign comments. Included is a cron job that periodically scans the video directory for new or deleted videos and also deletes videos that have the required number of votes.
Releaser is a set of scripts to automate and manage the tasks related to software package releases. It is designed to be modular and to make it easy to both select a particular set of actions associated with releases of a particular project (such as changelog generation, uploading of tarballs, posting announcements to mailing lists), and create new actions that integrate seamlessly into the process. Its status is still somewhat experimental, but the most basic functionality is there.
CODESH (COllaborative DEvelopment SHell) is an automatic persistent logbook for sessions of personal command line work. It records what and how is being done, for private use/reuse and for sharing selected parts with collaborators. It is an intelligent shell that automatically logs user's shell sessions. Sessions are uniquely tagged and stored in local or distributed backend repositories (ASCII flat file or Subversion or CVS based) and can be extracted and reproduced at any time by the user who created the session or by collaborators located anywhere in the world.
