Kwatee Agile Deployment is a lightweight automated server software deployment tool targeted at Independent Software Vendors and Cloud Service Providers. Designed for the flexible needs of agile teams, Kwatee installs or updates PHP sites, Java Web apps, Windows services, n-tier applications, etc. in your local network or in the cloud and on virtually any operating system. It shortens software update delivery projects by an order of magnitude but also benefits developers, testers, and technical support in their daily activities.
Tiny Tcl 6.8 is a rommable, minimal Tcl implementation for embedded applications. Derived from the venerable Tcl 6.7 release, Tiny Tcl 6.8 has a solid Tcl feature set, excluding newer capabilities of Tcl 7 and 8 such as the bytecode compiler, namespaces, sockets, and async event handling, among others. Excluding C library functions, Tiny Tcl compiles down to less than 60 Kbytes on most machines, far smaller than any Tcl 7 or Tcl 8 derivatives.
The CPAN shell (and module) automates or at least simplifies the building and installation of Perl modules and extensions. It includes some primitive searching capabilities and knows how to use Net::FTP, LWP, and certain external download clients to fetch distributions from the Internet. Then it automatically tests and installs them and their dependencies.
HAL/C++ is a library using dbusmm to access the HAL daemon. The library is not a wrapper around libhal and libhal-storage, but rather a reimplementation using dbusmm to communicate with the HAL daemon. Even though it is modeled after the official libhal and libhal-storage, it does not aim at complete adherance to the original API. The library is application-oriented, so for now, features that would only be useful to system-level applications or daemons, or HAL addons, are not being implemented. However, some of these features are mostly conveniences in the original libhal, and can be emulated even with the existing API.
Module::Build is a system for building, testing, and installing Perl modules. It is meant to be an alternative to ExtUtils::MakeMaker. Developers may alter the behavior of the module through subclassing in a much more straightforward way than with EU::MM. It also does not require a 'make' on your system: most of the Module::Build code is pure Perl and written in a very cross-platform way. In fact, you don't even need a shell, so even platforms like Mac OS (traditional) can use it fairly easily.
Jupidator is a framework to automate the updating procedure of an application. It can be used on all major platforms. It makes it easy to integrate the self-update feature to any program in any language. It has various levels of file description granularity, and the developer can work with file groups or even single files, while keeping track of the change-log in a user friendly manner. It is based on XML for describing files and Swing or a console to display visuals.
Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design. TurnKey Django is an appliance that just works, with no configuration required.
