ARSCIF is a powerful framework that makes it trivial to use asynchronous remote-script callback invocation (AJAX) techniques. It helps the developer by working out problems such as data and character encoding, concurrency control, browser implementations, and so on, allowing the creation of pages with sophisticated, dynamic features.
Textbender is a system of collaborative writing based on recombinant text. It implements a social Web medium with potential applications ranging from open art to open democracy. The underlying mechanism is evolutionary genetics: the text exists as a population of variants, one per author; authors swap fragments and arrangements of the text, peer to peer; and genes encode a traceable record of authorship throughout. Initial development is aimed at creative works, particularly at short verse and prose.
Brockman is an information radiator for monitoring Ant builds. It is useful for Agile software teams that practice continuous integration. Brockman consists of an Ant listener written in Java that outputs that status of your build in XML, a Freemarker template that specifies the format of the output XML file, and an AJAX front end that renders the XML file.
DutchPIPE allows Web developers to make virtual multi-user "avatar" environments. Each Web page becomes an abstracted environment or location where visitors and other items on the page are visualized. This status is retained as visitors move around. A lot of real-time interaction is possible, resulting in persistent interactive page environments. DutchPIPE uses AJAX and the DOM for the browser, and it works without Java, Flash, plugins, or firewall adjustments.
