Open School Admin (OSA) is a Web-based school administration system primarily focused on ease of use and access to school information. It has been in continuous use and development for the past 7 years. It manages all aspects of school administration: student enrollment, class scheduling, mark reporting, attendance, user accounts, and room booking. Through the use of various plugins, it also manages email announcements (including automated attendance notices), government reporting, dorm room management, Alumni relations, etc. It is a standalone application written using a Perl/MySQL back end. It requires a Web server (Apache/Lighttpd tested) and should run out of the box on any Unix system. While OSA itself is very mature, the installation and setup is still a young and evolving process.
QuickQWERTY is a touch typing tutor. It can be used to train your fingers to type without looking at the keys.

JS Measurer measures a webpage's width and height interactively. It lets the user define an area in the page by dragging the mouse pointer. The object renders the area outline as the mouse moves, showing the width and height of the area in pixels, as well the coordinates of the top-left corner of the area. A bookmarklet is also available, so this object can be used as a link placed, for instance, in the browser toolbar.
"fgallery" is a static photo gallery generator with no frills that has a stylish, minimalist look. It shows your photos, and nothing else. There is no server-side processing, only static generation. The resulting gallery can be uploaded anywhere without additional requirements and works with any modern browser.
hulk is a usable in-browser HTML editor. Running $.hulk with some options will insert a pretty JSON editor into the div with the id "selector". You can then edit the document at your leisure, in text input boxes instead of as JSON. This makes it easy for programmers and non-technical people to collaborate on configuration. Hulk is also smart about detecting your input (if it's large, use a textarea, if it looks like a number, convert it to a number, etc.).
PHP Image Viewer is a one-file image browser and viewer for your Web site. It has a full-screen master/detail interface, with the file listing on the left side of the browser window. The image viewer area has a black background for contrast. It will display the image file selected in the left pane. After 15 seconds of idle time, the file list area will be hidden to allow more space for the image viewing area. Clicking on the image will toggle the size display from a “fit to window” mode into full-size 100% zoom mode. In full-size mode, you can use the arrow keys to scroll around the image.
