flashrd creates OpenBSD images tailored for embedded hardware devices and for executing from a virtualized environment. It installs a complete OpenBSD system with "one-touch" upgrade capability. It boots from a ramdisk to make in-place upgrades easy and complete. flashrd partitions for read-only operation by default, to minimize flash wear.
Shell Script Loader is a framework (in a helper script) that can be used by shell-script-based applications for easy including or loading of co-shell-scripts or subscripts. With this utility, scripters may now be able to apply multi-file or module-oriented scripting or programming in shells just like the way they are always done in known languages like Perl, PHP, and Ruby. The provided functions are load(), include(), and call() with the extended versions loadx(), includex(), and callx(). The extended versions can accept glob patterns and regular expressions. Shell Script Loader supports many shells including the very old ones like bash, zsh, ksh, pdksh, sh, ash, dsh, and all shells based on the original sh. Scripts made with Shell Script Loader may also be compiled to form a single script. A generic compiler written in awk is already available.
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.
zrep provides an easy-to-use program to manage zfs filesystem replication and failover. No configuration files are required. The program is developed under Solaris, but may work with any up to date zfs implementation. The executable is a single script. Initialization does a full data copy, but subsequent syncs are incrementals. It uses internal locking to make sure there is no danger of overlap if you just shove it in cron to run every minute. Design target is more "near-time replication", since the sync can be run every minute or more. However, it could conceivably be used for "backup" purposes as well.
