Cloud User Shell (cush) is a multi-call executable bringing RESTful cloud control to the command line, combining many useful cloud computing utilities into a single executable. It follows the Unix philosophy of writing components that work together, do one thing and do it well, and communicate over text (HTTP) streams. It is also RESTful, clearly delineating the 3 sides of the REST Triangle: verbs (e.g. GET), nouns (e.g. http://samj.net/), and content types (e.g. text/html).
process-getopt is a wrapper around getopt(1) for bash that allows a developer to define command line options with their descriptions through a single function call. These definitions are then used in runtime processing of command line options as well as in generating help and man pages. This results in more internal consistency in bash scripts, particularly when they are maintained and changed later. It also saves a little time in coding and producing nicely formatted documentation. It is quite similar to GNU's argp in glibc for compiled languages. Samples and a manual are included.
AqMail fetches mails from remote mailboxes (POP3), applies admin-defined filters, and stores the email in local mailboxes for POP3 daemons to serve them. It supports virtual mail domains and users. It has been tested with QMail as the MTA and with Spamassassin and ClamAV as filters.
The goal of XPS is to make programming simpler by raising the level of abstraction without loss of performance. It provides true support for meta-programming and domain specific languages, making it possible to design simple programming languages to match the problem at hand. This is the opposite of current practice which seeks to translate the problem domain down into the low level solution domain of current programming languages.
