IPTEditor intends to ease the task of managing/editing iptables rules. It presents an intuitive graphical interface that organizes iptables tables as tabs of a notebook, each of which, in turn, organizes their chains in notebooks tabs. Each rules tab contains a list made up of rows (rules) or item columns ordered according to their occurrence. The items in the rows can be edited by appropriate forms, such as through dialogs for targets and criteria (modules), edit fields for network addresses, and selection boxes for actions and protocols, among others.
TagEventor is a project to enable radically simple computer usage by creating physical-object-based user interfaces. It does this using commercially available (and relatively cheap), standardized RFID technology in the form of small, simple USB connected contacted card/tag readers and small, cheap tags. The project was started based on products available from the "touchatag" company, which has clients for Windows and Mac, and run their own Web service to enable many interesting Web-based applications. However, no simple, lightweight Linux client was available, and the Web focus meant that some client-focused functionality was not possible. The software is currently a daemon that monitors the presence of one or more RFID tags on a connected reader and generates "system events" when tags are placed on it or removed from it.
neko-install-cd is a development tool for modifying System Rescue CD images. It can also perform many other operations. It has a simple interface with excellent inline help. Operations it can perform include: booting your modified image in a virtual machine, burning the original or modified image to a USB drive, creating patch sets from your modifications (using aufs or built-in helper scripts). All of these operations can be performed directly from your Linux distribution, without having to first boot into the system rescue CD as with the system rescue CD equivalents.
The overall objective of the XtreemOS project is the design, implementation, evaluation, and distribution of a grid operating system (called XtreemOS) with native support for virtual organizations (VO). XtreemOS is capable of running on a wide range of underlying platforms, from clusters to mobiles. It is based on Mandriva Linux, with support to come for other distributions later.
topvhost is a curses-based display of virtual host activity on a Web server. The display is created by monitoring a collection of server log files to show update time, update count, and selected fields from the last record of each file in a top-like presentation which can be sorted by last update time, update count, or domain name. Log file format and display columns are configured using an extension of the Apache LogFormat syntax. The collection of associations between domain name and log file is specified either by direct enumeration or a file system glob() pattern in those cases where the domain name is part of the log file path. These details are saved in an INI format configuration file in the user's home directory.
