The "Sound of Sorting" is a demo program containing many integer sorting algorithms. The algorithms are visualized in real time and augmented with sound effects, which are based on the values being compared. Animation speed and sound sustain can be customized while the algorithm is running. The visualization also highlights the algorithm's internal workings, which makes the demo program very useful for teaching sorting algorithms in an undergraduate computer science course. The program also counts the number of comparisons done by an algorithm, which can then be compared to the analytically derived value. The demo is implemented using the cross-platform toolkits wxWidgets and SDL, and can be executed on Windows, Linux, and Mac.
Freedomotic is an open, flexible, scalable, mashup-oriented software system which can interact with well-known standard building automation protocols and with "do-it-yourself" solutions. It treats the Web, social networks, and frontends just like any other sensor or actuator in your automation system. For example, you can tweet your washing machine to start the washing cycle. Freedomotic leverages modern enterprise integration patterns and distributed computing architectures, along with cross-language APIs for extensions.
code2flow is an experimental script which sweeps through your project source code, looking for function definitions, then does another sweep, looking for where those functions are called. It connects the dots and presents you with a flowchart estimating the functional structure of your program. It is especially useful for untangling spaghetti code and getting new developers up to speed. code2flow is experimental and meant to provide a rough overview of the structure of simple projects. Source code which is just a little esoteric will break this. Even with normal code, there are many known limitations and many outright bugs.
BGPHist is a tool that receives MP-BGP updates, decodes them, and writes them to a database for logging and monitoring purposes. It supports not only Internet routes, but also IPv4 VPN, IPV6 VPN, and L2VPN. It sounds text output, MySQL databases, and Oracle databases. For the MySQL backend, there is also a simple PHP frontend. It could be used to monitor and log an ISP's customer activity for Internet and VPNs, as a passive BGP looking glass, or as a backend for some external monitoring and accounting system.
springclean is a command line tool for cleaning up log files. It can select files based on name (exact or regex), age, or a combination of both. You can preview changes, and confirm before running each action. For each action you can find how much disk space has been freed, compress, move to another directory or remove your files, and create an audit trail with syslog.
MockMockWeb is a Heroku-ready Node.js-based Web application server which allows you to mock up a website in seconds. It allows you to instantly launch a website which sends an empty page (with status 200) to any request/URL and edit any page on the spot. You can also edit the layout shared throughout your website. It lets you build a mock (sometimes real) website in a request-driven interaction.
ecca-proxy is a Web proxy server that transparently handles Eccentric Authentication key and certificate management. Eccentric Authentication is a protocol designed to make using client certificates easy, secure, and private. The proxy handles the difficult cryptographic details and provides an easy to use interface to the user.
CWIS (Collection Workflow Integration System) is a software package designed to help assemble, organize, and share information about resources online. The software conforms to international and academic standards for metadata while providing turnkey setup and a user-friendly interface, allowing resource collection developers (and end users) to focus on what they want to share (or find) without worrying about the technical details. It provides extensive support for cataloging resources with standardized metadata, which can then be automatically shared via an array of channels out to the larger Internet community, helping others find your work.
