tkpg is a program that provides a GUI front end to Philip Zimmermann's Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) public-key encryption system and also the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG/gpg) implementation. It utilizes the Clipboard Selection heavily to ease moving pgp-processed text both to and from any of your applications (such as mail reader, news reader, and editor). This removes the need to select the output text by hand or by typing in a filename, since it is usually placed in the Selection automatically for you.
Newpods can help you sync recently downloaded podcasts to your portable device. It will look through a directory tree to find podcasts that have been downloaded since the last time the program was run. It will then insert two commands into the bash history list: one to pushd to the podcast directory on your portable device, so you can clean out old files as needed, and one to copy the new podcasts to your portable device. If you're tired of copying files by hand, but don't want to use a heavyweight GUI solution, newpods might be right for you.
localcast is designed for Mac users who want to be able to resume podcast downloads after an error or unexpected sleep, something that iTunes cannot do by itself. Systems without iTunes can use localcast as an alternative to bashpodder. localcast depends on Mac OS X personal Web sharing and on wget. With localcast, interrupted downloads can be resumed, because wget fetches the podcasts. Podcasts appear fully integrated in iTunes just as if localcast was not in use.
Shell Flags (shFlags) is a library written to greatly simplify the handling of command-line flags in Bourne based Unix shell scripts (such as those run with bash, dash, ksh, sh, and zsh). Most shell scripts use getopt for flag processing, but the different versions of getopt on various OSes make writing portable shell scripts difficult. shflags instead provides an API that doesn't change across shell and OS versions, so the script writer can be confident that the script will work.
Werc is a minimalistic RESTful Web application framework and content management system. It follows the Unix "tool philosophy" and it is designed to be fast, simple, convenient, and easily extensible. It handles both small and big sites and has a flexible system for user and group permissions. All data is stored in plain text files that can be easily manipulated with standard tools, without using any databases or other external dependencies. Existing applications include a blogging engine with RSS/Atom feeds, a wiki system that can easily integrate pre-existing documents (can be enabled for any directory tree), and others.
CTL is a cross-platform control dispatching tool that makes it easy to automate any kind of distributed systems management or application provisioning task. Rather than writing complex and error-prone scripts that over utilize "for loops", CTL handles the network dispatching for you and allows you to focus on the actual management tasks you need to accomplish. In addition to being a dispatching tool, CTL comes with pre-built cross-platform utilities so you don't have to script actions like file distribution or process and port checking. You can also write your own custom utilities and share them with others in your organization. Custom utilities are defined in XML, and your scripting can be done in multiple scripting languages (Perl, Python, etc.), *nix shell, Windows batch, and/or Ant.
Dim is a utility to help you track the changes of items (sets composed of multiple files). It provides commands to handle the complete lifecycle of version control operations: create a library, register users (code authors), create items, save local versions, branch, clone, export, import, remove, merge, archive, replicate library content over the network or the filesystem, and access the full history and browse differences at the library, item, file, line, or word level. Dim is a single self-documented POSIX shell script. It just uses standard Unix utilities like awk, diff, tar, and openssl.
dirogg is a small script to migrate your entire music collection to the Ogg Vorbis format. It's a recursive script, meaning that you run it from the root of your music collection, and it will automatically convert your MP3 files to Ogg Vorbis (ogg) files. If you wish, it can also remove your MP3 files after conversion.
