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.
selector is a command line utility for dynamic string selection. It reads the content of the specified files, and as the user types a list of strings separated by ";" (or a regexp), the display is updated in real time to show only the lines containing all the said strings (or matching the regexp). This command was mainly designed as a way to search in the shell history, for which it is substantially more efficient than the standard readline ^R binding. With the -v option, it injects the selected line into the tty input buffer, hence allowing the user to edit the line and execute it as a standard command.
The parallel project allows for simple parallel and distributed processing from shell scripts. In particular, the programs accept lines of shell code on the standard input and run these lines in parallel. The parallelism can be either on the local machine or on a cluster, if a small amount of time is taken to set up SSH. Additionally, the distributed version includes a degree of fault tolerance.
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.
