Salsa is a Web application for authoring higher education syllabi called SALSAs (Styled & Accessible Learning Service Agreements). SALSAs promote learner-centric and accessible formatting, well-defined learning outcomes/objectives, and inclusion of required policies: accommodations for students with disabilities, academic honesty, course evaluations, etc. Salsa generates a unique and random hyperlink for you. Use the hyperlink to return and edit your SALSA, or publish your SALSA to generate a new hyperlink to a "read-only" copy of your SALSA in PDF or HTML format. No email address or signup is required.
Pies is a Python 2 and Python 3 compatibility layer with the philosophy that all code should be Python 3 code. Starting from this viewpoint means that when running on Python 3, Pies adds virtually no overhead. Instead of providing a bunch of custom methods (leading to Python code which looks out of place on any version), Pies aims to backport as many of the Python 3 API calls, imports, and objects to Python 2 as possible, relying on special syntax only when absolutely necessary.
Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer electronic cash system that is completely decentralized, without the need for a central server or trusted parties. Users hold the crypto keys to their own money and transact directly with each other, with the help of a P2P network to check for double-spending.
Genit is a framework that builds a static Web site, which does not require a server side programming language or database. Generated sites consist only of XHTML code (plus CSS and media). It runs from the command line, is based on XML, and is designed to be simple, readable, and minimalist.
csvgrep is a commandline program which enables users to execute searches on text-delimited files using a rudimentary query language. Its query language is bound to simplicity and expressivity, to be easily comprehensible. It aims at replacing both grep and awk when you are challenged to retrieve information from a text-delimited file based on the content of a specific field (or column). You can get what you want using the semantic already in the file’s underlying structure.
Backshift is a deduplicating (variable-sized, content-based blocks), compressing (xz or bz2) backup program. Full saves and incrementals are pretty indistinct other than the amount of data transmitted, somewhat like with "rsync --link-dest" but without the huge number of hardlinks. It also de-duplicates large file content at a granularity of about 2 megabytes on average; there tends to be a unique copy of each file with size less than around 2 megabytes on average.
