The PushButton Engine is a Flash game engine and framework that's designed for a new generation of games. It makes it easy to bring together great existing libraries and components for building Flash games and makes it possible to spend less time on code and more time on building fun games.
Vunsy is a very easy content management system and a dynamic Web site designer that entirely removes the need for a Web design program. Its purpose is to enable the user to make a site quickly by using widgets and layouts. It allows you to assign permissions to every piece of content. These permissions can control such things as viewing and deleting the content.
The pylib library features the popular py.test command line tool for rapidly writing and running tests in Python and py.execnet, a new way to do ad-hoc distribution of Python code to remote processes. py.test runs well on Linux, Windows, and OSX using Python 2.4 through to 2.6. It can distribute a single test run to multiple machines. It is used in many projects, ranging from running tens of thousands of tests integrated with buildbot to a few inlined tests on a command line script.
Shannon is a general purpose stream-oriented programming language; it is concise and yet feature rich. Streams, FIFOs, and Unix shell-style pipes are first-class concepts in the language. You can connect functions and FIFOs within your program similar to the way you connect processes with pipes in the Unix shell. These constructs in Shannon, however, are highly efficient as no true multitasking is involved, and at the same time they allow you to write more concise and readable code for chained data processing. State is a special type of function that returns a reference to its own local data and any nested functions it may have. In effect, states implement classes in terms of OOP, and yet classes per se aren't part of the language. A special type of modules marked as "persistent" is an effective replacement for databases and SQL. This allows you to access persistent shared data using native Shannon constructs, eliminating the need for an extra query language. Intuitive and minimalist syntax and semantics are used. Particularly, "minimalist semantics" means less things to remember and more possibilities. Shannon is statically-typed, although it provides dynamic typing facilities as well.
XapianFu is a Ruby library for working with Xapian databases. It builds on the GPL licensed Xapian Ruby bindings, but provides an interface more in-line with "The Ruby Way"(tm) and is considerably easier to use. For example, you can work almost entirely with Hash objects, and XapianFu will handle converting the Hash keys into Xapian term prefixes when indexing and when parsing queries. It also handles storing and retrieving hash entries as Xapian::Document values. XapianFu basically gives you a persistent Hash with full text indexing (and ACID transactions).
