Spinneret is a structured storage engine that can be thought of as an extended tuple storage system. It takes the best aspects of relational, object, and hierarchical databases and throws away the dead weight associated with those technologies. The benefit of Spinneret is that its data model is incredibly flexible, allowing it to expose its underlying data in any number of ways. It operates similar to an object database, but without hard ties to an originating language, and can also behave like a relational database without the burden of complex joins.
db.* is a database management system (DBMS) designed to provide powerful, flexible, high-performance capabilities for developing embedded database applications. By combining the network and relational model technologies in a single system, it lets you organize and access information efficiently, regardless of the complexity of the data. The database has a very small footprint and because it is possible to use the network model to store some of the data, it can be very fast. It is also well-documented and quite simple to learn because of its C-based API.
mysqlblasy is a Perl script for automating MySQL database backups. It uses "mysqldump" for dumping mysql databases to the files sytem. It was written with automated usage in mind. For example, it is silent during operation, and only produces noise on errors/problems. It rotates backups automatically to prevent the backup disk from getting full when the administrator is on vacation (or is lazy).
Eleven is a programming language for creating robust, scalable Web applications quickly and easily. It offers a 20x programmer productivity increase over traditional server programming languages like ASP, PHP, and JSP by automating state management and taking control of the application's look and feel. From high-level source code with a simple, C-like syntax, the compiler generates complete, ready-to-run implementations in PHP or mod_perl. Applications maintain their state in a relational database and are inherently fault-tolerant, secure, and scalable.
PACT is a self-contained set of tools which support developing and using portable programs, particularly scientific and engineering applications. By defining a single, higher level, standard programming interface, it shields application developers from the plethora of different hardware architectures and operating systems and their non-standard features.
Delicious Library is a home library system featuring creation of digital shelves for books, movies, and CDs, support for barcode scanning using an iSight or Bluetooth barcode scanner, automatic downloading of information about the scanned media from Amazon (including similar items, user reviews, etc.), the ability to track items lent to people, the ability to send recommendations about a book to friends, and much more. It features a slick, easy to use interface with high-res downloaded images of the media, making it look almost like a real live bookshelf.
