The Arakhnê.org Foundation Classes (AFC) is a collection of Java libraries (based on Maven) that provides a collection of utilities that are not provided in the standard Java API. Many utility classes are provided: file filters, progress indicators, arrays, collections, VM utilities, text utilities, math tools (point, vector, matrix, shape, etc.), widgets for AWT, Swing, and Android, a platform-independent graphical API, and more.
Spanish Word Searches allows you to generate and play randomly-generated word searches based on 1,200 items of basic Spanish vocabulary split into topics. You can select to play the word searches on vocabulary from any combination of themes and specify the size of the grid, number of words, and difficulty parameters. The program also contains a link to the iPad version of the word search application.
CubicWeb is a semantic Web application framework that empowers developers to build Web applications by reusing components (called cubes) and following the well known object-oriented design principles. Its main features are: an engine driven by the explicit data model of the application; a query language, RQL, similar to W3C’s SPARQL; a selection+view mechanism for semi-automatic XHTML/XML/JSON/text generation; a library of reusable components (data model and views) that fulfill common needs; the power and flexibility of the Python programming language; and the reliability of SQL databases, LDAP directories, Subversion, and Mercurial for storage backends.
ddrescueview is a small tool that allows the user to graphically examine ddrescue's log files in a user-friendly GUI application. The Main window displays a block grid with each block's color representing the block types it contains. Many people know this type of view from defragmentation programs. The program is written in Object Pascal using the Lazarus IDE. It can be compiled to run on Windows, GNU/Linux, and probably OS X too. The downloads include binaries for the respective target platform and the project files (source code).
BitWrk is creating a marketplace where participants can buy or sell computing power like stocks in a stock exchange, using Bitcoin as currency. The client software can be integrated with existing, compute-intensive applications (e.g. rendering software), creating a big boost by harnessing the combined computing power of the BitWrk network. Sellers earn money by putting their hardware to work, offering an alternative to Bitcoin mining.
URL Router is a PHP class that can match URLs with routes for controllers and actions. It takes the definition of one or more routes with string expressions that define patterns to match given URLs. It supports a special route pattern syntax that allows defining how to extract the name of the controller and action from the URL. The class returns an array with the details of the matched route.
JS Measurer measures a webpage's width and height interactively. It lets the user define an area in the page by dragging the mouse pointer. The object renders the area outline as the mouse moves, showing the width and height of the area in pixels, as well the coordinates of the top-left corner of the area. A bookmarklet is also available, so this object can be used as a link placed, for instance, in the browser toolbar.
Kelvin is a units converter intended for scientists, teachers, and students who need a reliable tool for fast conversion. Some categories included are: acceleration, area, frequency, atomic physics, density, electrical capacitance, electromagnetic radiation, energy/work, flow, force, fuel consumption, illumination, length, luminance, luminous flux, magnetomotive force, mass, power, prefixes and suffixes, pressure and stress, specific heat, speed/velocity, temperature, thermal resistance, time, torque, viscosity (dynamic), viscosity (kinematic), volume, and dry/liquid capacity.
