The Crossplex package of make macros simplifies the creation of embedded systems, and is powerful enough for large organizations to use for developing elaborate product lines. It allows you to organize many different products under a logical structure, making systems of any complexity easy to specify. When you have many different target platforms, each with multiple different software configurations, Crossplex keeps those configurations from stepping on each other, without requiring redundancy in your source tree. Crossplex allows you to use a single dependency tree encompassing both in-house software and third-party packages, and it is particularly suited to build automation. Crossplex makes it easy to shield your build from the host environment, setting all shell variables explicitly, and giving you complete control over the path that is used at any point in the build. This is nice when you want to support building on a variety of development platforms. Crossplex scales to your needs. You can dabble in the unpacking and patching features as you need them, or you can base your entire system from the ground up on the Crossplex framework. Crossplex supports creation and use of glibc and uClibc toolchains.
The DocBook Authoring and Publishing Suite (DAPS) provides a tool set for easy creation and publication of DocBook sources on Linux. It lets you create HTML (including Webhelp), PDF, EPUB, man pages, and other formats with a single command. It automatically takes care of validating and filtering (profiling) your sources and automatically converts images into a format best suited for the output format. You can easily create profiled source tarballs for translation or review. DAPS supports authors by providing linkchecker, validator, spellchecker, and editor macros. It is well suited to manage large documentation projects with multiple authors using the DAPS docmanager.
Debian packaging utilities for Truecrypt source helps to get Truecrypt running with a minimum of effort under Debian-based Linux systems (Debian and Ubuntu are officially supported). Truecrypt is an open source disk encryption software which uses a concept of containers to store encrypted data. The containers (or volumes) can be read transparently under Linux and Windows. The utilities create installable *.deb packages from the sources and those debs can be used in turn to install the encryption software.
Fluxfont is a specialized tool that attempts to tackle the privacy concerns raised by the possibility to collect information about the fonts installed on a system. Such information can be used to uniquely identify a system. With Fluxfonts, new fonts are randomly created and removed to prevent the same fingerprint from being recreated.
Generic Makefile for C Projects is a generic makefile that builds a binary from C source code files. Any number of build modes are supported - Release and Debug are predefined. The CFlags and LFlags variables can be defined in a mode dependent way, i.e. CFlags_Debug. File dependencies are generated by the compiler (-MMD flag for preconfigured GNU compiler) and included by the makefile automatically. All output is written under a single target directory. It supports source files with the same name that are located in different directories. You can use wildcards to add any number of source files.
JavaAutotoolsExample is an example of a Java Swing program that uses GNU Gettext, Autoconf, Automake, Make, and Java JNI. JavaAutotoolsExample is intended to help Java developers and maintainers make their full-featured Java programs respect the standard "./configure && make && sudo make install" procedure for build and installation.
MBSL (MicroBlaze Simple Linux) is a set of Makefile scripts to create an image of a Linux-based OS for the Xilinx MicroBlaze (FPGA) soft processor. It provides very simple package management that allows you to customize the resulted image. The purpose is to just type 'make build install' and get the configured image.
OpenADK is a construction kit for embedded Linux. It creates Linux systems that are optimized for size and short bootup times. The toolchain supports many architectures (arm, m68k, mips, microblaze, ppc, sparc, superh, x86, and x86_64). It can build customized images for Qemu. Raspberry PI, Lemote Yeelong, and Sharp Zaurus devices are supported as a proof of concept. Approximately 685 source packages are available.
