Karra is a flexible, Web-based, multi-lingual system for creating digital libraries of images, documents, URLs, and associated metadata. It could be used to archive and organise an organisation’s photo collection, providing a historical record. It could be used in scientific study where images of particular items need to be stored with data or geographical information. Textual information can be included with each item, creating a valuable repository of data and providing a way to search for records later.
PIVIAU is a PHP/MySQL Web based gallery for pictures, videos, and audio that supports tags and EXIF. Albums and pictures have searchable tag, country, city, place, date, subject, and author. An RSS feed is available for every seach you can do, or for recent pictures. There is an AJAX-powered slideshow. Pictures are resized using PHP GD image functions. Videos are viewable a la Google Video using a video flash player. Audio (WAV and MP3) is supported via the embed HTML tag. EXIF is supported via PHP exif functions to extract the picture date.
Lodel is a high-quality Web publishing system (CMS). Text-processed documents (in DOC, RTF, or SXW) are imported using a server-side application, servoo. Documents are structured using the styles in a word processor (or with forms). You can easily add and modify database fields to fit your needs: title, images, abstract, etc. It automatically produces sites with a table of contents, keyword index, author index, and much more. It is compliant with Dublin Core, UTF-8, CSS, and XHTML. It is currently in French and will be shortly translated into English.
Larbin is a Web crawler intended to fetch a large number of Web pages to fill the database of a search engine. With a network fast enough, it should be able to fetch more than 100 millions pages on a standard PC. This set of PHP and Perl scripts, called webtools4larbin, can handle the output of Larbin.
Osprey is a peer-to-peer enabled content distribution system. It is a metadata management system for software and document collections which enables local and distributed searching of materials. Items are available for download directly via an URL or indirectly via the BitTorrent peer-to-peer protocol. Two components exist: the Osprey Web application and permaseed (permanent seed).

Generating new objects for the Query Object Framework is repetitive, tedious, and time consuming. Qof Generator automates this process in PHP to build a working test program linked against QOF. Objects are created from an HTML form using a temporary MySQL cache and exported with Makefile, ./autogen.sh, ChangeLog, README, C source code, and doxygen mark-up comments in a tarball built by the PHP code.
OntoWiki is a semantic collaboration platform for the development of Semantic Web knowledge bases. OntoWiki enables large distributed communities to collaborate on a semantic level, by allowing users to contribute small structured knowledge pieces, which stitched together may result in comprehensive knowlegde bases. Powl is Web-based ontology authoring and management solution for the Semantic Web. Both expose an extensive API for PHP programmers.
Drugref is a collaborative effort to create and maintain a database of pharmaceutical reference information, tagged by language, country, and reference source. A Web interface written in PHP4 allows the community of health professionals to maintain and review content. The database structure, implemented in PostgreSQL, is designed to facilitate automated decision support. "Tagging" allows one to import information from any source in parallel, thus allowing drugref to work as a generic interface to any kind of (comercially or freely) available drug reference information.
Designer Framework is a highly customizable e-commerce framework. It automatically builds e-commerce interfaces that support a product's contraints and properties and can be used to model the product to be sold, automatically and dynamically generating different output formats depending on the generator used. It includes a Java modelling application, a finite state machine described in XML as intermediate format for the customer interface, and XSLT scripts for transforming the state machine into the final interface.Designer Framework is a highly customizable e-commerce framework.
