pulseaudio-mixer-cli is an interactive ncurses UI to control the volume of PulseAudio streams. It is somewhat like alsamixer, but focused not on sink volume levels (which can actually be controlled via alsamixer, with the alsa-pulse plugin), but rather on the volume of individual streams from applications, allowing the user to balance sound levels between them. Interaction with pulseaudio is done through the DBus interface, and the UI is designed to be as simple as possible, without heavy DE dependencies like GNOME libs or KDE/QT.
ng-jackspa is a set of simple user interface programs that host a LADSPA plugin, providing JACK ports for its audio inputs and outputs, and dynamic setting of its control inputs through the user interface. Additionally, the plugin controls can be exported to or controlled by control voltages on standard JACK audio ports. The following interfaces are available: an ncurses visual (full screen) interface for the terminal; a GTK+ graphical interface; a Qt 4 graphical interface; and a command line interface for the terminal.
FrobTADS is a complete rewrite of the Unix console-version of TADS ("Text Adventure Development System"). It uses curses (or ncurses) and provides an interpreter to play games developed with TADS as well as the TADS 2 and 3 development tools. It adds support for a number of relatively recent user interface features including full support for text and background colors, TADS 3 banner windows, and timed input. It's also much more portable and more easily maintainable, as it's built to modern Unix standards.
