Associations Indexing Service (AIS) was originally done as an extension of human memory for tagging (storing under personal keywords and associations) resources, URIs, bookmarks, and memos (for fast access to the information in future) by using the same keywords or queries, similar to popular search engines. It can be seen as a local search engine, used as an automatic indexer of big file hierarchies (e.g. personal archives or files repositories). It is based on Lucene, so the application will remain very fast with any size index.
Kheops is a PHP source repository for small to medium sized projects. Its aim is to be easy to use but powerful. It features a Web interface, automated archive creation, and other enjoyable features. It works with a Python client to allow advanced users to keep a copy of the sources updated.
Skwish is a fast, simple, lightweight Java library for storing blobs on the file system. It allows multiple concurrent readers and writers, provides all-or-nothing write semantics, and is designed to survive abnormal, unclean shutdown. Skwish is a structured implementation of storing all blobs in a single file to save on file system I/O. Skwish is premised on the proposition that blob storage ought to be orthogonal to the task of indexing. It is meant to be a clean and simple store on which some other index can be built.
open-vcdiff contains an encoder and decoder for the format described in RFC 3284: "The VCDIFF Generic Differencing and Compression Data Format." Given a source file and target file, the encoder produces a compact delta file expressing the differences between the two. The decoder reconstructs the target file from the source and delta files. The package includes libraries, headers, and a command-line executable. The chief reason for developers to use open-vcdiff instead of the existing Xdelta package is that open-vcdiff has been released under the Apache license rather than GPL.
Chestnut Package Manager is a utility to handle executables and resource files in a transparent, platform independent, and relocatable way. Its concept is similar to Apple bundles and Java archives. It is implemented in Python. Chestnut makes it possible to invoke programs or obtain resources without knowledge of their absolute or relative path, making them accessible even after relocation of the package to another directory.
JImageExplore is an image viewer with features to make navigating image archives simple. It extends JImageView, which is a plain image viewer, and adds a way to navigate directories and archive files. Thanks to TrueZIP, archive files are treated as virtual directories. JImage Explore also adds support for docking windows which will be used for supporting extensions such as multiple image display and thumbnail views.
