iBeans aims to make integration for Web applications much easier than it is today. It does this by focusing on simplicity and task-based integration and avoids technical jargon and new concepts wherever possible. It offers easy to use integration for doing things like publishing and subscribing to JMS queues and topics, sending and receiving email, polling resources such as databases and ATOM feeds, task scheduling, creating HTTP/Rest services, consuming external services such as Amazon EC2 and S3, Twitter, Flickr, Google, and much more. It proves a Tomcat distribution that drops straight into Tomcat, with no need to mess with your project dependencies, and works with developer tooling for Tomcat or Tcat. It has a very simple API using annotations. This means iBeans can be plugged into your existing Web apps easily. It includes easy unit and mock testing using JUnit. IBeans Central offers a great place to discover and try new iBeans in your applications.
foma is a compiler, programming language, and C library for constructing finite-state automata and transducers for various uses. It has specific support for many natural language processing applications such as producing morphological analyzers. Although NLP applications are probably the main use of foma, it is sufficiently generic to use for a large number of purposes. It comes with an xfst-compatible interface and regular expression language. The library contains efficient implementations of all classical automata/transducer algorithms: determinization, minimization, epsilon-removal, composition, and boolean operations. More advanced construction methods are also available: context restriction, quotients, first-order regular logic, transducers from replacement rules, etc.
Netscape Security Wrapper manages the loading of NPAPI (Netscape Plugin API) plugins and applies simple policy decisions. The intention is to allow administrators to deploy deprecated, unreliable, or unsafe third party plugins while minimizing the security exposure. Safari, Google Chrome, Firefox, and other NPAPI-compatible browsers are supported on OS X and Linux. Use cases include: restricting plugins to certain domains, restricting the use of deprecated plugins to known outliers, allowing internal corporate workflows which use insecure or deprecated plugins without exposing the plugin to the hostile Internet, and allowing multiple outdated plugin versions (e.g., Java) to co-exist for use in whitelisted, trusted enterprise tools.
GRALE is a set of tools - a library and a number of accompanying applications - to study gravitational lenses. Gravitational lenses are astronomical objects so massive that their gravitational pull even deflects light rays. This can cause multiple copies of the same background object to be visible, like a cosmic mirage. The locations and shapes of these copies can provide information about the mass distribution of the gravitational lens, which GRALE can help recover using a genetic algorithm-based method. Apart from these so-called lens inversions, it's also possible to simulate gravitational lenses.
Shellp is a shell helper library. It is intended to make it easier to write commandline-based applications. Commands are easy to define, and can be entered interactively or by reading from a file or standard input. If a graphical workspace is available, a Qt-based interface can be used. Otherwise, an ncurses-based one may be used. If the platform doesn't support that, either, reading from a file is still an option.
Spiderinabox provides an out-of-the-box solution for secure browsing on Mac systems. It includes a basic preconfigured installation of OpenBSD prepared as a VirtualBox image loaded with Firefox and a few scripts and programs to launch it and invoke Firefox over a secure connection. The visualization of Firefox is done on the OS X side using XQuartz, so you don't need to exit your working environment and switch between OS X and OpenBSD. Firefox runs encapsulated in OpenBSD and doesn't have access to OS X in any way.
PGObject::Simple::Role provides an interface to the PGObject service locator for Moo and Moose Perl classes. This service locator is intended to integrate Perl objects with PostgreSQL user-defined functions, and this uses the "simple" mapping approach. Between PGObject::Simple::Rrole and PGObject::Util::DBMethod, it is possible to write fully-declarative classes in which all calculation logic is handed off to database functions.
BURDShell is a shell with common commands to help the developer manage and speed up their common tasks. It manages sites, databases, repos, backups, and apps. Once set up, the developer can enjoy the speed of setting up projects with the assurance of fast, restorable version controlled backups.
