Assimilate is a Maven2 plugin that allows developers to import dependencies from other pre-built Maven projects without a formal parent-child hierarchy existing between the projects. There is no limit to the number of project dependencies. Maven 2.0.9's "import" scope acts not on managed dependencies, but on those declared in the dependency management section of the imported pom file. Assimilate, in contrast, is designed to act on managed dependencies of any prebuilt Maven project (stored in the local repository), as though they were declared in the local project's managed dependency section.
Metrix++ is a platform to collect and analyze code metrics. It has a plugin-based architecture, so it is easy to add support for new languages, define new metrics, and/or create new pre- and post-processing tools. Every metric has 'turn-on' and other configuration options. There are no predefined thresholds for metrics or rules; you can choose and configure any limit you want. It scales well to large codebases. For example, initial parsing of about 10000 files takes 2-3 minutes on an average PC, and only 10-20 seconds for iterative re-run. Reporting summary results and exceeded limits takes less than 1 - 10 seconds. It can compare results for 2 code snapshots (collections) and differentiate added regions (classes, functions, etc.), modified regions, and unchanged regions. As a result, easy deployment is guaranteed into legacy software, helping you to deal with legacy code efficiently, and either enforce the 'leave it not worse than it was before' rule or motivate re-factoring.
GCC-MELT is a high-level domain specific language that eases the development of plugin-like extensions for GCC, the Gnu Compiler Collection. These extensions can analyze or modify GCC internal representations, and can be used for static source code analysis, refactoring, specific warnings, optimizations, etc. The MELT language provides high-level features. Notably, MELT code is translated to C or C++, and can even contain C or C++ code. It includes powerful pattern matching facilities and can manipulate dynamically typed values and raw GCC structures. It enables functional/applicative, object-oriented, reflective programming styles and has a familiar Lisp-like syntax.
As a plugin API, Frei0r's main emphasis is on simplicity, to round up the most common video effects into simple filters, sources, and mixers that can be controlled by parameters. Frei0r plugins can be shared by many host applications, avoiding duplicate efforts by different projects. Frei0r is not meant as a competing standard to more ambitious efforts trying to satisfy the needs of many different applications and more complex effects, as it doesn't provides things like an extensive parameter mechanism or event handling.
Ibid is a multi-protocol, general purpose, instant messaging chat bot written in Python. It aims for a naturalistic interface rather than strict-syntax commands. Ibid understands many protocols, including IRC, Jabber/XMPP/Google Talk, Campfire, NMDC, and SILC. It also interacts over SMTP, HTTP, and various RPC protocols. Ibid aims to make plugins as easy as possible to write. It ships with a large collection of plugins for looking up information, performing conversions, storing factoids, delivering messages, and much more.
