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.
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.
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.
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which use insecure or deprecated plugins without exposing the plugin to the hostile Internet, and allowing multiple outdated plugin versions (e.g., Java) to co-exist for use in whitelisted, trusted enterprise tools.
