BrickIt provides a portable Web-based registry that helps synthetic biologists to plan and organize the construction of Biobricks. Biobricks are standardized fragments of DNA (genes, switches, and more complex functional modules) that are openly and freely shared across the community of synthetic biologists (see biobricks.org. Brickit implements a database-backed Django Web server to coordinate and track the biobrick samples within a lab, institute, or local community.
Pymacs is a powerful tool which, once started from Emacs, allows both-way communication between Emacs Lisp and Python. Pymacs in intended for using Python as an extension language for Emacs rather than the other way around, and this asymmetry is reflected in some design choices. Within Emacs Lisp code, one may load and use Python modules. Python functions may themselves use Emacs services and handle Emacs Lisp objects kept in Emacs Lisp space.
SysLog Summary summarizes the contents of a log file written by syslog. It displays each unique (except for the time) line once, and also shows the number of times such a line occurs in the input. The lines are displayed in the order they occur in the input. It is also possible to define some rules to ignore certain lines by using regular expressions.
Openduckbill is a simple command line backup tool for Linux. It is capable of monitoring files and directories marked for backup for any changes, and transferring these changes either to a local backup directory, a remote NFS exported partition, or a remote SSH server using rsync. It can either maintain an exact copy of the source at the backup destination, or maintain both current and previous versions of the source at the backup destination.
