mod_pLua is an Apache HTTP Server 2.x module for developing Web applications with Lua. With mod_pLua, you can use Lua for scripting in two distinct ways; Embedded Lua scripting, <?lua print("Hello, world!") ?>, or plain Lua scripting with a CGI-style interface. mod_pLua precompiles all scripts and caches the compiled binary code so that each new call to the same file will be lightning fast, allowing you to serve hundreds of thousands of requests per minute on any modern server. Mod_pLua supports both the traditional Lua interpreter as well as LuaJIT for both Windows and UNIX platforms. If your Web server supports it, mod_pLua also utilizes APR_DBD and mod_dbd to handle persistent database connections through the dbopen() Lua function.
Diluculum is a library that intends to make the coexistence of C++ and Lua more harmonious. In this regard, it offers essentially three "services": a nice way to access data stored in a Lua interpreter; a not so bad way to write functions in C++ and make them available to Lua; and a limited and just barely usable way to register C++ classes and objects in a Lua state.
NetConnect is a command line tool for automating the login process to routers, switches, or UNIX hosts and any intermediate devices or proxies in the path. It does this by using credentials supplied within a configuration file. It also allows users to run Perl based scripts on a single device or devices in parallel to automate tasks. Although it was originally designed around Cisco routers and switches, it can be extended to work with any CLI based device by specifying custom prompts that different devices use. It works well with Cisco routers and switches as the concepts around "enable" mode and the corresponding syntax of the prompt are contained within the source. Devices can be stored within your configuration file, so you are able to connect to devices using a portion of their name (using regular expressions) as opposed to having to remember IP addresses or full DNS names.
The GUIShell project is a collection of utilities facilitating the use of the GTK+ toolkit in shell scripts through the gtkshell utility. The ACE configuration environment provides sample scripts utilizing gtkshell for desktop utilities. rootcat provides the ability to display messages to the root window using Xft, allowing one to write status display scripts.
MASH is a modular, automated script harness. It allows users to implement simple harnesses that perform work external to a system. The framework will invoke that harness as outlined by an XML script. For example, when using the framework to test a system you could create a script that cleans and loads a database, FTPs some data, submits a login form, and verifies HTTP information. Harnesses can easily be built to do almost anything (many harnesses are provided), not just Web page verification. While harnesses are written in Java, the scripts may be run against any type of system as harnesses are intended to act as clients.
Hybris (hybrid scripting language) is a dynamic scripting programming language created to help developers to automate everyday procedures in a easy and fast way. Although is a high level language, Hybris supports dynamic library linking, native C function calls, and a lot of other low level functionality.
iMacros for Chrome is an extension that allows you to automate repetitive tasks like visiting the same sites every day, filling out forms, and remembering passwords. It can automatically fill Web forms that stretch over several pages. It can automate the download and upload of images, files, or entire pages (with or without images). iMacros includes a user agent switcher, functions to download PDF and Flash, and ad-blocking and image-blocking functions. iMacros can automatically read data from a Web site and export it to CSV files. You can use this feature to download stock quotes, gather and compare Web store prices, and more. Web professionals can use iMacros for functional, performance, and regression testing of Web applications.
