selector is a command line utility for dynamic string selection. As you type a list of substrings separated by ";" or a regexp, the display is updated in real time to show only the matching lines. The main usage of selector is as an efficient search in the shell command history. With the correct option, it will inject the selected line into the terminal input buffer, allowing the user to edit the line and execute it as a standard command.
Bashinator is a bash shell script framework. It provides flexible and powerful message handling that lets you print to stdout, log (to syslog or a logfile), and mail messages with a single message function. Exhaustive information is included in messages to ease debugging. This information includes timestamps, message severity, source file, line numbers, and function names. A facility for tracing the function call stack is provided. Sub-command output can be logged by capturing the stdout/stderr of external commands to a dedicated temporary logfile. The framework also provides lockfile handling.
Boscli is a framework to create interactive command line interfaces. It is meant to help developers write interactive shells for domain specific tasks. It provides an easy way to wrap and join together command line apps and utilities and create specific shells with security levels and modes, history, auto-completion, and so on. Using this framework any developer can build an interactive command line interface for configuration or monitor an appliance in a few minutes. Boscli can be used as a "glue code" for an appliance's interface or to create a "homogeneous" administration interface for different systems and applications.
prll is a utility for parallelizing the execution of shell functions. It provides a convenient interface for parallelizing the execution of a single task over multiple data files or any other kind of data that you can pass as a shell function argument. It is meant to make it simple to fully utilize a multicore/multiprocessor machine. prll is designed to be used not just in shell scripts, but also in interactive shells. To make the latter convenient, it is implemented as a shell function. Shells are not very good at automatic job management, so prll uses helper programs, written in C. To prevent race conditions, System V Message Queues are used to signal job completion. Standard output is buffered and Semaphores are used to prevent interleaving.
OpenNode is a server virtualization solution that provides an easy-to-use (CentOS/RHEL based) bare-metal ISO installer that supports both OpenVZ container-based and KVM full virtualization technology on the same host. The OpenNode ISO installer will set up a minimal CentOS server system with the following features: a RHEL kernel (provided by OpenVZ project) modified to support both openvz and kvm virtualization, libvirt management interface support for openvz and kvm hypervisors, func (https://fedorahosted.org/func/) client support for central management purposes, and VM template downloads provided by the opennode TUI utility.
hsh is a command-line driven user interface to your system with a full-screen curses interface instead of the scrolling terminal style output of traditional shells. The main purpose of hsh compared to a traditional shell is to make job output easier to work with. Each job's output is viewed and manipulated independently. This means, among other things, that you can incrementally create pipelines, and that a rampant process can't trash all the output of your session. Its syntax is designed for human use, not a programming language. It has a dynamic configurable interface, making useful information accessible.
new-words is a script that helps you to control your vocabulary and find unknown words in texts before you start to read them. It is intended to be run in a console; the interactive part of the work is done by means of a text editor (vim by default). It features: words frequency information about words in a text; users vocabulary control; support for several languages; dictionary software integration; and the ability to make notes for unknown words.
