cw is a non-intrusive real-time ANSI color wrapper for common Unix-based commands. It is designed to simulate the environment of the commands being executed, so that if a person types 'du', 'df', 'ping', etc. in their shell it will automatically color the output in real-time according to a definition file containing the color format desired. It has support for wildcard match coloring, tokenized coloring, headers/footers, case scenario coloring, command-line- dependent definition coloring, and includes over 50 pre- made definition files.
Groovy is an agile, dynamic language for the JVM which combines many features from languages like Python, Ruby, and Smalltalk and makes them available to Java developers using a Java-like syntax. It is designed to help get things done on the Java platform in a quicker, more concise, and fun way. It can be used as an alternative compiler to javac to generate standard Java bytecode to be used by any Java project or it can be used dynamically as an alternative language, such as for scripting Java objects, templating, or writing unit test cases.
The Heirloom Toolchest is a collection of standard Unix utilities. It was derived from original Unix material released as open source by Caldera and Sun, and contains multiple versions of each utility corresponding to SVID3/SVR4, SVID4/SVR4.2MP, POSIX.2-1992/SUSV2, POSIX.1-2001/SUSV3, and 4BSD (SVR4 /usr/ucb). It processes lines of arbitrary length and in many cases binary input data, supports characters in UTF-8 and many East Asian encodings, and contains more than 100 individual utilities including bc, cpio, diff, ed, file, find, grep, man, nawk, oawk, pax, ps, sed, sort, spell, and tar. Extensive documentation is included.
XSH (the XML Editing Shell) is a very powerful command-line shell designed to allow easy navigation and manipulation of XML documents. XSH may be used either interactively or for off-line XML processing (like bash). XPath can be used to select parts of an XML document to be listed or processed. The system shell and Perl are also accessible from XSH in a very natural way. XSH itself is written in Perl using the XML::LibXML bindings of the libxml2 library.
BASP (BAsh Server Pages) is a patch against Bash for processing HTML templates (or any documents) with embedded shell scripts. The advantage is that you have full access to the shell and system environment without learning yet another programming language. This project has been merged with BashDiff.
The Aardvark Shell Utils is a collection of three utilities designed to aid the user when working with shell scripts or from the command line. All three accept input on the command line or from standard input, and thus they can be piped with other commands. All commands come with their own man page. Included are realpath, filebase, and fileext.
