The FReakSHell aims to be a sh-compatible shell and command language interpreter that has some advanced features that can not be found in other shells. It aims towards POSIX compliance by trying to implement the IEEE POSIX Shell and Tools specification (IEEE Working Group 1003.2). Advanced features include advanced job control (i.e. job exchange between different processes, dynamic repiping) and built-in auto-completion.
Since v2.04, bash has allowed you to intelligently program and extend its standard completion behavior to achieve complex command lines with just a few keystrokes. Imagine typing ssh [Tab] and being able to complete on hosts from your ~/.ssh/known_hosts files. Or typing man 3 str [Tab] and getting a list of all string handling functions in the UNIX manual. mount system: [Tab] would complete on all exported file-systems from the host called system, while make [Tab] would complete on all targets in Makefile. This project was conceived to produce programmable completion routines for the most common Linux/UNIX commands, reducing the amount of typing sysadmins and programmers need to do on a daily basis.
The klish is a framework for implementing Cisco-like command-line interfaces on Unix systems. It is configurable through XML files. "Klish" stands for "Kommand Line Interface SHell". The klish is a fork of clish-0.7.3. The original clish was developed by Graeme McKerrell. The klish adds some new features, but is compatible (as much as possible) with clish's XML configuration files.
JCons provides a library that bring color to your Java console. The Java console gives no methods to change the foreground or background color. With help of this library, one can make error messages red and success messages green, for example. Most Unix terminals can deal with ESC sequences, so they are used to make the Java console colorful.
