Basic Broadcaster (bb) allows you to transfer text messages simply from one computer to another on a LAN. The messages are broadcast in the LAN and and can be received by each machine running bb. No setup is required other than starting the application. The messages are transmitted as plain text, and no encryption is done. The broadcasts can only be sent to machines on the same subnet as the sending machine, and will not be forwarded by routers to the Internet.
SDLbits is a very lightweight SDL wrapper for Java. This library was designed to be very small and simple. It does not use Swig, but goes directly from "native" Java definitions to the sdlbits C wrapper library to SDL or OpenGL (in C). All symbols are exposed as they would be in C, except the "SDL_" prefix has been removed, since all names are inside the SDL class. The SDL structures from C are translated to very simple Java classes, such as SDL.VideoInfo. Most fields are exposed as read-only "get" methods, but "set" methods for writable members are supported as well. These classes simply interface to the actual C data with a ByteBuffer "pointer".
Treep is a simple language for doing symbolical computations. It operates on numbers and strings that can be organized in more complex objects. These objects are lists of name-value pairs that are stored in memory as AVL trees. It has about sixty built-in functions to operate on such data and a way to define new functions. Treep syntax very much resembles Lisp. The power of treep is its simplicity and security. Treep is a good tool do process objects and relations between them. For example it is possible to define graphs as a sets of vertices and edges in text file, parse that file, do any computations you like, write modified data to text file. Treep works well on graphs, trees, linked lists, simple hashes. Treep is not good at processing texts, dealing with system input/output.
Avoision is a very simple arcade-style game. There's no story, no fancy graphics, no campaigns--just frantic, high-speed gameplay. Gameplay consists of moving a green block around with the arrow keys. The goal is to capture the red block before the timer runs out to score points. You must avoid all the white blocks that appear as you progress through the game.
PerlDaemon is a minimal Unix daemon framework. It can be programmed in Perl to perform any task. It supports automatic daemonizing, logging and logrotate support, clean shutdown, and PID files (including a check on startup). It's easy to configure and easy to extend by customizing the daemonloop subroutine.
mdp stands for "Mot de Passe", which means "password" in French. It wraps GnuPG for encryption and deals with all the small details of generating, managing, and fetching your passwords. It is similar to many other programs, but differentiates itself with simplicity (not button-driven simplicity, but with a Unix less-is-more style). For example, beyond the use of GnuPG for encryption, it lets you use your own editor to manage your passwords, categorize them, and delete them. In order to avoid passwords lingering on your screen, the results from the queries are displayed through a custom pager which is cleared after a customizable timeout (defaulting to ten seconds).
