C-frame is a specialized 2D IDE for cross-platform 'system programming' (development on Windows/Linux/UNIX). You can convert an existing plain ASCII C source file to a CFR format (displayed in an editor as frames). It has compiler support for MSVC++, gcc, and gcc for Win32. It supports GTK+, GTK+ for Win32 with MinGW, and X11 software development.
DIET-PC (DIskless Embedded Technology Personal Computer) is a software kit enabling IT professionals to build embedded Linux appliances based on commodity PC or Mac hardware and various commercial embedded appliances. The focus is on platform portability, OS fundamentals and developer friendliness, rather than the end-user UI. The distribution is intended primarily for desktop graphical appliances, particularly thin clients (using the X11/XDMCP, ICA, RDP, and RFB graphics protocols). Although originally a network-booting OS, DIET-PC works well with various forms of solid-state persistent storage and hence is no longer strictly "diskless". The project uses QEMU virtual machines running Debian Linux (under Windows) as self-contained development environments, and hence may also be of interest for its unusual (non-x86) QEMU accomplishments.
JChassis ANSI Terminal Controller is a Java API for controlling ANSI-compliant terminals and terminal emulators such a Linux virtual terminals, xterm, Gnome Terminal, and KDE Konsole. The library can be used to display character styles and colors and graphical characters in those environments. It is a repackaging of various JChassis modules into a standalone library that does not require the JChassis SDK or framework.
JChassis TermUI is an API for simple GUI-like user interfaces on ANSI/VT100-compliant terminals and terminal emulators, such as Linux virtual terminals, GNOME Terminal, and KDE Konsole. The intent is similar to that of the ncurses library, but done in pure Java. Several commonly used widgets are available.
Linuxlord is a client/server architecture to enable Web-based thin client computing using Linux. Linuxlord allows you to login to your Linux desktop from everywhere via a Java applet running in your Web browser. It supports compression, making it useful even over a dialup connection.
Spinner is useful for keeping telnet and ssh links from dropping due to inactivity. Many firewalls and some ISPs drop connections when they are perceived as idle. By having spinner running, the server is constantly sent a tiny amount of data over the link, preserving the connection. Spinner thus acts as a keep-alive. It displays a little "spinning" ASCII character in the top left corner of your terminal. It supports any terminal capable of handling VT100-style escape codes. Spinner can also function transparently by only sending null characters to the terminal. In this mode Spinner supports any terminal. It also has a mode called "Ghost in the Machine" in which you can use Spinner to write the spinner character to any TTY, not just your own.
TN5250j is an AS400 Telnet 5250 written in Java. The emulator provides some of the more advance functions of the 5250 datastream such as edit masks, graphical windows, continued editing fields, etc. It includes a file transfer function to multiple formats such as Open Office and Excel via full SQL query statements, spool file exporting to text or PDF, the ability to email after transfer or export, scripting in Python via the jython language, and more.
