Meters is a set of Java/Swing components for creating live, realtime dashboards which visualize telemetric data. It provides visually rich components with organic movement, which gets the user interface out of the way, allowing the data to communicate. It is implementation-agnostic. It provides easily-extended interfaces and base classes which allow you to integrate your existing data sources so you can create a simple Java wrapper around your existing technology and incorporate your telemetry data into Meters.
HTMLSplicer is a toolkit that provides methods to compose complex HTML documents from simpler HTML documents, called templates. It can be used to generate servlet responses in Java Web applications, without adopting a full-fledged presentation layer framework like JSP, JSF, Apache Wicket, or GWT.
Blacken is a Java library for Roguelike development. It supports arbitrarily resizing the window. It maintains a "preferred size", changing the font size as needed. By default, all applications support Alt-Enter for fullscreen mode. It strives to support Unicode well. A cell contains a sequence of codepoints. Codepoints may be outside the Basic Multilingual Plane or zero-width accents. All key input consists of valid Unicode codepoints. Special keys are handled by codepoints in "private use" planes. Modifier keys are handled through a prefix character (like Unix systems handle Alt via the Escape character).
grixec is a script that implements a few user-space commands that permit the running of batch jobs on the local computer or on any accessible computer where the user has an ssh account. Data, results, and execution parameters of each job are stored in a new directory for each run. Basic methods to sort out job directories by project and to document results are provided.
The Ninja project is an attempt to develop an alternative Nagios GUI with the aim of being the most useful Open Source Web front end for Nagios. It improves searching and filtering and scalability. It supports templates and skins for customizing appearance, and supports several databases. You can use the components of Ninja in combination with the CGI scripts of the original Nagios Web GUI or as replacements for them.
Metawidget is a "smart user interface widget" that populates itself, at runtime, with UI components to match the properties of your business objects. Metawidget does this without introducing new technologies. It inspects your existing back-end architecture (such as JavaBeans, existing annotations, existing XML configuration files) and creates widgets native to your existing front-end framework (such as Swing, Java Server Faces, Struts, Android). Metawidget does not replace or hide your existing UI framework and guarantees that your investment in its technology and knowledge is as valid as always.
TagEventor is a project to enable radically simple computer usage by creating physical-object-based user interfaces. It does this using commercially available (and relatively cheap), standardized RFID technology in the form of small, simple USB connected contacted card/tag readers and small, cheap tags. The project was started based on products available from the "touchatag" company, which has clients for Windows and Mac, and run their own Web service to enable many interesting Web-based applications. However, no simple, lightweight Linux client was available, and the Web focus meant that some client-focused functionality was not possible. The software is currently a daemon that monitors the presence of one or more RFID tags on a connected reader and generates "system events" when tags are placed on it or removed from it.
