The GUIShell project is a collection of utilities facilitating the use of the GTK+ toolkit in shell scripts through the gtkshell utility. The ACE configuration environment provides sample scripts utilizing gtkshell for desktop utilities. rootcat provides the ability to display messages to the root window using Xft, allowing one to write status display scripts.
relman is a tool that takes your source code, runs the build, and distributes the packages. A configuration file allows you to define application-wide defaults in addition to information particular to individual projects such as the source directory, package name, and the like. Once set up, you just have to call relman with the name given to the project plus the version to release. It calls pkgmake to build .tar.gz, .deb, and .rpm files, and then distributes them using (s)FTP, RSync, and/or SCP all in one run.
process-getopt is a wrapper around getopt(1) for bash that allows a developer to define command line options with their descriptions through a single function call. These definitions are then used in runtime processing of command line options as well as in generating help and man pages. This results in more internal consistency in bash scripts, particularly when they are maintained and changed later. It also saves a little time in coding and producing nicely formatted documentation. It is quite similar to GNU's argp in glibc for compiled languages. Samples and a manual are included.
