The Noble Ape Simulation is a collection of a number of autonomous simulation components including a landscape simulation, biological simulation, weather simulation, sentient creature (Noble Ape) simulation, and a simple intelligent-agent scripting language (ApeScript). Noble Ape also contains a social simulation where the Noble Apes can be tracked in terms of social groups and also over many generations to explain social phenomenon to users looking to study this kind of interaction. It has been in development for more than a fifteen years.
openTCS is a platform-independent transportation control system (TCS) intended to control automatic guided vehicles (AGVs), but which can be used to steer virtually any (track-guided) vehicle. It consists of an abstract kernel which implements replaceable algorithms and strategies (computation of routes, dispatching of orders to vehicles, scheduling of resources, etc.), pluggable vehicle drivers which implement communication protocols, and a graphical frontend for creating and visualizing logical models of areas the vehicles are moving in.
The YB.ORM library aims to simplify writing C++ code that has to deal with SQL databases. The goal is to provide a convenient interface like SQLAlchemy (Python) or Hibernate (Java). The library itself is cross-platform and supports a variety of SQL dialects: SQLite3, MySQL, Postgres, Oracle, and Firebird. Integration with Boost, Qt4, and wxWidgets is built-in. In a typical usage scenario, you would describe your database schema and table relationships in a simple XML-based format, generate SQL code to populate database schema with tables, generate C++ classes, add application-specific logic to the classes, and use these classes in cooperation with the Session object to query objects from the database, create new or modify/delete existing objects, or link and unlink objects using relations. Simple serialization to XML is supported along with connection pooling.
msg-rpc provides bidirectional RPC support over a simple message interface such as WebSocket. Tere are WebSocket examples based on socket.io and sockjs. It just has a simple sendMessage/onMessage interface, with no other dependencies. It supports not only normal RPC, but also RPC Service, which makes RPC pushable (i.e. the server can also send a request to the client and expect some kind of response).
MockMockWeb is a Heroku-ready Node.js-based Web application server which allows you to mock up a website in seconds. It allows you to instantly launch a website which sends an empty page (with status 200) to any request/URL and edit any page on the spot. You can also edit the layout shared throughout your website. It lets you build a mock (sometimes real) website in a request-driven interaction.
sydep is a tool for simple deployment over rsync. In combination GIT it is very powerful instrument. It provides three actions: init, push, and pull. init creates config files for sydep in the current directory. These are sydep.cfg, which contains connection details, and .sydepignore, which specifies files to ignore. push uploads files from the working directory to the server. pull downloads existing files from the server. It downloads only those files which are already in the working directory.
Web Note Pad is a Web-based notepad script. It features a two paned interface that allows you to manage your documents, create new files, search text content, or select a file to load into the editor. Previous versions of documents are kept, and 30 days of history can be examined using the "Older" or "Newer" navigation buttons on the toolbar.
Happy Phone Number provides easy methods to format phone numbers from your Rails models. Virtually any country specific format or convention could be supported, including national and international format. For the not (yet) supported countries, a general method using a simple mask is also provided.
