FeResPost is a library that allows the rapid development of small programs for the post-processing of Nastran or Samcef finite element results. The library allows easy manipulation of finite element models, groups, and results. Efficient post-processing is possible because the time-consuming operations are written in C/C++. The library is distributed as a COM component, a .NET assembly, as well as a Ruby compiled extension.
omnisode generates a Ruby program to use long Taylor series to solve systems of ordinary differential equations. It generates code to solve the equations in either Maple or Maxima. Using the Taylor series, estimates are made of the location and order of poles. It has been greatly re-worked the last few years, and tested quite a bit recently. Support may be extended to other languages in the future.
Estimer is a Redmine plugin that allows you to estimate your software projects. It can calculate two types of software estimations: function point estimations (IFPUG) and use case estimations. Function point estimations are software estimations based on function points. A function point is a unit of measurement to express the amount of business functionality that the information system provides to users. Use case estimations are software estimations based on use cases and actors.
The FIX message viewer is a set of Ruby scripts that parse FIX (Financial Information eXchange protocol) messages to display them in a more human-readable format. The viewer can only parse FIX messages in a file or from STDIN. It also expects a full FIX message on each line. The FIX message can be prepended with a timestamp, but this will be ignored. The output is colored to make it easier to read, and the MsgType field is highlighted. The log viewer works on the command line only, and requires that Ruby is installed.
Refinery is a Ruby on Rails content management system for small business sites where the client needs to be able to update their Web site themselves without being bombarded with anything too complicated. It is truly aimed at the end user, making it easy for them to pick up and make changes themselves.
MightyString adds array functionality and other tools for Ruby strings, including matching, indexing, substitution, and deletion. MightyString::HTML.strip_html provides more ideal HTML-to-ASCII formatting output. This is an advanced block "filtering" module. It works very well, with extremely rare cases which fall through its fingers.
