Lich is a cross-platform multithreaded interpreter meant exclusively for use with text-based MUDs. Its primary goal is to provide a dynamic and extensible framework that offers advanced users the ability to customize the application and its functionality to their needs while remaining accessible and useful to the majority of players. It supports scripting in Ruby, Simutronics "Wizard", and, in Unix environments, any language with an interpreter program.
Rant is a flexible build tool. The equivalent to a Makefile for make is the Rantfile, which is actually a valid Ruby script that is read in by the rant command. It currently features automated testing, packaging, and RDoc generation for Ruby applications and libraries, creation of gzipped tar and zip archives on all supported platforms without additional software, recognition of file changes based on MD5 checksums, dependency checking for C/C++ source files (makedepend is not required), and more. It can generate a script tailored to the needs of a specific project, which can be used instead of an Rant installation so that users aren't dependent on Rant.
Arachno Ruby IDE is a development environment with an Emacs-like editor, an integrated very fast GUI debugger, source code browsing, live syntax checking, a local Apache environment for developing/debugging CGIs and integrated FTP, and a GNU diff frontend. The debugger offers an easy way to debug CGI and ERuby Web applications. It runs on Windows 2000 and XP, SuSE Linux 9.1/9.2, and other 2.6 kernel Linux distributions.
AntFlow builds upon Apache Ant to provide a new approach to simplifying system automation that uses pipelines of hot folders chained together to perform a given task. Using XML, it associates an automated task such as data transfer, encryption, or XML processing with a directory on the local system. Whenever a file is copied or written into the hot folder, the associated task is executed and the file is moved to the next hot folder in the pipeline for further processing.
