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.
RedWolf is a security threat simulator that tests security system effectiveness. Its threat generation capabilities include email, IM, malware, P2P, social networking, VoIP, DDoS, and many more. The guiding philosophy is that by generating realistic scenarios in a wide variety of categories, an auditor or organization can assess the effectiveness of network defenses. The scenario suite allows one to verify compliance with PCI-DSS, Sarbanes-Oxley, or HIPAA controls. RedWolf helps identify data loss risks and provides expert recommendations concerning risk mitigation. It reports present findings, recommendations, best practices, and blocking guidance in a straightforward, easily readable format. RedWolf also acts as a 'Red Team' agent, running drills to measure the readiness of your operations staff.
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.
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.
