plumb is a shell with focus on pipes: instead of pipelines, it can build large graphs of processes (nodes) and pipes (edges). Pipes are simple unidirectional streams without side effects. Traffic can be controlled by virtual processes (which are nodes just like real processes, but are implemented in plumb for minimal overhead). Virtual processes can split, merge, regex filter/alter, and shape the streams. Timers and starting/stopping processes or even rewiring the script on the fly are also supported. It is portable (using libporty) and behaves exactly the same way on Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, many BSD variants, and older UNIX systems.
libmawk is a fork of mawk 1.3.3 restructured for embedding. It allows you to embed awk interpreters in any application written in C or in a language that can interface C libraries. This allows the application to have plugins, configuration, run control, and AI written in awk. It extends the original feature set of mawk with modularity (C-style include), save/load of compiled bytecode, function calling by name-in-string (substitute for pointers/references), and accounting and limiting of memory and CPU use. While awk as a language does not offer OOP and complex data structures, it is still reasonably powerful. A major advantage is the short learning curve for new users.
PinaCart is a webshop constructor. Use it as a shopping cart engine to create a chain of online stores or build your own SaaS ecommerce platform and allow your clients to create and manage their online stores. Just download and install PinaCart to start getting clients, then you can customize and expand the software, develop and sell your own set of skins and templates, and come up with new features and functionality.
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.
MetaPath is a tool for the analysis of metabolic pathways and associated visualization of experimental data. Built on the MetaCyc database, it provides an interactive map in which multiple pathways can be simultaneously visualized. Multiple annotations from the MetaCyc database are available, including synonyms, associated reactions and pathways, and database unification links. Metabolomics change data can be imported via simple CSV formats for visualization on targeted pathways. Pathways can be mined and removed algorithmically to identify key regulated pathways within a given dataset, providing a simper route to metabolic functions.
