XINS is a technology used to define, create, and invoke remote APIs. XINS is specification-oriented. When API specifications are written (in XML), XINS will transform them to HTML-based documentation and Java code for both the client-side and the server-side. The communication is based on HTTP. XINS competes with the complex SOAP technology. Main design goals include simplicity, scalability, and testability. XINS is not only a specification technology, but also an application development framework. It offers transaction logging, unique log documentation, and active code generation.
Tellico is a collection manager for KDE. It includes default collections for books, bibliographies, comic books, videos, music, video games, coins, stamps, trading cards, and wines, and also allows custom collections. Unlimited user-defined fields are allowed. Filters are available to limit the visible entries by definable criteria. Full customization for printing is possible through editing the default XSLT file. It can import CSV, Bibtex, Bibtexml, RIS, MODS, CDDB, and audio file metadata and exports CSV, HTML, Bibtex, Bibtexml, ONIX, and PilotDB. Entries may be imported directly from Amazon.com, imdb.com, any z39.50 bibliographic server, PubMed, or an external script.
metaf2xml can download, parse, and decode aviation routine weather reports (METAR, SPECI, SAO), aerodrome forecasts (TAF), synoptic observations (SYNOP), and BUOY observations, and store the data as XML. XSLT style sheets convert it to plain language, as HTML or text. Current weather data from NOAA and other sources can be fetched and displayed.
The DocBook Authoring and Publishing Suite (DAPS) provides a tool set for easy creation and publication of DocBook sources on Linux. It lets you create HTML (including Webhelp), PDF, EPUB, man pages, and other formats with a single command. It automatically takes care of validating and filtering (profiling) your sources and automatically converts images into a format best suited for the output format. You can easily create profiled source tarballs for translation or review. DAPS supports authors by providing linkchecker, validator, spellchecker, and editor macros. It is well suited to manage large documentation projects with multiple authors using the DAPS docmanager.
ClaSS (ClaSS Student System) is a complete student tracking, reporting, and information management system. It extends the reach of traditional school information systems by using the latest in Web application methodologies. It aims to be the ubiquitous classroom information assistant for schools.
betterFORM is an implementation of the W3C XForms 1.1 Recommendation. It allows easy creation of highly dynamic Web 2.0 user interfaces with attractive controls and layout. You can add validations, calculations, actions, and events to build complete Web applications in a declarative way.
Molinos CMS is a modular CMS. It supports multiple Web sites per installation, multiple domains per Web site, and different subdomains for different Web site sections. It uses XSLT for templating; templates can be organized in themes, which can be applied to either all pages or particular pages. It can use MySQL or SQLite for data stoarge; all data is available in XML format, ready to use by templates and scripts. User groups (roles) and advanced ACL can be used to control access to that data. It supports many caching and code optimization techniques. Data storage is optimized to minimize queries required to display pages. There are modules for integrating with various third-party services (over 70 modules). Modules are simple to write using the provided documentation (currently only available in Russian). Web sites can use local and system modules simultaneously. It works with most Web servers, and has a built-in Web server (for localhost development). It also has a CLI for most tasks.
