Soxer is a Web publishing tool intended for the lazy programmer and designer. It allows the creation and maintenance of document driven Web sites, such as corporate sites, blogs, and project sites, and is also extremely useful for creating mockups for database driven applications. It forms a very thin layer above Sinatra to deliver data from a set of YAML files rather than a database.

itch41 parses a file of level 3 NASDAQ stock exchange data, such as ftp://emi.nasdaq.com/ITCH/S030711-v41.txt.gz.
