DebSync is a Python command line tool which helps to synchronize a bunch of Debian GNU/Linux machines with respect to the list of packages installed. DebSync retrieves the list of installed packages from a master host, and then installs or removes packages on any number of other hosts to make them have the very same installed packages list as the master host.
DigicaMerge is a commandline tool to merge directories of pictures taken with digital cameras. If you've got a digital camera, your hard disk probably contains many directories full of pictures all named with the same names. This utility allows you to merge such directories' contents into a new directory, and renames all the pictures on the fly, ensuring no filename clash will occur. You can define your own naming scheme, using either a set of predefined variables or any recognized Exif tag which may be present in your pictures, and also specify a pattern to select only certain files.
JERED is a very easy-to-use C/C++ text editor for *NIX which provides C/C++ syntax color highlighting. Help is always on the screen, many-user configurable settings are available, and the user interface can be viewed in English, French, Finnish, Spanish or Russian (using the KOI-8 font).
PDFMap is a command line tool and Python library which eases the creation of very high quality maps in PDF format. You can place objects on the maps. Each object can be represented by either a shape or an image, and is scaled and rotated to reflect its original dimensions and orientation. You can make each object clickable in Adobe Acrobat Reader (e.g., to access a Web-enabled application from which you've extracted the data used to create the map).
pkpgcounter parses files and outputs the number of pages needed to print them. It can also, for certain file formats, compute the percentage of ink colors covering each page. It currently recognizes almost 20 Page Description Languages or file formats, including the most used ones like Postscript, PDF, the PCL family, DVI, OpenDocument, or even Microsoft Word, corresponding to hundreds of different printer drivers. This utility and Python library is often used as the PDL parsing engine in print accounting software like PyKota or JASMine, but can of course be used independently.
PyKota is a full featured, internationalized, centralized, and extensible print quota system for CUPS. It supports PostgreSQL, OpenLDAP, MySQL, or SQLite as the quota database backend. This software features most of what you might expect from a modern print quota and accounting solution. Its flexibility and configurability greatly eases its integration into your own computing environment.
PyKotIcon is a generic, extensible, networked, cross-platform dialog box manager. It is often used as an end user companion for the PyKota print accounting system, but is completely independent. Its remotely accessible API is well documented, so using it from your own application is easy. It can display informational messages, optionally ask for confirmation or cancellation, and can also create and display free content input forms over the network.
