Sun Mar 02 2003 21:29 What Do We Want? Software Roundup!:
- PixiePlus harnesses the well-known graphical acumen of pixies to display many popular and unpopular graphics formats. You can also use pixie dust to generate HTML image galleries, which I suppose makes sense; why should I have to create my HTML image galleries in a command line context where I can't even see the images?
- CVSHistory is a useful plug-in for CVSWeb that lets you slice the repository history in various ways. The more ambitious Bloof runs software metrics against a CVSWeb repository.
- Emacs MP3 player. Unfortunately, it's just a front-end to mpg123; it's not the whole MP3 player in Emacs Lisp.
- To me, mainly interesting for its name and pedigree: Enemies of Carlotta, a mailing list manager written by Lars Wirzenius.
- The cunning twocrypt encrypts two files, the real file and the "plausible deniability" file, into one; sort of like Rubberhose.
- LinPacker is a genetic algorithm for solving the bin-packing program. The website has a really cute navigation menu... but what operating system is it for?
- FormKit for Python crushes LOMP like a molehill of Japanese steel.
- Should I ever decide to implement the LiveJournal protocol in NewsBruiser, I can use ljchk to test it, because ljchk is an interface to the liveJournal protocol. The end.
- rb.log, a blogging program written in Ruby.
- Python Desktop Server, a weblog/RSS aggregator/dashboard for your Digital LifestyleTM.
- jSight The Freshmeat entry promises "A code generator set to create a user-defined system of Web robots", so watch out! Somewhere the author is cackling, "At last! My code generator is set to create a user-defined system of Web robots!" The page is all about using it in bioinformation applications, but either I completely misunderstand what it's for or it could be interesting in many other contexts, whenever you have a variety of related web applications with different interfaces.
- Comment, a minimal note taker.
