Speaking of which...
- Scapy is a Python tool for packet manipulation.
- drumpiler is a drum machine program with a little mini-language that includes functions. Sure beats writing a Perl script to generate Csound, like I did for Annoying Techno Music.
- emo2html is a script that turns a file generated in Emacs outline mode into HTML. Actually, here's otl2html, which is in Python, which trumps Perl.
- Wheel 'O Yum [sic] is an elaborate scheme to make it easier to decide at which nearby restaurant to eat, yet it merely solves the problem of negotiating between persons; individual people are still supposed to vote for their preference, and what if they can't decide? Argh!
- Brainfucker, a compiler for brainfuck. Transforms to assembler, C++, or an executable, all in <3k.
- Simple Blog System is written in PHP. It has a cool theme which I might ask to copy.
- darcs is one of those experimental version control systems (written in Haskell!).
- monotone is another experimental version control system which is probably the closest I'll ever get to
"Napster As A Version Control System"; rather than keep the code in a central repository, everyone keeps their own copy of the code and decides from whom they'll accept patches.
- Kodos, which was recently reviewed in LWN, is an interactive tool for defining regular expressions. Because Python uses basically the same regular expression syntax as everything else, it's not Python-specific, but unless you're into Python it's unlikely you'll put up with installing all the software on which Kodos depends.
- TinyTools is a bunch of handy add-ons for Emacs.
- Capon is another Python build system. Okay, Python is the best for build systems! It's the best for everything! You win! Torment me no more, spirit!
- simplisite is one of those programs for generating a static HTML website with a consistent look and feel. I should start using something like this instead of the horrible Noodle-esque thing I currently use.
