The Virtual Observatory Quantity Data Model (VOQDM) package is a "thing"-based data model for use with scientific and mathematical data in the International Virtual Observatory (IVO). It is built upon the QML (Quantity Model Language) package and, in general terms, enables fast, convenient serialization/deserialization/manipulation of Quantity-based objects and documents. An important specific application for this package is to enable the I/O of VO-catalog-based data.
HyperLinked Text (Hylt) is both a file format and a viewer for that format. It uses (almost) flat text files to generate a Wiki-style database of hyperlinked pages, without either the complex markup of HTML or the esoteric database formats in which most Wikis store data. It is geared towards users who desire a minimal interface between them and their data or like to store their data in formats which can be meaningfully stored in version control systems. It was developed originally to match both of those goals, specifically for individuals writing fiction and wishing to track inter-character and inter-location relationships.
blurt is Web publishing ("blogging") software. Unlike most blogging software, it does not provide you with a fancy back office, heavy duty database backends, and massive user management systems. Instead, you upload documents ("posts") in simple text format (.txt) to a directory on your Web server. blurt will figure out the rest.
svncommit_hook.php was written to address the numerous problems with the commit_email.pl script which is bundled with subversion. Email messages sent by this script are sent as multipart messages with each diff in its own part. All of the parts are sent as nicely formatted HTML. It is possible to specify the charset of the files in the repository (the default is still UTF-8). Diffs are displayed only for the modified files. Diffs are colored. PHP files are validated with "php -l". It is possible to specify the URL of a corresponding Trac-resource, and the links to the files will be automatically included in the email.
CASTORE (CApitalization & STORagE) takes place in a user-centered design approach to build an open archive platform, planned to create institutional repositories, managed by librarians in their respective institutions. With this system, the authors are able to store, convert (XML), fully index, manage, perpetuate, valorize, and distribute their digital documents. It uses an assembly of components (Tomcat, OO, JDO, Saxon, Lucene, etc.) to build middleware applications, relying on XML and any relational database. The system has been developed with a component architecture (J2EE) to be able to integrate the platform with any intranet environment with the minimum cost of development.
tag-not-ed is a system that allows you to create and manage text documents by attaching tags to them. Later, documents can be retrieved by running queries on those tags (e.g., "show me all docs that deal with 'dogs' and 'cats'"). It is composed of a front-end (currently a mode for the jed text editor) and an indexer. The latter can be used to implement a rudimentary "tagging file system".
