oed2dict is a set of scripts that convert the full Oxford English Dictionary v2 (CD-ROM version 3.0) into the jargon and DICT file formats. These can then be consulted with any DICT compatible dictionary lookup program. The resulting DICT files are much faster to use when compared with the proprietary program from the original distribution, and are significantly smaller, with the whole database only weighing around 190MiB.
Finit is a small SysV init replacement with process supervision similar to that of daemontools and runit. Its focus is on small and embedded GNU/Linux systems, although it is fully functional on standard server and desktop installations. Finit is fast because it starts services in parallel; it then supervises and automatically restarts them if they fail. This can be extended upon with custom callbacks for all services, hooks into the boot process, or plugins to extend the functionality and adapt Finit to your needs. Finit is not only fast, it’s arguably one of the easiest to get started with. A complete system can be booted with one simple configuration file.
Micro Tetris is based on the 1989 International Obfuscated C Code Contest Best Game entry. It is a very small implementation, with extreme similarity to the BSD Tetris implementation. So it is very suitable for small embedded systems with only serial or SSH console access. The code uses no curses or other heavy libraries, only ANSI escape sequences and the Unix "stty" command to setup and restore the display.
s6-networking is a collection of small Unix tools designed to help networking. It includes clock synchronization, Unix and TCP super-servers, Unix and TCP access control, and other miscellaneous utilities. It is particularly suited for management of clients and servers on embedded devices, but works just as well on larger systems.
Werc is a minimalistic RESTful Web application framework and content management system. It follows the Unix "tool philosophy" and it is designed to be fast, simple, convenient, and easily extensible. It handles both small and big sites and has a flexible system for user and group permissions. All data is stored in plain text files that can be easily manipulated with standard tools, without using any databases or other external dependencies. Existing applications include a blogging engine with RSS/Atom feeds, a wiki system that can easily integrate pre-existing documents (can be enabled for any directory tree), and others.
