Dandelion is a 3D graph rendering application which can be controlled across a network. Its main purpose is to allow clear network graphs to be rendered in a window, which can be controlled by a separate application or the user. The Dandelion visualization is actually controlled by issuing simple commands to it across the network (although this could all be happening on a single machine). The Dandelion source includes a set of very simple libraries which can be incorporated into other applications and which can be used to send these commands. Libraries are included for C, C#, Java, and Python. The project was developed at Liverpool John Moores University within the PROTECT Centre.
wwan-helper is a script that establishes a UMTS connection using a Ericsson F3507g Mobile Broadband Module. It was designed to be used with a ThinkPad T420s. It takes care of resetting and reinitializing the modem if the hardware fails to get a WWAN connection, and retries as often as necessary until the UMTS connection is really established. It is meant to run as a hook script for the ifup / ifdown mechanism, but should also work on other networking systems.
RoboZombie allows easy integration with remote services by allowing you to replicate an endpoint contract and generate a proxy to access it. Contracts can be very flexible in terms of the resources they access. These could be vary from static HTML content or an RRS feed, to a RESTful web service endpoint. Each endpoint contract is specified on a single interface using annotations to provide the communication metadata. It is then wired into your code via an annotation, where it is created, cached, and injected at runtime.
Collage is a cross-platform C++ library for building heterogenous, distributed applications. Among other things, it is the cluster backend for the Equalizer parallel rendering framework. It provides an abstraction of different network connections, peer-to-peer messaging, node discovery, synchronization, and high-performance, object-oriented, versioned data distribution. It is designed for low-overhead multi-threaded execution, which allows applications to easily exploit multi-core architectures.
TuxBot is an IRC bot written in Lua. It was created to fit the requirements of the #linux channels on irc.oftc.net and irc.esper.net, but it is also used as a helpful bot in some other, non-Linux channels on other networks. The bot is able to link Linux channels on different networks by relaying messages between them. It is also able to kick flooders and to show the title of HTML pages after someone posted a link in a channel. Furthermore, TuxBot works as a raw multi-network IRC client for the console. There are some other features, such as the ability to extend TuxBot’s functionality using a simple module system.
