Estimer is a Redmine plugin that allows you to estimate your software projects. It can calculate two types of software estimations: function point estimations (IFPUG) and use case estimations. Function point estimations are software estimations based on function points. A function point is a unit of measurement to express the amount of business functionality that the information system provides to users. Use case estimations are software estimations based on use cases and actors.
The FIX message viewer is a set of Ruby scripts that parse FIX (Financial Information eXchange protocol) messages to display them in a more human-readable format. The viewer can only parse FIX messages in a file or from STDIN. It also expects a full FIX message on each line. The FIX message can be prepended with a timestamp, but this will be ignored. The output is colored to make it easier to read, and the MsgType field is highlighted. The log viewer works on the command line only, and requires that Ruby is installed.
Karma is a Web service provider for tracking "karma" points of users who are distributed across several separate Web applications. It is useful for when sites want to allow community contributions to content, but certain higher types of content should only be able to be submitted by people who have demonstrated the ability to contribute value at lower levels. The vision is to create a generic karma service where a central server instance provides its services to several related Web applications. Those applications are the clients of the karma server instance. They can quickly and securely submit and retrieve karma for their users.
Shapado is a multi-topic and multi-language question-and-answer Web site service à la StackOverFlow where users can vote on questions and answers and receive karma. Unlike StackOverFlow, people can ask questions on various topic by picking a category (science, programming, business, politics, etc.). It is also possible to subscribe to categories or groups of categories.
RiskMNGT is a Redmine plugin that allows you to manage risks and incidents in your projects. You can define a risk or incident from its description, type, impact, probability, exposure level, owner, mitigation strategy, and contingency strategy. You can control the traceability between your risks and new requests for change, tasks and your code. In conjunction with the RequMNGT Redmine requirement management plugin, you could relate the risks to the different artifacts of your software project: feature, requirement, use case, classes, test case, etc. A database of risks and incidents can be defined for reusing best practice mitigation strategies.
GetYourIDX Ruby Library is a library that implements the GetYourIDX API in Ruby. GetYourIDX provides IDX data services to real estate agents and brokers. IDX technology gives participants in multiple listing services (MLS) the essential tools needed to display each others' clients on their prospective Internet sites. Under the IDX real estate system, brokers agree to display each others listings on the Internet and are provided the option of what listings they want displayed.
Chef is a systems integration framework, built to bring the benefits of configuration management to your entire infrastructure. With Chef, you can manage your servers by writing code, not by running commands (via Cookbooks), integrate tightly with your applications, databases, LDAP directories, and more (via Libraries), and easily configure applications that require knowledge about your entire infrastructure ("What systems are running my application?" "What is the current master database server?").
