OpenNode is a server virtualization solution that provides an easy-to-use (CentOS/RHEL based) bare-metal ISO installer that supports both OpenVZ container-based and KVM full virtualization technology on the same host. The OpenNode ISO installer will set up a minimal CentOS server system with the following features: a RHEL kernel (provided by OpenVZ project) modified to support both openvz and kvm virtualization, libvirt management interface support for openvz and kvm hypervisors, func (https://fedorahosted.org/func/) client support for central management purposes, and VM template downloads provided by the opennode TUI utility.
repla can turn any command into a shell. It does this by prepending the name of a command to each commandline before executing it. It can also add lists of arguments which are often needed, either prefixed or affixed to the commandline. It really shines with vcs or build commands, such as git, svn, hg, make, configure, etc.
plumb is a shell with focus on pipes: instead of pipelines, it can build large graphs of processes (nodes) and pipes (edges). Pipes are simple unidirectional streams without side effects. Traffic can be controlled by virtual processes (which are nodes just like real processes, but are implemented in plumb for minimal overhead). Virtual processes can split, merge, regex filter/alter, and shape the streams. Timers and starting/stopping processes or even rewiring the script on the fly are also supported. It is portable (using libporty) and behaves exactly the same way on Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, many BSD variants, and older UNIX systems.
Ybot is erlang bot software inspired by Github hubot. It supports IRC and XMPP transports and is extensible with plugins. Plugins can be written with Python, Ruby, or shell. It supports IRC chat, XMPP multi user chat, and 37 signals Campfire chat. It can simultaneously run any number of bots on different transports.
Changing directories in bash can be tedious if you have long names or nested paths. Creating aliases or adding to the CDPATH can help, but can be improved on. Bashcd adds 6 new commands to make changing directories a bit easier. This commands use find, the locate database, the mdfind database, or other contextual information to make it easier to change to other directories.
HOMER is a robust, carrier-grade, scalable SIP capturing system and monitoring application with hEP, IP Proto4 (IPIP) encapsulation, and port mirroring/monitoring support right out of the box, ready to process and store large amounts of signaling with instant searches, end-to-end analysis, and drill-down capabilities for ITSPs, VoIP providers, and trunk suppliers using SIP signaling.
