epto is a small library and framework for industrial strength shell script programming with sh. It features convenient error handling, tracing, logging, option handling, documentation template, process level transaction safety (sort of), and more. If one is used to shell programming, it takes less than five minutes of learning to start using it (see the crash course in the README file).
parexec executes multiple commands in parallel and displays their output clearly in one shell using ncurses, and makes it possible to terminate them all with one keystroke. The commands are read from stdin, and lines containing a single "-" instruct the program to wait until all previous commands have finished before executing further commands.
This shell script will extract all headers and bodies of a MIME email message recursively into a directory tree. It will also do the reverse operation, walking through a directory tree and regenerating a MIME email message. This script allows you to edit, delete, and add email message components as if they were files.
BASP (BAsh Server Pages) is a patch against Bash for processing HTML templates (or any documents) with embedded shell scripts. The advantage is that you have full access to the shell and system environment without learning yet another programming language. This project has been merged with BashDiff.
QConsole is a character terminal server over Bluetooth for Symbian devices, and a Linux and Windows terminal client. It uses the built in BlueTooth support on Symbian devices, and the userspace BlueZ Linux BlueTooth libraries. On Windows, it uses the embedded BlueTooth OS support. The QConsole server sets up an RFCOMM channel on the Symbian device and listens for connections. On the Linux and Windows side, the corresponding QTTY terminal allows a BlueTooth-enabled Linux/Windows box to connect to the QConsole server and execute a veriety of shell commands.
Termlock blanks a curses-compatible character terminal (e.g. xterm, eterm, PuTTY, konsole, dtterm, etc.) and locks it. To unlock the terminal, a password must be entered. The password, or rather the password hash, is stored in ~/.termlock. Basically, it's like a password-protected screensaver for character terminals. Written in pure Python, it should be immediately usable on any machine with Python and curses (or a compatible library such as ncurses) installed.
