PiSi is a modern package manager for UNIX systems. It has been designed to meet the requirements of the Pardus Linux distribution, and it is not derived from any other package manager. It is efficient and small. Package sources are written in XML and Python. Fast database access is implemented with Berkeley DB. It integrates both low-level and high-level package operations. Sources can be maintained easily through a version control system as original sources do not have to be copied. It uses a framework approach to build applications and tools upon. It has both a comprehensive CLI and a user-friendly Qt-based GUI.
Nexenta is a complete GNU-based operating system built on top of the OpenSolaris kernel and runtime. The Debian system is used for software distribution and packaging to glue the numerous pieces together. However, Nexenta is not currently part of the Debian Project, nor are its packages present in the Debian database. It includes Apache, MySQL, Perl, Python, PHP, Firefox, Evolution, a software update manager, Synaptic package manager, Gaim, Abiword, administration and development utilities, editors, graphics, GNOME, interpreters, libraries, and much more.
ControlTier is a set of tools and an automation framework for deploying and managing multi-tier Web applications (or any application stack). It orchestrates the deployment and updating of code, data, and content across multiple physical, virtual, or cloud-based servers or clusters. Multiple tools include a command dispatching framework, a self-service Web interface, a multi-purpose CMBD/inventory tool, and a reporting infrastructure. Tools can be used individually or as an integrated system for large scale use.
MacPorts makes the world of open source software available to your Mac. There are over 5600 software titles ("ports"), each one installable with a single command. This is probably the biggest, most up to date open source software collection for Mac OS X. MacPorts works much like the ports collections of the major BSD operating systems.
Easy SVN is a subversion browser via the Web. It's easy because only a command line svn program and Perl are required to run it; no extra software needs to be installed. After configuring the Perl script as cgi-bin program, SVN repositories can be navigated, and entries viewed for contents, history, and diffs.
The Mknew Project is an investigation of how to build simple Unix shell scripts to manage common development and administrative tasks. The emphasis is on using languages and tools that already exist and are in common use. A related emphasis is on exploring the functional programming nature of the bash shell. This is accomplished by using the bash function capability, and using the bash "$(" ")"syntax to delay function execution in bash scripts. This allows building scripts that have a LISP-like function syntax that permits shell scripts to be written as a series of function calls with minimal syntax. The goal is to provide a way to specify make procedures of heterogeneous components in a bash script. These can include diverse source code languages, documentation text, test procedures, and data. In addition to the mknew function library (mklib), these "make" procedures rely only on capabilities provided by the bash shell, and common Unix command line utilities.
FireAnt is an Eclipse plugin for modeling complex remote deployment and configuration processes for EJBs. It allows developers to model the deployment and execution of groups of packages and configuration scripts on remote targets. After modeling a deployment plan, FireAnt's runtime infrastructure SSHs into each target, copies over the specified files, deploys the EJBs and Webapps, runs any required deployment scripts, and then cleans the staging environment.
