The Big Faceless Java PDF Viewer is a Swing component that can display PDF documents. It is intended for developers who don't require the full API. The PDF Viewer can be installed as an applet, an application, via Java Web Start, or embedded in a Swing application. Printing, saving, text search, forms, digital signatures, and annotations are some of the many features available. The viewer can be tailored to include just the features you need, and is a cost-effective solution for those needing the features of Adobe Acrobat on a Java platform.
Wnotes are small, self-contained text notes for X Window System desktops. You can create, type, cut-and-paste, and save notes in any combination you like. Wnotes let you store notes and their window configurations using any database which accepts input from the Unix shell. It is compatible with most Linux and Unix desktops. The source code package includes sdb, a simple note database written as a bash script, and other examples of how to use Wnotes.
Synth is a C++ template framework - a set of components that can be mixed and matched to build the right functionality; furthermore, components are loosely-coupled, designed to be both extensible and replaceable. Synth blurs the line between compile-time and runtime, and it does so by blending the static C++ type system, the dynamic values that need to be manipulated and formatted, including those from other languages, and the templates to do so. The name is an allusion to this synthesis process, which combines values to generate new ones (streams, files, strings, numbers, etc.)
iCaption is a soft subtitle editor, utilizing timeline based editing. Soft subs are files stored separately from the video file, rendered in real-time as the video plays. iCaption is extremely simple to use and allows you to create, open, edit, and save SubRip and YouTube files.
GNU Recutils is a set of tools and libraries to access human-editable text-based databases called recfiles. A recfile contains data structured as a sequence of records. The rec format supports data integrity with the usage of record descriptors (keys, mandatory fields, field types, etc.) as well as the ability of record fields to refer to other records. Despite its simplicity, recfiles can be used to store medium-sized databases. The GNU recutils suite comprises a texinfo manual describing the Rec format, a C library (librec) providing a rich set of functions to access rec files, a set of C utilities that can be used in shell scripts and in the command line to operate on rec files, and an Emacs mode (rec-mode).
Tactor is a tool that tries to guess the best action for the current text selection. For example, text containing http://xyz.com is recognized as an URL link, and ~/Documents/MyPresentation.key as a presentation file. Both matchers and actions are fully customizable. It is loosely based on Plan9’s Plumber where any text can potentially be an action, although the actual technical implementation is very different. It provides functionality somewhat similar to that of Apple Data Detectors in a way that is fully extensible and transparent.
Thot takes as input text in a wiki-like format and outputs results for different formats: HTML, Latex, DocBook, and PDF. Although delivered with only one input language (Dokuwiki format), Thot is very versatile and easy to extend. For example, the initial version allows you to embed a document description from different entities: source language, GraphViz DOT graphs, Latex math, etc.
pyexpander is a macro processor based on Python. Instead of simple text replacement, it offers evaluation of arbitrary Python expressions and execution of Python code. It features simple syntax definition: all expander commands start with a dollar sign ("$") followed by word characters, parameters, Python code enclosed in brackets, or a combination of these. The full power of the Python programming language can be used, including all operators, functions and modules. Any Python expression can be used to insert text. It also provides a Python library that you can use to develop other macro tools based on pyexpander.
