Blink is a small public-access blog engine. It supports running multiple blogs, displays a main page and links for accessing older posts, and supports searching. Each blog can be oldest post first or newest post first. Any blog can be set to take public posts or allow comments. Admin functions include archiving all blogs, and viewing and deleting posts and comments. Posts can also utilize a semiotic bolding of definitions and automatic linking to all definitions. Anti-spam functionality is included, with an IP-based block list. All functionality is in one CGI file smaller than 15 KB.
Sous-marin Linux is a small, pure, individualized Slackware installation system using only scripts and a minimum of resources. Sous-marin's utilities allow you to create an installer CD and tagfiles, choose the minimum of pure Slackware packages you need, and then FTP/HTTP install the system over the Net. It also includes sous-marin tools, formerly SlackBash scripts. These tools allow you to analyze any Slackware installation for missing libraries, files not in packages, packages dependencies, and so forth.
Exchanges is a Bash CGI script for collaborative creation of manuscripts. It allows new entries to be injected between existing entries. Owners of entries may edit or delete them. Anyone may comment on them. By default, one views the entire document. Exchanges are directory-based, with a single CGI handling multiple writing projects.
Rho is a small, very powerful console-based POSIX text editor and mini-IDE with Bash/Emacs key bindings. A configuration file allows the user to create macros using not only any internal function but anything available to a shell command. Keyboard macros (Ctl-Alt-A through Z) can be sourced into the editor for each kind of task, the next sourcing overwriting the last. Rho also allows an unlimited number of templates (sh, awk, python, etc.) to be injected into executable buffers which trap stdout and stderr.
The goal of Cheix USB is a Linux image executing from a USB storage device into a running OS, either Linux or Windows, so that the host machine does not have to support booting from the USB device. The root filesystem and boot partitions are read-only to preserve the USB device. All writes are done in a tmpfs. The only writes to the USB storage device are those explicitly made by the user. Cheix's ISO can currently be used to create either a bootable USB or a hard-drive installation.
Pride combines bash scripts, zenity, ant, ImageMagick, and the Android tools to create a fast and simple POSIX alternative for Android development. It provides all the basic commands (clean, build, release, etc.) of other Android IDEs. But it is primarily a robust and simple injection framework. Injections from methods to clusters of activities are easily created from existing code and can then be injected into any project. Pride can also be used to batch build, load, or release multiple projects and can update class and resource files among projects that use the same objects or resources.
Huida is a lightweight Web-based help desk system for cases where there might be only a single responder. It could also be used for consulting, social services, or similar. It supports PayPal as a means for purchasing access to the system, has threaded queries and responses, and generates static pages of user-published content.
Never mind. Stats are back on oschina. Must have been a SQL bug effecting only ONE project. Or the fan club reconvened. Or the ??? downgraded the threat-level on Bash scripts. Oh well, a little drama was nice while it lasted.
Hoping to wake up on planet earth.
And speaking of China...
This morning there were the usual 37 followers on the pride page at oschina.net. This evening there were none.
Mmmm. So did 37 individuals fall into a black hole of synchronicity and unclick their follow-stars at the same moment. Did a Pride Fan Club violently disband? Or has this project been blacklisted by the ????
Ain't Open Source a hoot?
