“arrow” Package for Complete Python Date/Time Manipulation
The “arrow” package, to reduce the number of packages that you need to rely on to do what you need to do:
RFC 6143 Remote Framebuffer Protocol
The “Remote Framebuffer Protocol”, which does exactly what you’d think it would. The fun part is that it’s even supported as a subprotocol under Websockets.
Leap Motion for Gesture-Based Applications
There was even a pull-request to 2048 to introduce gesture support: https://github.com/gabrielecirulli/2048/pull/149
There’s also potential investment funding for good ideas:
“Non-Sucking Service Manager” for Windows
Schedule Windows applications that don’t support being Windows services as Windows services.
Building a Distributed Filesystem with GlusterFS
GlusterFS is a relatively easy, distributed, C-based filesystem. I ran across a good tutorial for it:
The Julia dynamic, technical language, for efficient, distributed development. It also built on LLVM, and has the beautiful IJulia interface. From the homepage:
- Multiple dispatch: providing ability to define function behavior across many combinations of argument types
- Dynamic type system: types for documentation, optimization, and dispatch
- Good performance, approaching that of statically-compiled languages like C
- Built-in package manager
- Lisp-like macros and other metaprogramming facilities
- Call Python functions: use the PyCall package
- Call C functions directly: no wrappers or special APIs
- Powerful shell-like capabilities for managing other processes
- Designed for parallelism and distributed computation
- Coroutines: lightweight “green” threading
- User-defined types are as fast and compact as built-ins
- Automatic generation of efficient, specialized code for different argument types
- Elegant and extensible conversions and promotions for numeric and other types
- Efficient support for Unicode, including but not limited to UTF-8
- MIT licensed: free and open source
My first impression is that this is like XSLT (if XSLT applied to normal HTML) and jQuery.live(), combined.
