Dave's Software Section
Here we have a collection of Free/Open Source sotware that I've worked on to
- A lightweight web calendar for apache and mod_perl featuring...
- No groupware feature bloat. If you just want to advertise events, you
don't need it, so why support it?
- No database backend required. All data is stored in text files.
- Version 1.0 and 1.1 run in native mod_perl, without requiring PHP, ASP,
JSP, etc. Version 2 is a rewrite using vanilla CGI, so you no longer
need to be the apache admin to install it. This rewrite isn't quite
complete yet, but you can download what is there as version 1.9.x,
which does everything that 1.0/1.1 does with the sole exception of
web-based admin of repeating events.
- Everything is template-driven except the actual monthly calendar itself.
Slap on your own headers and footers, link to different views from within
event listings, all sorts of good stuff like that. (When version 2.0
is complete everything will be template-driven without
- cron-style system for handling recurring events.
- Events can be divided into categories and the calendar instructed to
display all events, a single category, or any set of categories.
- Three display modes: tabular monthly calendar and list of upcoming
events with or without details. Version 1.9/2.0 adds the option of
sorting the list views by descending date and limiting display to a
fixed number of items, so you can even use it for blogging! (See my
brewing log for an
example of this.)
See it in action, serving up
my mead brewing log.
March 8, 2002 - I just discovered that, last August, DaveCentral (how
appropriate!) wrote up a very complimentary review of LowCal and even gave it
their Best of Linux Award! (Link removed as DaveCentral no longer exists.)
- stripmime 0.8.3a-dps
- Feed a text file into this perl script and get MIME-free text out!
- Originally by Adam Glass,
I've added some
options which allow you to display the names of removed MIME sections.
- Main project site:
- The black sheep:
Duel (DOS executable)
- Face the Black Knight in a duel to the death...
This is the original implementation of the
Biting Blades combat system. It
was originally released as shareware, and I guess I'll leave it as
such. I can't GPL it because I've lost the source code, which is
probably just as well, given that I think I would die of
embarrassment if my circa-1992 code were to be made public...
I'm also hoping to get scwap, a utility for reusing ssh connections, up
I wrote it for hire and the owner hasn't actually released it yet. Then
there are all my half-started projects
that aren't useful enough to distribute yet...
