Newsboat – an RSS/Atom feed reader for text terminals. RSS and Atom are a number of widely-used XML formats to transmit, publish and syndicate articles, for example news or blog articles. Newsboat is designed to be used on text terminals on Unix or Unix-like systems such as GNU/Linux, BSD or macOS.

Its interface draws inspiration from mutt and slrn.

Newsboat is a fork of abandoned Newsbeuter.

Robocopy (Robocopy.exe) – a Windows Command Prompt tool designed to replicate or migrate files and directories between servers. Creates a log with the result of an operation, acting as a script / service, or the ability to resume a failed operation makes this tool extremely handy and better than most GUI programs. In addition, Robocopy.exe works multithreaded (by default it handles 8 files at the same time), which significantly shortens the data migration time.

This tool is available on systems from Vista / 2008 up.

Features:
– Copy files over a network with resume capabilities
– Can skip NTFS junction points causing failure typically from infinite loops
– Copy file and directory attributes preserving timestamps
– Copy NTFS permissions, owners, and auditing info
– Copy directory timestamps
– Copy files in ‘backup’ mode to ensure files are copied even those rights have been denied to the administrator
– Automatic retries
– Sync two folders
– Skips files already copied
– Copy paths larger than the 256 character path limit
– Perform asynchronous copies using its multithreading ability
– Returns standardized exit codes for use in scripts

Interface: CLI
Programing language: Go
First release: July 2014

Rclone – a command line program to manage files on cloud storage. It is a feature rich alternative to cloud vendors’ web storage interfaces. Over 40 cloud storage products support rclone including S3 object stores, business & consumer file storage services, as well as standard transfer protocols.

Rclone has powerful cloud equivalents to the unix commands rsync, cp, mv, mount, ls, ncdu, tree, rm, and cat. Rclone’s familiar syntax includes shell pipeline support, and –dry-run protection. It is used at the command line, in scripts or via its API.

Virtual backends wrap local and cloud file systems to apply encryption, caching, compression chunking and joining.

Rclone mounts any local, cloud or virtual filesystem as a disk on Windows, macOS, linux and FreeBSD, and also serves these over SFTP, HTTP, WebDAV, FTP and DLNA.

Rclone is widely used on Linux, Windows and Mac. Third party developers create innovative backup, restore, GUI and business process solutions using the rclone command line or API.

Rclone does the heavy lifting of communicating with cloud storage.

Features:
– Transfers:
** MD5, SHA1 hashes are checked at all times for file integrity
** Timestamps are preserved on files
** Operations can be restarted at any time
** Can be to and from network, e.g. two different cloud providers
** Can use multi-threaded downloads to local disk
– Copy new or changed files to cloud storage
– Sync (one way) to make a directory identical
– Move files to cloud storage deleting the local after verification
– Check hashes and for missing/extra files
– Mount your cloud storage as a network disk
– Serve local or remote files over HTTP/WebDav/FTP/SFTP/dlna
– Experimental Web based GUI

GNU Mailutils – a rich and powerful protocol-independent mail framework. It contains a series of useful mail libraries, clients, and servers.

These are the primary mail utilities for the GNU system. The central library is capable of handling electronic mail in various mailbox formats and protocols, both local and remote. Specifically, this project contains a POP3 server, an IMAP4 server, and a Sieve mail filter. It also provides a POSIX “mailx” client and a collection of other handy tools.

Mailutils is oriented toward three kinds of audiences: regular users, system administrators, and developers of email-handling software.

Regular users will find here an implementation of the traditional UNIX mail reader mail, command line utilities, such as frm, messages, readmsg, and sieve — a flexible utility for filtering the incoming mail.

A special feature of Mailutils is an implementation of the MH Message Handling System, which combines a power of the UNIX philosophy with a flexibility of Mailutils libraries, thus allowing to easily incorporate mail from remote mailboxes.

For system administrators, Mailutils provides a set of daemons for delivering and reading electronic mail, including pop3d, imap4d, local mail transport daemon lmtpd, and a universal mail delivery agent, mda, and LMTP daemon.

mmh (meillo’s mail handler) – a mail user agent (reader/sender), a command-line based mail reader that is powerful and extensible. mmh is an excellent choice for people who receive and process a lot of mail.

Unlike most mail user agents, mmh is not a single program, rather it is a set of programs that are run from the shell. This allows the user to utilize the full power of the Unix shell in coordination with mmh.

Mmh is a modified version of the electronic mail handling system nmh. Nmh (new MH) itself was originally based on the package MH-6.8.3, and was intended to be a (mostly) compatible drop-in replacement for MH. In contrast, mmh is not intended to be a drop-in replacement for nmh, rather mmh breaks compatibility to nmh in order to modernize and simplify it.

Nyxt – a keyboard-oriented, extensible web-browser designed for power users. Conceptually inspired by Emacs and Vim, it has familiar key-bindings (Emacs, vi, CUA), is fully configurable and extensible in Lisp, and has powerful features for productivity.

Features:
– Fast tab switching – Switch easily between your open tabs via fuzzy search.
– Multiple selection – Commands can accept multiple inputs, allowing you to quickly perform an operation against multiple objects. In the example below we search for penguins, and only open up links that have the text “animal” within them.
– Powerful bookmarks – Bookmark a page with tags. Search bookmarks with compound queries. Capture more data about your bookmarks, and group and wrangle them in any way you like.
– Multi tab search – Search multiple tabs at the same time, and view all the results in a single window. Jump quickly through your open tabs to find what you need.
– History as a tree – History is represented as a tree that you can traverse. Smarter than the “forwards-backwards” abstraction found in other browsers, the tree makes sure you never lose track of where you’ve been.

MCabber – a small console based Jabber/XMPP client. MCabber includes features such as SASL/SSL/TLS support, MUC (Multi-User Chat) support, history logging, command completion, OpenPGP encryption, OTR (Off-the-Record Messaging) support, dynamic modules and external action triggers.

MCabber is released under the GNU GPL, and has been tested on GNU/Linux, BSD, Mac OS X and Cygwin.

Some features of mcabber:
– SASL/SSL/TLS support.
– MUC support (Multi-User Chat).
– PGP, OTR support
– Chat States support (typing notifications)
– History logging: If enabled (see the CONFIGURATION FILE section), mcabber can save discussions to text history log files.
– Commands completion: If possible, mcabber will try to complete your command line if you hit the Tab key.
– Input line history: Any message or command entered is in the input line history and can be reused easily.
– External actions: Some events (like receiving a message) can trigger an external action such as a shell script if you enable it in your configuration file. A sample events script (“eventcmd”) is provided with mcabber source code, in the contrib directory.
– Modules: mcabber can load modules (a.k.a. plugins) at runtime that extend its features.
