JFtp – a graphical network browser. It supports various types of connections like FTP, SMB, SFTP, NFS, HTTP and local ones, has a nice Swing GUI, lots of features and can be started & (auto)updated using Java Web Start in any browser.

JFTP integrates the most widely used and widely accepted security mechanism, SSL (Secured Sockets Layer), to securely transfer your business critical and sensitive data. JFTP is written entirely in Java, meaning, it can run on a wide variety of platforms (Unix-like, Linux, BSD, Windows, Solaris, OS X, etc.).

It supports FTP using its own FTP API and various other protocols like SMB, SFTP, NFS, HTTP, and file I/O using third party APIs, includes many advanced features such as recursive directory up/download, browsing FTP servers while transferring files, FTP resuming and queueing, browsing the LAN for Windows shares, and more.

You can also have more than one connection open at a time in a mozilla-style tabbed browsing environment.
The FTP API is separated from the GUI and can also be used in third-party applications.

It should ideally be launched in a Web browser via Java Web Start (contained by the Java 1.6+ plugin), but can also be started locally.

JFtp is free and distributed under the GNU public license. The API is dual licensed, you may use it under the GPL in your project or negotiate with me about a commercial license.

Rawdog – a RSS reader with my configs and styles using html5 to mark feeds as read with collapsable items. It uses feedparser to download feeds in RSS, Atom and a variety of other formats, and (by default) produces static HTML pages containing the newest articles in date order.

Rawdog is designed to be invoked periodically by cron (or a similar task-scheduling mechanism). It stores data in flat files, so no database is required. It can use threads to download multiple feeds in parallel, and uses ETags, Last-Modified, and gzip compression to minimise network bandwidth usage.

Written in Python, rawdog is highly customisable and extendable. Its output is generated using templates, so it’s easy to integrate the output of rawdog into your own web pages. You can extend rawdog’s functionality using plugin modules written in Python — for example, you can provide output in different formats, or filter or modify incoming data from feeds.

Canto – an Atom/RSS feed reader for the console that is meant to be quick, concise, and colorful. It’s meant to provide a minimal, yet information packed interface. No navigating menus. No dense blocks of unreadable white text. An interface with almost infinite customization and extensibility using the excellent Python programming language.

The main features of Canto are:
– Atom/RSS/RDF compliant
– Fully supports Unicode
– Supports OPML
– Integrated with both graphical and text browsers
– Built in reader with full HTML parser and providing access to all links and enclosures (video/audio) in an item
– Uses feedparser to parse virtually any feed format on Earth
– Easily use custom filters to discard uninteresting items
– Ability to sort feeds with custom sorts
– Tags allow you to group items and feeds together
– Extremely flexible and powerful theming, including the ability to add extra content (like authors, dates, upvotes, comments, etc)

Everything used to configure Canto is actually part of the Python interpreter. It has all of the power of Python anywhere. Hooks are provided to allow you to perform actions on particular events (start, stop, update, resize, select, unselect, new), filters allow you to filter items out on arbitrary terms (globally or on a feed basis), and intelligent keybinds allow you to script your way to pretty much anything you want.

Examples:
– Use a keybind to write the item to a file, or mail it to a friend.
– Use a filter to only browse through items you haven’t read yet.
– Simply add content like an item’s tags or author to the reader.
– Sort feeds by date, alphabetically, by length, or by any other arbitrary criteria.
– Keybind your favorite search terms to cycle through them.
– Detect that your terminal is xterm or a tty and set the browser appropriately
– Arbitrary things, like change the theme based on the time of day

The point being that, with all of Python behind it, you can manipulate Canto in new and inventive ways without any help from me. My limited vision doesn’t encumber how you use the software.

Dropbox – a creative collaboration space designed to reduce busywork, bring your files together in one central place, and safely sync them across all your devices—so you can access them anytime, anywhere. And sending large files is easy, even to people who don’t have a Dropbox account. Features like the doc scanner, shared folders, offline access, and more make collaborating with others simple.

Dropbox is a backup service as well as for the synchronization of files, directories between many devices on which we have installed the appropriate client. Synchronized files and folders on our account can be shared with friends by publishing individual files or entire catalogs, as a result of which an unique link is generated (a good way to bypass the limitations of the volume of email attachments).
A useful function is also the ability to restore previous versions of files. There is also a photo gallery from Ajax technology for more interesting things.

The web interface is quite pleasant to use. It uses drag-and-drop technology, allowing you to move files by dragging icons from disk to browser.
