Anyterm consists of some Javascript on a web page, an XmlHttpRequest channel on standard ports back to the server, an HTTP proxy such as Apache's mod_proxy and the Anyterm daemon. The daemon uses a pseudo-terminal to communicate with a shell or other application, and includes terminal emulation.

Key presses are picked up by the Javscript which sends them to the daemon; changes to the emulated screen are sent from the daemon to the Javascript which updates its display.

Performance is quite reasonable and SSL can be used to secure the connection.

Shell In A Box implements a web server that can export arbitrary command line tools to a web based terminal emulator. This emulator is accessible to any JavaScript and CSS enabled web browser and does not require any additional browser plugins. Most typically, login shells would be exported this way: shellinaboxd -s /:LOGINThis command starts a web server at http://localhost:4200 that allows users to login with their username and password and to get access to their login shell. All client-server communications are encrypted, if SSL/TLS certificates have been installed.

The Fault-Tolerant Shell (ftsh) is a small language for system integration that makes failures a first class concept. Ftsh aims to combine the ease of scripting with very precise error semantics. It is especially useful in building distributed systems, where failures are common, making timeouts, retry, and alternation necessary techniques.


If any element of the script fails, all running process trees are reliably cleaned up, and the block is tried again with an exponential backoff. You might think of this as exception handling for scripts.

When I found out about fcsh, tried it out and saw how much faster it was than mxmlc, of course I wanted to immediately start using it instead in my build scripts. The biggest problem with doing this, though, is the fact that the basic operation of these two programs is fundamentally different: when you run mxmlc, it compiles the project, prints some messages to standard output and then exits

[...]. Fcsh, on the other hand, throws you into a shell of its own and expects you to essentially operate it from within itself (instead of simply calling it with some arguments and then having it return with some standard output and an exit status like mxmlc).


I tried to search for a solution to this problem that somebody else might have come up with but didn’t find an adequate one (a list of the ones that I could find is further down), so I decided to give it a shot myself.

ack is a tool like grep, aimed at programmers with large trees of heterogeneous source code.

ack is written purely in Perl, and takes advantage of the power of Perl's regular expressions.

I'm a big fan of auto-completion in the bash shell. So, I decided it was long past time to set-up auto completion goodness for my maven commands.

Colorifer is a wrapper to run program and colorize it's output. [sic]
