I actively develop and maintain free software. Most of the software packages available here are for Apple's Mac OS X operating system. They are distributed as free, open-source software under the terms and conditions of the Free Software Foundation's GNU General Public License. Some of them are on my GitHub account if you feel like lending a hand.
That being said, if you find my software titles useful, please consider making a donation. I rely on your support in improving them and developing new ones.
Platypus is a developer tool that creates Mac OS X applications from scripts written in interpreted scripting languages. Such scripts can thus be run transparently through the native graphical window environment instead of running through a terminal client.
Sloth is a Mac OS X graphical application frontend for the
lsof tool. It displays a list of all open files in use by all the applications your user account is running on the system -- and, optionally, all IP and Unix sockets, character devices and directories, along with their owning applications.
Tapir is a powerful Mac OS X development tool which makes it easy to create your own global menu applications, based on shell commands or scripts. Status items such as memory monitors, workload monitors and process viewers can be created in a matter of seconds, with minimal knowledge of the command line, while more sophisticated menu applications can be constructed using a scripting language of choice.
AppHack is a developer and theming tool to alter, replace or extract the property lists or icons of Mac OS X application bundle packages.
Sentinel is a Mac OS X application which faciliates monitoring and observing command output. By allowing the process output to be monitored with periodic execution, it becomes easy to observe changes over time. In a way, Sentinel is similar to the
watch command line program, but includes additional features, such as
diff-ing output with previous output and colouring lines of output that have changed.
A GUI for the Mac OS X Speech Synthesizer which can save spoken text as audio. Features lip syncing animations, MP3 encoding and more.
osxutils is a bundle of Mac OS X-specific command line utilities for viewing, editing and manipulating HFS file metadata such as labels, comments, file/creator types, Finder flags etc.
osxutils is a collaborative project and is hosted by SourceForge.
