Sporadic Ops Github Digest #5 (July 10th 2014)

"Did you missed me?" :)
Was quite busy. So, let's continue our fascinating journey to amazing world of interesting and/or useful (to the Ops engineers) Github projects!

1. A shell console with GUI features http://xiki.org
Did you see that awesomeness? If not - go to http://xiki.org and give it a try. It's definitely some fresh air for old and stale world of 70's unix shells.

Did you start own "awesome" list of something? Not yet?
Now we have bunch of them - Scala, Go, but my favorite is :
2. Awesome awesomeness - A curated list of awesome awesomeness.

3. A Python library for automating interaction with websites.
Same thing as Perl's WWW-Mechanize and Ruby's Mechanize - but compatible with python 2.x and 3.x and using Requests and BeautifulSoup as engine.

4. Snabb Switch: Fast open source packet processing
Very interesting project of open-source Lua-powered bare metal ethernet switch/router/firewall. Check that article for start - Snabb Switch - Skip The OS And Get 40 Million Requests Per Second In Lua

5. The next-generation email platform https://www.inboxapp.com/
Also very interesting project  - Mail retrieval engine + API - you can collect email from various sources and retrieve it in your app/service - python-based and ready to run on your laptop or server.

6. 500 Lines or Less

Not very interesting for now, but put it to your bookmarks or watch it on Github. New "The Architecture of Open Source Applications"-like book will be there soon.

7. Easily use tmux to collaborate with distant friends!
Small tool for pair programming over sharing your terminal with tmux.
