I’m currently working on several projects, which anyone with the time and interest can feel free to join me in, listed below:
- Geocoding: I’m working on geocoding Wikipedia articles about Namibian places, see my User Page on Wikipedia for more details
- Messaging Menu: I’ve taken over maintenance of Messaging Menu, a Gnome Shell extension providing quick access to mail, chat and blogging programs. You can install it from here.
- Guess the Animal: To practise Java and Android programming I’ve written a simple app that learns how to guess animals from people. The source is on GitHub.
- Epic Chat: A fairly lame TCP chat server in Node.js. Although the functionality isn’t mind blowing, I use this project to get familiar with trendy new technologies like Node.js, npm, Heroku, Codeship, and so on. The source code is on GitHub
- Binary Clock: To get into Harware Hacking I’ve started implementing a binary clock with an Arduino. Hopefully it’ll be above average. The code so far is on GitHub.
- FHV Multi-Sync: When Google Code shut down I saved our project, an Eclipse RCP program to synchronise files, developed with my classmates at Fachhochschule Vorarlberg. The source is now available on GitHub.
- Tomboy Plugins: I have packaged, and still maintain, several plugins for the Gnome note-taking program Tomboy, on Archlinux. The package build scripts are available as GitHub gists, bundled together in this repository. You can install them all-at-once from the Archlinux User Repository.
Wherever relevant, my work has source code, issue trackers and wikis on GitHub!
WORS Optimised Reports System
Formerly WRS, this program created school reports in PDF form for the Windhoek International School. I’m in the process of re-writing it as WORS, the WORS Optimised Reports System, an Eclipse RCP application written in Java and licensed under the Eclipse Public License. The source code, project wiki and issue tracker are now all on GitHub.
