Panel-colorer - Innovative UI plugin for FAR manager and ConEmu console emulator

  •        0

Panel Colorer is an innovative and highly experimental plugin for FAR manager and ConEmu console emulator (i.e. it requires both). Though FAR is a console application, ConEmu adds GUI flavor to it and allows some behavior a console application alone can't implement. Panel Colorer uses ConEmu to dynamically change the background of FAR application based on current FAR panels/windows state. This is how it looks like: FeaturesPanels are colored based on volume drive type (fixed, removable, etc.), and each type has a set of slightly different colors to distinguish one drive from another. Each panel features drive description, its size and free/total usage meter at the bottom of the panel. Volumes mounted as folders (NTFS junctions) are recognized. Plugin panels have their own color, too; Panel Colorer recognizes most popular FAR plugins and provides special text and images for them. Rules for special directories like "C:\\Windows\\Temp" or ".svn". RequirementsFAR 2.0 (build 1661+) x86. ConEmu 100906+ (either x86 or x64 version). InstallationInstall FAR. Install ConEmu into the same folder where FAR is located. Unpack plugin to FAR 'plugins' folder. Start ConEmu (which will load FAR, and plugin will be enabled by default). In ConEmu options, make sure 'Enable plugins' option is turned on. In ConEmu options, adjust background opacity to your liking (recommended is the middle value of 127). TODOConfigurability (work in progress).

TagSoup - SAX-compliant parser in Java

TagSoup, a SAX-compliant parser written in Java that, instead of parsing well-formed or valid XML, parses HTML as it is found in the wild: poor, nasty and brutish, though quite often far from short. TagSoup is designed for people who have to process this stuff using some semblance of a rational application design. TagSoup also includes a command-line processor that reads HTML files and can generate either clean HTML or well-formed XML that is a close approximation to XHTML.
