- Guikachu: Graphical resource editor for the GNU PalmOS SDK
- Alef: A lazy functional programming language (interpreter and compiler)
- MetaFun: Compile a Haskell-like functional language into C++ template metaprograms

- Collection of Elisp snippets.
- Goblin: A Python implementation of the board game Gobblet, for Windows and Unix/Linux systems.
