Merry Xmas  Happy New Year 2014

1. Voog/wysihtml


wysihtml is an extended and less strict approach on xing/wysihtml5 open source rich text editor based on HTML5 technology. The code is completely library agnostic: No jQuery, Prototype or similar is required.

This project is supported by Voog.

Do you suppose the world could ever have enough rich (or plain) text editors? Have a look – ‘Auto linking of urls as-you-type’.

2. Tribler/tribler

Tribler Build Status

Making Bittorrent anonymous and impossible to shutdown.

We use our own dedicated Tor-like network for anonymous torrent downloading. We implemented and enhanced the Tor protocol specifications plus merged them with Bittorrent streaming. More info: Tribler includes our own Tor-like onion routing network with hidden services based seeding and end-to-end encryption, detailed specs:

The aim of Tribler is giving anonymous access to online (streaming) videos. We are trying to make privacy, strong cryptography and authentication the Internet norm.

Tribler currently offers a Youtube-style service. For instance, Bittorrent-compatible streaming, fast search, thumbnail previews and comments. For the past 9 years we have been building a very robust Peer-to-Peer system. Today Tribler is robust: “the only way to take Tribler down is to take The Internet down” (but a single software bug could end everything).
