Recaf - A modern Java bytecode editor

github project page

An easy to use modern Java bytecode editor based on Objectweb's ASM. No more hassling with the constant pool or stack-frames required.

Sake - A self-documenting build automation tool

github project page

Sake is a way to easily design, share, build, and visualize workflows with intricate interdependencies. Sake is self-documenting because the instructions for building a project also serve as the documentation of the project's workflow. The first time it's run, sake will build all of the components of a project in an order that automatically satisfies all dependencies. For all subsequent runs, sake will only rebuild the parts of the project that depend on changed files. This cuts down on unnecessary re-building and lets the user concentrate on their work rather than memorizing the order in which commands have to be run.

Sake is free, open source cross-platform software under a very permissive license (MIT Expat) and is written in Python. Sake is in the beta stage of development.

Pcalc - command line util for doing hex/dec/oct/bin math quickly

github project page

There was always a loophole when it came to a need to covert between hexadecimal / decimal / octal / binary.

Especially if it involved an operation like 0x1234 + 0x20. It took a lot of hard work, and mostly a good pocket calculator.
