Cling Cling is a Micro Framework for Command Line Applications.

I Started working on Cling because i frequently find myself writing small CLI apps in PHP, and keep redoing code that should really be in a “Framework”.

Inspired a little by the Slim Framework.

Development and Releases are on Github


  • Routing of Command Line Arguments
  • Short and Long Arguments
  • Automagic --help creation
  • Configuration


  • PHP 5.3

“Hello World” Application

require 'Cling/Cling.php';

$app = new Cling();
$app->command('hello-world:', function($name) {
    echo "Hello $name\n";
})->help("Hello World Example Command.");



Bliss A web-based RSS/ATOM aggregator

Because reading my private, mostly NSFW RSS Feeds makes me a happy puppy.

fka rssReader. see link for my first release.

Development and Releases are on Github

Check out the Demo Installation.


Bliss is a simple application which can be used to gather a set of RSS/RDF feeds, and compile them into one single Page ordered by Date.

I build it because i liked PlanetGnome alot, but didn’t like the Python Spycyroll.

Recently it got a slight update (as in complete rewrite) to something a bit more up-to-date.


  • I have feeds that i don’t want Google Reader to know about. (The NSFW, and authenticated kind)
  • tt-rss needs MySQL, i’d like to get rid of that dependency for my VPS
  • I don’t want a Desktop Reader.
  • And, as always: Because i can, that’s why!



  • Untar the archive into your webservers directory.
  • Open the config.ini in you favorite editor and follow the instructions in that file.
  • You need to set data_dir and cache_dir and, of course, your sources.
  • Then run php index.php --update from the commandline
  • After you’ve run the update you can open the page in your browser.


There is 3 ways to do add feeds to Bliss:

  • Add them to config.ini
  • Create an OPML File, and add that to config.ini
  • Add them via the Options Menu pulldown

Bliss uses SimplePie for feed retrieval. SimplePie has Feed autodetection, so you shouldn’t have to worry about adding the RSS Feed as URL. Usually just adding a Page that has a Feed is sufficient.

Topical Topical is a Simple PHP Application to Plan your day-to-day activity. It is not a long term Todo List Management Application, never will be.

This was primarily a Project to get acquainted with jQuery and how to build a web application that only uses Ajax requests to update the Content.

The app tries to handle Time Management as outlined in the Time Management for System Administrators Book.

Development and Releases are on Github

Quick Install

% git clone

% git submodule update


  • PHP >= 5.3
  • PHP PDO SQLite
  • PHP Posix Extensions
  • PHP Socket Functions (For the Embedded Server)

Running the Embedded Server

The easiest way to have a quick look at the Application is to use the included Webserver:

% php app.php

Then connect to http://localhost:3001/ and you should be good to go. (Do NOT put this thing on the Internet)

Installation on a Webserver

Simply put the Application Directory in a Directory on your webserver, and point your browser to it.


There are a few Options you can tweak in the config.ini.

A good idea is to move the planner.db Database File outside the document root.

Keyboard Navigation

  • a, n: Add Task
  • left, right: Navigate through Time
  • Pos1: Go back to Today

WebTail - A Tail for Files located on a Webserver

This tool allows you tail a or multiple file(s) located on a Webserver. It Uses HTTP HEAD and Partial requests to save bandwidth.

Your webserver will have to support HEAD and Partial Requests properly, modern Webservers are usually not a problem.

Usage: webtail.php [OPTION]... [FILE]...

Valid options are:
                -i            interval for updates
                --version               output version information and exit
                -q, --quiet, --silent   never output headers giving file names
                -c                   output the last N bytes

Example Output:

# php -q webtail.php -c 500 -i 1 http://eurybe.local/logfiles/access.log http://eurybe.local/logfiles/error.log

La(te)st Release (v0.9.2)

One of my first, and only Perl Projects, way back from 20012002. Found it in one of my Backup locations, and committed all versions i still had to my Subversion repository.

Desscription from one of the Pages that still references to it:

The is a Perl based script that allows you to create an index of image files in a directory and to display them on a HTML page. The script scans the directory for images and creates thumbnails automatically. In addition, there is an option to specify the number of images that you would like to display on a page and also you can resize the height and width of the images.

Usage: V0.9.2 - Generate Image Gallerys from current, or
specified directory.

© Claus Beerta


Where Options is one of: -h, –help Show this helptext -r, –recursive Generate gallerys recursivly -q, –quiet Disable output -i, –image FILE Image to use for directorys -m, –maximage NUM Maximum number of images on one page


- Added img tags option, slows down overall processing, but speeds up browsing (-s)
- Quiet Mode, good for crons
- 2001-05-14 Minor bugfixes, help updated
- 2001-06-09 Added a option to specify a directory image (-i)
- 2001-08-21 Added the verbose option, ok its stupid, since it somehow conflicts
             with the quiet option, but who cares …
             Also fixed some minor stuff (comparing numbers with stringcompares .. stupid me)
- 2001-08-22 Cleanups, and fixed yet another bug™
- 2001-09-06 Added an option that allows you to specify how many images are shown on one
             page, as suggested from Eric
- 2002-08-19 Removed the quiet mode, and added scaling of images to different sizes
- 2002-08-20 Also removed the setsize option

I haven’t used it in a long time, so no idea if it still works. Released under the GPL License, so feel free have a go at the code :-) (And don’t blame me if it eats your files)
