Projects that need Doing (and Paying For)
Here are a few useful things I’ve considered working on. Of course time is always short, and I’ve already got far more non-paying, community work than I can manage If you happen to need any of these, and are willing to finance their development, drop me an e-mail and we’ll talk.
A complete XML import/export format for blogs. The goal is to produce a single XML document containing all blog entries, comments, static pages, user data, stylesheets, templates, and everything else in a straight-forward format. Possibly this should be a zip file to easily include pictures, CSS, and other non-XML data.
A complete XML import/export format for mail clients. The goal is to produce a single XML document containing all messages, mailboxes, and settings. Probably the first pass of this product would not include filters or spam rules.
A JSON parser that exposes a SAX API
A HID implementation sitting on top of the Java USB API.
javax.usb implementation for Mac OS X.
XML catalog support for XOM.
XML Digital signature support for XOM.
XML Encryption support for XOM.
An XPath based fixture for Fit/Fitnesse for TDD on Web Apps
A WordPress plug-in for adding a “Create this page” option on 404 pages.
A WordPress plug-in for customizing the button bar used in the non-rich editor.
A PHP port of TagSoup or some sort of TagSoup PHP integration by calling Java from PHP
