A set of common UI elements with a hand-drawn, sketchy look. These can be used for wireframes, mockups, or just the fun hand-drawn look.

In which I build WindEmu, an emulator for the Psion Series 5mx (a PDA from 1999 running EPOC - the OS that would become Symbian), over the course of just over a week, without access to the actual hardware. Yet another cursed project.

Inject your own scripts into black box processes. Hook any function, spy on crypto APIs or trace private application code, no source code needed. Edit, hit save, and instantly see the results. All without compilation steps or program restarts.

Prior to 2017, all W3C standards were free for anyone to implement, allowing free/open browser developers to create their own rivals to the big companies' offerings. But now, a key W3C standard requires a proprietary component to be functional, and that component is under Google's control, and the company will not authorize free/open source developers to use that component.

Control any MIDI enabled hardware: syntesizers, drum machines, samplers, effects.

Create custom interfaces.

Host them as VST or AU plugins in your favorite DAWs.

The open source community produces a large amount of software for different uses. I have already told you about open source tools for interactive fictions. Here are eleven open source tools to help authors be creative.

Axiom is an extremely flexible node-based realtime audio synthesizer. It was originally designed for size-constrained environments such as PC intros in the demoscene, but is entirely open source and is becoming an excellent free tool for any musician.


  • Musician-friendly (ie knobs and sliders) interface
  • Highly customizable and flexible through a node editor and custom scripting language, named Maxim
  • Export to replayer with no dependencies (not even the standard library)
  • Use any DAW with VSTi support for note editing and automation

WireMock is a simulator for HTTP-based APIs. Some might consider it a service virtualization tool or a mock server.

It enables you to stay productive when an API you depend on doesn't exist or isn't complete. It supports testing of edge cases and failure modes that the real API won't reliably produce. And because it's fast it can reduce your build time from hours down to minutes.

Vanna is an internal feature flagging service used at PBS. It helps deliver new features to users quickly and safely. This is an example client implementation for browser based Javascript.
