Apache CloudStack

CloudStack is open source soxyceftware written in java that is designed to deploy and manage large networks of virtual machines, as a highly available, scalable cloud computing platform. It is sponsored by Citrix and donated to the Apache Software Foundation.

EtherPad

Imprudence

Imprudence Viewer is a SecondLife / OpenSim compatible viewer with a focus on usability, privacy and reputability.

Ingres

a opensource enterprise-level database management system, providing support for variety of programming languages and environments.

Various i2p software

There is no i2p software such as i2pmessenger, etc.

See bug 186555

Who is working

Intel C++ Compiler

Intel® compiler suites offer industry-leading C++ and Fortran compilers with optimization features and multithreading capabilities, highly optimized performance libraries, and error-checking, security, and profiling tools.

11.1.075 exists in pkgsrc using Linux binary emulation, older versions where ported to FreeBSD and a porter should have a look how it was done there, netchild@ is available for questions regarding the old versions

ispconfig

An open source web-based hosting control panel capable of managing multiple servers from one control panel

Bunch of PHP scripts, should be quick to port if time permits

ISP Control Panel

An open source project founded to build a Multi Server Control and Administration Panel

experimental port and installation steps are available

JDownloader

JDownloader is a download manager, written in Java, which allows the automatic download of files and split files from one-click hosting sites such as Rapidshare and Megaupload.

JPCSP

The first PlayStation Portable emulator that is written in JAVA. Most people think java is too slow. But Shadow and his team has proven us wrong.

LightTable

Light Table is a next generation code editor that connects you to your creation with instant feedback. Light Table is very customizable and can display anything a Chromium browser can.

Build instructions

LogZilla

LogZilla is a universal log collector.

See the FreeBSD.org Forum Thread

me-tv

Me TV is a GTK desktop application for watching digital television services that use the DVB standard.

Mailwatch

A web-based front-end to MailScanner. MailWatch comes with a simple and intuitive Web Interface. Written in PHP and powered by MySQL, browsing incoming and outgoing email is just a click away; color-coded display of recently processed mail make it even easier.

makemkv

MakeMKV is a format converter, otherwise called "transcoder". It converts the video clips from proprietary (and usually encrypted) disc into a set of MKV files, preserving most information but not changing it in any way.

source code FreeBSD port (work in progress)

osa@

mod_usdt

A DTrace provider for Apache httpd.

Netdata

netdata is a highly optimized Linux daemon providing real-time performance monitoring for Linux systems, Applications, SNMP devices, over the web! GPLv3, Live Demo

Mounting linprocfs to /proc partially helps to display some of the values

NetHogs

NetHogs is a small 'net top' tool. Instead of breaking the traffic down per protocol or per subnet, like most tools do, it groups bandwidth by process. NetHogs does not rely on a special kernel module to be loaded. If there's suddenly a lot of network traffic, you can fire up NetHogs and immediately see which PID is causing this. This makes it easy to identify programs that have gone wild and are suddenly taking up your bandwidth.

Depends heavily on the linux procfs.

NetworkMiner

Network Forensic Analysis Tool.

Nevernote / Nixnote

An open source clone of Evernote which is a popular note-taking and web-clipping application.

OpenStack

An IaaS cloud computing project by Rackspace Cloud and NASA, written in Python, and available under an Apache License. It is also the core for Ubuntu cloud foundation technology.

OPM - Open PostgreSQL Monitoring

Open PostgreSQL Monitoring is a free software suite designed to help you manage your PostgreSQL servers. It's a flexible tool that will follow the activity of each instance. It can gather stats, display dashboards and send warnings when something goes wrong.

Application

PRootCARE

PRoot is a user-space implementation of chroot, mount --bind, and binfmt_misc. CARE monitors the execution of the specified command to create an archive that contains all the material required to re-execute it in the same context.

Too Linux-centric, mostly impossible to port, but it would be great to have such an application!

REBOL

A new computer language released under an Apache License.

R Studio

An integrated development environment (IDE) for R.

Work in progress (stalled): http://people.freebsd.org/~zi/rstudio.shar

Second Life client

is a 3D online digital world imagined, created and owned by its residents. They provide the source code for their second life client under the GPL2.

There exist instructions and basic FreeBSD port already, but the port needs some serious attention, and the dependencies are obsolete.

SOFA

SOFA is a user-friendly statistics, analysis, & reporting program. It is free, with an emphasis on ease of use, learn as you go, and beautiful output.
