Newswall is a tool to display feeds and e-mails. Just like on a “news wall” all messages – sorted by date and time – show up in small blocks, if possible together with an image.

That way it is easy to find the most important and interesting news and then have a closer look at these. So it is sort of a feed reader mixed with an e-mail viewer having the look of an image gallery.

To install the script you need a webserver with PHP (tested with Apache2 and PHP 5.2.3), there’s no need for a database. It has been tested on Firefox 3, Safari 4, IE 8 and Chrome.

debugConsole is a tool for easily debugging and tracing PHP5 applications both on production and development servers without effecting the live-traffic.

Normally, PHP functions enable us to inspect variables, watch changes in them, set checkpoints and write logfiles.

Additionally, debugConsole replaces the PHP error handling so that notices, warnings and errors are shown in a popup too, rather than displaying them in the application to be debugged. Optionally, IP-based access restrictions can be set to make sure that the popup opens for only developers but not for visitors. The tool can be configured to debug a given timespan and checkpoints can be added in your scripts to check which lines of code were passed. Also, you can filter events and record the logs into files for future inspection.

PaintbrushJS is a lightweight, browser-based image processing library that can apply various visual filters to images within a web page.

You use it by applying a class to an element on the page and setting a few parameters with some extra HTML attributes. If the element is an img or it has a background-image set in your CSS, PaintbrushJS will create a temporary canvas element and manipulate the image there, before finally saving it back out to the original element. You can check out PaintbrushJS in action here.
