Harvest is a compact, fast and portable software that can scan files and folders to recognise their typology. Scanning is based on file extensions and a simple fuzzy logic analysis of folder contents to recognise if they are related to video, audio or text materials. Harvest makes it easy to list folders by type or year, to move them or to categorize them for tagged filesystems. It can process approximately 1GB of stored files per second and is operated from the console terminal. Harvest is de

Shuriken is a tool to facilitate the tedious task of copying config files and ssh keys across servers; to do so it follows a very minimalist approach, leveraging the power of script generation directly in the clipboard and ready to paste in a terminal, rather than dealing with file transfers and file permissions. When a file is imported from stdin, Shuriken detects what it is and imports it into its repository (usually in `~/.shuriken`) where all public keys and configurations are stored. When
