View Full Version : Open-Source Projects for Scripting

December 8th, 2012, 12:31 AM
I <love> scripting. I try to use scripting languages whenever it applies, and sometimes even if they aren't the best solution.

I know Ruby (the best), then Python (some less) and am learning Lua currently.

I am looking forward to any kind of open-source projects, where I can write scripts.

It can be any scripting language, although I would prefer Ruby, Python or Lua.

Any projects you are aware of? Please let me know.

Not that I know of but just go and make some scripts play around that's how Linux began I think so have fun and you could build a chromium OS they uses some python I think

I am too bored playing around. Have done the exact thing for the past 10 years or so. I want to become more active, and the best way is by joining a project I think. It would also help me gaining experience and gaining new skills.

Search your system for scripts in the languages of your choice. Then, if you can improve on the script, work with the relevant project on it. You can use dpkg -S (http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/precise/en/man1/dpkg.1.html) to find out which package a script belongs to, if it is not already obvious.
