Bufferbloat Project Unknown C

Type of funding
unknown
Status
Over the years some funding has been had from donors, nlnet, shuttleworth foundation and from comcast research and google fiber. There is an active campaign for more on https://gofundme/savewifi for example.
Needs
Industry partners Open wifi firmware Build/QA engineer Dense wifi testbeds (IoT) interoperability testing ISPs/CPE maker partnerships
Function
The bufferbloat project has been developing ways to make the edge of the internet faster under load, creating new network queue algorithms like fq_codel and cake, getting them out there as "sqm-scripts", widely distributed in aftermarket (openwrt, linux), and factory default firmware (many) and participating in standardization efforts in the IETF. The next big project is to get "make-wifi-fast" off the ground. Getting these algorithms to work on several popular wifi chipsets is going to take thought, time, people, tools, testing - all of which are underesourced and underfunded. Given the scope of the worldwide bufferbloat problem ( see: http://www.dslreports.com/speedtest/results/bufferbloat/?up=1 ) and a more readily available set of fixes for it ( cable modem fix example: http://burntchrome.blogspot.com/2014/05/fixing-bufferbloat-on-comcasts-blast.html) it would be nice to be making more of a dent in this as wifi densities go up with ever more latency. We can make the edge of the internet so much better!

Chimera: A new kind of phantom for NodeJS Chimera was inspired by PhantomJS and wanted something similar, but could be run inside of the nodejs environment, without calling out to an external process. PhantomJS is run as an external process that users can run under any language, however one must create a fancy glue wrapper so that development isn't impaired. Chimera creates something that does exactly what phantomjs is capable of doing, except in a full js environment.

GWTP No Funding Java

Type of funding
unknown
Status
Service revenue isn't enough to dedicate time.
Needs
More funding to dedicate time and effort on the next generation of the framework for GWT.
Function
Programming web apps in GWT looks easy at first. However, if you just jump in and start coding, building a truly efficient and scalable app proves to be a lot harder. Your best bet is to design your application for scalability from the start, based on a proven architecture that leverages GWT's best features. GWTP (we pronounce it "goo-teepee"), is a collection of components for this kind of architecture. No matter which approach you choose, GWT-optimized compilation will make sure only the features you really use are part of your final code. At the heart of GWTP is a model-view-presenter architecture (MVP). Although this model has been lauded as one of the best approaches to GWT development, it is still hard to find an out-of-the-box MVP solution that supports all the requirements of modern web apps. GWTP aims to provide such a solution while reducing the amount of code required to reach it.

Type of funding

Status

Needs
Contributors are needed to develop, document and promote the project especially the JS version (BSD).
Function
The agile NoSQL query language for semi-structured data #Python #NoSQL #Javascript #JSON #nested-array-object ObjectPath is a query language similar to XPath or JSONPath, but much more powerful thanks to embedded arithmetic calculations, comparison mechanisms and built-in functions. This makes the language more like SQL in terms of expressiveness, but it works over JSON documents rather than relations. ObjectPath can be considered a full-featured expression language. Besides selector mechanism there is also boolean logic, type system and string concatenation available. On top of that, the language implementations (Python at the moment; Javascript is in beta!) are secure and relatively fast.

Pronghorn OSS No Funding Java/others

Type of funding
unknown
Status
This project has been developed by Nathan Tippy (when he has free time) with support from ociweb.com. We need funding so Nathan can focus on this full time and bring in additional engineering and documentation expertise.
Needs
The Pronghorn actor framework is focused on garbage free, lock free graph processing suitable for both embedded and enterprise use. The internal serialization format for the stream data was derived from open source techniques used in the financial industry. We have recently generated a comparison report showing that it is 3x more effective than ProtocolBuffers, Avro, Kryo and Thrift. https://spideroak.com/browse/share/Tippy/Pronghorn/Reports/ https://github.com/oci-pronghorn/ProtocolTestProject The entire OSS framework could use support however in the short term we need to finish the code generators and documentation necessary so this new serialization mechanism can be a drop in replacement for those using ProtocolBuffers, Avro or Thrift. The algorithms are proven to work and could be used to significantly save cloud storage and download costs or to streamline internal data processing. The work up to now has been done in Java however this serialization format also needs to be implemented in both C++ and JavaScript.

ReactiveUI No Funding dotnet/csharp/xamarin/android/ios/wpf/uwp

Type of funding
unknown
Status
not provided
Needs
Community growth is [currently] hindered by lack of quality documentation and samples. Actively working on rectifying this but time spent on growing the community and general project maintenance detracts from shipping code. The ReactiveUI maintainers are super interested in making Functional Reactive Programming the norm. ReactiveUI has our very own Slack organization which contains some of the best user interface/reactive extension developers in the industry and we are looking for seniors/rookies alike who wish to aide with FRP crossing the chasm, into mainstream adoption. Come join us in Slack < https://github.com/reactiveui/ReactiveUI/blob/rxui7-master/README.md#slack > for a ride and personal growth like no other.
Function
What’s ReactiveUI you ask? Well it is a MVVM framework that integrates with the Reactive Extensions for .NET to create elegant, testable User Interfaces that run on any mobile or desktop platform. Xamarin.iOS, Xamarin.Android, Xamarin.Mac, Xamarin Forms, WPF, Windows Forms, Windows Phone 8, Windows Store and Universal Windows Platform (UWP) are amongst our supported platforms. We deeply believe that mutable state is evil and that every bit of your application should be testable, even tricky things such as routing, time/schedulers and provide methods to make complexity that is usually hard to test, absolute child's play. You see, most modern programming today is basically imperative, meaning it models the traditional fetch-execute cycle of a CPU. Perform and instruction, fetch the next one. Perform that one, and so on. For decades, programmers have had to mould their brains to fit the paradigm of the CPU. Imperative Programming is Dangerous When we rely on hoping that the behavior that emerges from a program is correct, and that reliance is based on nothing more than a programmer's correctness, then we can easily find ourselves in a sticky situation. We can try and mitigate the costs of imperative programming with things like unit tests or integration tests, but why mitigate the costs when there's a better way? Instead of telling a computer how to do its job, why don't we just tell it what it's job is and let it figure the rest out? The bottom line is imperative programming is error-prone and relies too heavily on the infallibility of the programmer. Instead of imperative programming, we can use a new paradigm to structure our code. This paradigm is called Functional Reactive Programming- http://docs.reactiveui.net/en/fundamentals/functional-reactive-programming.html ReactiveUI was the brain child of Paul Betts (ex GitHub, now Electron wizard at Slack) and is the framework behind Github Desktop for Windows <https://desktop.github.com> amongst other things. The design principals of ReactiveUI inspired the creation of the super popular (12,000+ stars on GitHub) ReactiveCocoa framework. ReactiveUI was recently nominated as the #1 .NET package of the week by the official Microsoft .NET blog - http://blogs.msdn.com/b/dotnet/archive/2016/01/05/the-week-in-net-1-5-2015.aspx

Needs

Function
webpack is a bundler for modules. The main purpose is to bundle JavaScript files for usage in a browser, yet it is also capable of transforming, bundling, or packaging just about any resource or asset. - Bundles both CommonJs and AMD modules (even combined). - Can create a single bundle or multiple chunks that are asynchronously loaded at runtime (to reduce initial loading time). - Dependencies are resolved during compilation reducing the runtime size. - Loaders can preprocess files while compiling, e.g. coffeescript to JavaScript, handlebars strings to compiled functions, images to Base64, etc. - Highly modular plugin system to do whatever else your application requires.
