Projects

Update Again!: People have become incredibly stupid and overreacted to CoinHive, not understanding that it’s a path to an ad-free world. It has been blocked by both EasyList and Kaspersky due to the overreaction. So if you run either, you’ll have to disable it to download my software. I’m sorry about that, but I don’t want ads, you don’t want to pay for software, and you don’t want to pay me over Patreon, so what else could I do? It costs TONS of money to keep this place going year-after-year.
Update!: Links to my software posted here go through CoinHive to solve some hashes to get me less than a cents worth of virtual money. I appreciate that you are downloading my software, but this site has cost me over $3000 in the last few years and I need some way to offset that. I appreciate you understanding.

This is a list of projects (starting in 2009 when I got this domain. Projects prior to this have been removed.). If the project name is a link, it’s to the release post or page.

If you like the projects please consider donating through Flattr. I’m broke and still continue to release software for free because I’m a strange person. Note that it takes many people clicking the Flattr button to equal 1 whole Flattr. I don’t know why, but that’s how it is. You can read about it on the Flattr website.

Bitbucket Source Code Repositories

Maintained
The most maintained projects I have can be found on my Bitbucket Source Code Repositories link found above. XAddon is my gigantic Monkey X library and framework with over 3 years of continuous work. MiniC N.Edition is my takeover of a previous project called “MiniC” from another developer, made working and turned into a super useful scripting language for Monkey X.
