curn is a command-line RSS reader, designed to be used from Unix cron or the Windows Scheduler. It processes a configured set of RSS feeds and writes output to one or more files (in user-specifiable formats, such as HTML or plain text). It can also optionally email its output. curn is highly customizable, supporting a plug-in architecture, the ability to write custom output handlers (in Java or a scripting language), a FreeMarker-driven built-in output handler (permitting the creation of a custom output format by simply defining a FreeMarker template), and other features.

Apatar Open Source Data Integration helps users integrate information between databases, files and applications. Apatar takes custom coding and effort to study APIs out of integration projects for developers and business users. Imagine you could visually (drag and drop) design a workflow to exchange data and files between your on-premise and on-demand databases (MySQL, MS SQL, Oracle), applications (Salesforce.com, SugarCRM) and the top Web 2.0 destinations (Flickr, Amazon S3, RSS feeds). Users install a visual job designer application to create integration jobs called DataMaps, link data between the source(s) and the target(s), and schedule one-time or recurring data transformations. Now you have all the tools necessary to migrate, synchronize, and replicate files and data between your on-premise and on-demand systems and applications, all without having to write a single line of code. 100% of the source code is released under GPL v. 2.0.
