Puppy projects: Bright Ideas

I already announced the "Puppy Projects" web page yesterday:

I received feedback with great ideas for some very ambitious projects, plus I thought of some myself, so I have added a "Bright Ideas" section to the web page, just scroll down:

So, in the future if anyone asks on the Forum how they can get involved on the developer side of things, point them to this page!

Psip is a great project that languished for awhile, now lobster has revived it:


The main thing about Psip in comparison to other similar projects, is that it is very small. That was the main reason that it was great for inclusion in Puppy.

I don't have it in recent Wary builds though, as it seemed to not be used by anyone.
But perhaps it is a situation where it really needs to be in all Puppy builds, so that it is something that all Puppy users can use right-off, and that will promote it's adoption (and general awareness of its existence).

Presentation tool
This requires a web browser, but since all puppies include a relatively standard modern browsers, I'd though I'd include this http://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/s5/
