The thing that gets me about things like TLA+ is that once you’re written the spec, you effectively have the program, so why not just run the spec?

Goblet is a fast, easy to customize web frontend for git repositories. It was created because existing alternatives are either not very easy to customize (gitweb), require C programming to do so (cgit), or are tied into other products, such as bugtrackers (redmine, github).
I’m considering switching to this and using git-over-SSH with gitosis as an alternative to RhodeCode, because I’ve just had way too many issues with RhodeCode in the past at work, and git-over-HTTP is just too brittle with it.
It’s marked alpha now, but given it’s only a repo viewer, if it breaks, that’s not a big deal, and it’s straightforward enough that it should pose no issues to fix if it does.
The idea here is that rather than storing your node inventory in a single file, you can dynamically pull it in from a database of some kind. I can see it being useful for helping track apps and deployment locations.
