WebKit is an open source web browser engine used, among others, by Safari and Google Chrome. I’m working on the GTK port of WebKit, this is not just an adaptation of WebKit but it heavily uses libaries part of the GNOME stack, like cairo and pango, and offers to developers a familiar GTK-style API to embed WebKit in their applications.


Telekinesis is a project with the aim of making easy to transfer files over LANs. I worked on it for my final dissertation in computer engineering and as a Google Summer of Code project.



GtkSourceView is a widget that extends the standard GTK+ 2 text widget called GtkTextWidget, by implementing syntax highlighting and other features typical of a source editor.

hg purge

hg purge is an extension for the Mercurial source control management system. This extension adds a “purge” command to “hg” that removes files not known to Mercurial, this is useful to test local and uncommitted changes in the otherwise clean source tree. The extension (with some changes by Emanuele) is now distributed with Mercurial.


WinWhois is a client for the whois directory service, it searches for an object in a RFC 3912 database. In simple words it searches for pertinent information about domain names and their registrants (technical contacts, expiration date, etc).


The program adds (or removes) a directory from the environment variable “%PATH%”, so it is possible to execute the programs in that directory from a command prompt without specifying the full path.
This program is very useful to add the path of your application during the installation, as, for instance, WinWhois does.
