The following are open source projects that I have posted on github. Most are either directly related to my published research papers or small tools I've developed to help with my own workflow.

I've sorted them below first by category and then by programming language.

By Category

Scientific tools

regression_table_generator

[ git ] A set of R fucntions that automates one of the most labourious parts of the academic publishing process: painstakingly copy-pasting your analytic results into publication quality regression tables. You mearly provide a list of fitted regression model objects and R will automatically generate the latex code for producing perfectly laid out regression tables, ready for publicaiton. It will even compile the images for you if you have latex installed. (Language: r; Platform: Portable)

word_proximity_counter

[ git ] A tool for counting how often two words appear within a specified proximity of each other in texts. Used for research on historical corpuses. (Language: python; Platform: Portable)

online_textual_coding

[ git ] A web based tool for multiple “coders” to log in a make binary decisions about passage of text. (Language: php; Platform: Web)

handy_r_functions

[ git ] A collection of the handy R functions. (Language: r; Platform: Portable)

These are functions for data analysis, visualisation and export (especially to latex), that I've written and refined over my career as a scientist.

Simulations

noisy_world_reciprocity

[ git ] Optimised simulation of reciprocity dynamics when information is poor (Language: c; Platform: Linux)

coalescent_migration_sim

[ git ] Optimised simulation of relatedness in a population with non-trivial migration (Language: c; Platform: Linux)

beta_ghosts_sim

[ git ] Optimised simulation of the evolutionary dynamics of genetic relatedness given regular population fission (Language: c; Platform: Linux)

Pedagogical tools

classroom_strategic_games

[ git ] A teaching aid which lets students interactively play economic games (e.g., dictator / trust / ultimatum) from their web-connected devices in the class room. Takes care of random pairing, point tracking, etc. (Language: javascript; Platform: Web)

probability_teaching_tools

[ git ] A teaching aid which demonstrates the central limit theorum by letting students nominate distributions to sample from, and visualising the distribution of their sum. (Language: r; Platform: Portable)

Productivity tools

csv_templater

[ git ] A CSV-templating system. (Language: perl; Platform: Linux)

A script that maps data from spreadsheets into arbitrary templates. For instance, I use it to automatically generate this web page.

website_checker

[ git ] A script to email you when a website changes. (Language: bash; Platform: Linux)

Simple bash script for sending yourself an email when a website changes (schedule with cron, etc).

online_todo_list

[ git ] A simple, dynamic todo list web page (Language: php; Platform: Web)

metric_imperial_chart

[ git ] A chart with metric↔imperial conversions, which prints with to-scale visual aids (Language: LaTeX; Platform: Portable)

A one page chart with mertric↔imperial conversions which, if printed on letter paper, includes to-scale relative distance visualisations.

windows_timelogger

[ git ] ery simple: you run it, it shows you a text box, you type something and it drops it in a text file with a time stamp. Assign it a hot key, hit that key, type what you're doing - presto, you have a complete log of your activities. (Language: c#; Platform: Windows)

scantron_multi_answer

[ git ] A tool that allows grading of non-standard “scantron” exam data where a single question can have multiple answers correct answers. (Language: c#; Platform: Windows)

You provide the “scantron” data output and an answer key, and the grades per-student are automatically generated. Here I assume that if a question has n correct answers, each correct answer marked gives 1/n points and each incorrect answer marked gives -1/n, with 0 being the minimum score for a given question.

Games and toys

geo_adventure

[ git ] An Android based platform for making games where clues are 'unlocked' when a user gets within a close enough proximity of a GPS coordinate. Great for scavenger hunts and interactive stories. (Language: java; Platform: Android)

geo_adventure_maker

[ git ] An online system for making 'GeoAdventures' my laying points down on a google map, adding story text to them and connecting them with basic logic AND/OR/XOR/NOT logic. (Language: javascript; Platform: Web)

handwritting_simulator

[ git ] A web page which 'hand writes' in cursive script whatever you type on the screen. (Language: javascript; Platform: Web)

DMLITE_remapper

[ git ] A midi module that fixes he buggy DMLITE drum module high-hat midi signal. (Language: c; Platform: Linux)
