reimplementation (plural reimplementations)
The act of implementing again.

Hi guys! The idea here is bringing a new life to FUNCTIONALITY present in abandoned (or plain old) software.

This isn't about cloning a program carbon-copy, but reimplementing its functionality afresh!

Furthermore, it can be extended beyond what the original program allowed, accounting for modern times. A much-welcome refreshment for many users!

Programmers abandon functional programs all the time. Let's give those programs' functionality a second chance here at DC :)

Some benefits:

  • Creative Commons Zero v1.0 Universal: It is reimplemented using a truly-permissive open-source license with the source code and rights gifted to the public domain entirely (regained software freedom) hence continuity is reassured due to the new licensing.
  • Extending functionality: If you ever wanted a program to make something new yet it was abandoned, then this one's truly for you :)

Feel free to submit!

I'm always willing to help a fellow!

Well, URLister is needed, and will be greatly appreciated.


-- Allow copy/paste to get list of URLs entered.
-- Allow drag-into-window to get list of URLs entered.
-- Allow drag-to-program-icon (on desktop), and SendTo, to get list of URLs entered.
-- Allow option to open each URL into separate tabs, OR into just the first tab, overwriting what was there.
-- Allow program window option to STAY ON TOP of other windows (i.e, browsers)

That would be a good start.

Thanks for keeping this alive!

PublicDomainVic / 2021 Worthy Projects

Alternative input methods for keyboard and mouse input via camera.

The goal being to use computer vision as a virtual keyboard and mouse to help both limited-mobility fellows AND people wanting to avoid repetitive stress/strain.

Commodity hardware is capable these days! Just regular webcams/equipment used.

Aim is having it be the main input method for daily/normal usage. This opens the doors to potential users who may have required special hardware.

Any limb that can move (even a small range) can control the cursor and type.

We being with a very limited range imposed: a person having only two working fingers or both toes. Either having cameras pointing at their feet or to the single working finger per hand.

We build from there.




An Unikernel-based web engine.

The goal being getting web hosting costs as close to zero as possible.

The unikernel technology is the natural next step from containers.

I envision unikernels as the ultimate shared hosting model.

Each user can have full independence and full security (since they have no login/shell and reduced attack surface). Mixing them with Hypervisors frees users from any underlying operating system requirements/lock-ins.

Unikernels are truly set-and-forget until next hard-coded update: maintenance bliss!

This removes the need for managed hosting. Yearly savings can go to families’ budgets (think inclusion).

Hello guys, this thread is here to announce new topics @ our page.

Some may be more relevant than others, yet they're all related to our software/service/product hence the matching section :Thmbsup:

Feel free to make questions about them!

Like mouser noted (here), I am "a real person making a real unique post telling our members about a project you are involved with." :)


Hi there! Some ideas for implementing a multi-platform programming language:

User-friendly (think AutoHotKey-like).

Emits source code in the native language of the target platform for "expected format" compilation i.e. exe on windows, apk on android, etc.

It may re-use building blocks from a solution such as Haxe or a brand-new transpiler can also be done from scratch via ANTLR + StringTemplate.

The idea being to use a native technology for the target platform at all times; using their flagship language(s) preferably:

- C#/VB.NET = Windows.
- Java/Kotlin = Android.
- C++/Vala = Linux, GTK.
- Swift = Apple-based operating systems.
- Node.js/Javascript/WebAssembly = server-side, web apps.

...You get the gist.

The core of the functions would be written using platform-neutral instructions while the GUI part would be specific to each target platform.

Think "Environment.NewLine" (automated "\n" or "\r\n") or Path.DirectorySeparatorChar (for dealing with "\" or "/") and so on.

With handy platform-neutral ways + specific GUI functionality you can have the best of both worlds across as many platforms as the industry evolves to use.

Actually, some times I wonder how much interest/support would such future-proof-oriented transpilers gather for ensuring code longevity across platforms.

Some programs are basically the same as they were decades ago! (Think in terms of the same buttons, windows, dialogs, text labels, et cetera).

These programs are basically forced to being re-coded to keep on with the current/new operating systems' way, even if there is not a single improvement in functionality(!).

i.e. I recall doing some VB6 => VB.NET conversion for an Aussie fellow maintaining the exact same functionality. Just because of a 32-bit to 64-bit requirement.

We could simply update the transpiler to support emitting new code for the "popular platform of the day", keeping the original programs fresh-looking and current for longer periods than bound to a particular single technology/framework/compiler/operating system's ways :)

EDIT: not to mention reaching more target platforms with the same code given many platforms share the same foundations, which can be a big plus on itself.

(for instance: same code-base for Windows, Linux, Mac and single-page web app)

Announce Your Software/Service/Product / [Service] SPONSOR A SNACK!
« on: December 17, 2019, 12:59 PM »
Hello guys!

If you would like me to focus on any given coding snack of your choice with priority this one is for you :Thmbsup:

The rules of the service are rather simple:

  • If you are a steady DonationCoder member (one year or more), you can simply reply below for us to engage.
  • If you are under a year old in the forum, we can engage and agree on an estimated delivery date, yet you must send the agreed PayPal first for me to do the coding.
  • You can sponsor ANY coding snack past & present, requested by another fellow forum member or by yourself.

That's it.

All transactions are made in the open for full transparency.

All resulting programs are open-source (CC0 Licensed) Public Domain dedication.

Depending on the difficulty of the snack, we will mutually agree to any of: $15 - $20 - $25.

You can always open a new thread if you have a coding snack in mind you'd like programmed using this service.

Again, both new and existing threads are welcome for us to to engage.

Coding Snacks index: Post New Requests Here

Thank you!

N.A.N.Y. 2020 / N.A.N.Y. 2020: How can I be of service to you?
« on: November 07, 2019, 08:46 AM »
Hello there!

As I've been invited to join N.A.N.Y. 2020 by mouser (thank you!) I would like to use this opportunity to ask if you guys have a program bigger than a "snack" you would like me to code?

My aim is being of most service to the community so if you have an idea for a medium-sized program you'd like to have implemented, feel free to shoot it below :)

Windows/Linux is OK.


Developer's Corner / Official icons?
« on: September 14, 2019, 01:56 AM »
Hello DC family,

Is there an official DonationCoder icon for use in our programs when linking to the site in the Help/About menu?

Can we simply include the site's Favicon? ( )

Cody perhaps?

Many thanks for the info!
