Welcome to ZS Freebies!

I've put up my very modest collection of free software and LaTeX templates here. Please feel free to use them!

Free and Open Source Software

  • ZipSnap is a simple command-line directory incremental backup tool. Creates compressed point-in-time snapshots, adding only new or modified files each time. Uses a file catalog so previous zip volumes are not needed for backup. Archives are automatically time-stamped.

  • RenameWand is a simple command-line file and directory renamer. Use a friendly but powerful syntax (like regex, only much easier) to rename files and directories. Perform string and arithmetic operations, enumerate files, insert timestamps, and other file and system attributes.

  • Sync is a simple command-line one-way directory synchronization tool. Synchronize a specified target to match a specified source. Only the target is modified. Works on files and directories. Features flexible file matching, simulation mode, unattended usage and more!

  • Nap is a simple command-line utility that pauses for a specified duration, and displays a countdown. Features varying levels of verbosity.

  • Slice is a simple command-line file splitter. Split a (binary) file into a given number of slices, or slices of a given size. Output files are automatically numbered, and can be concatenated ("copy", "cat") to recover the original file. Large files supported.

  • MediaSniper is a simple downloader for media files from popular websites. Just provide the webpage URL and MediaSniper will identify the media files for downloading. Supports YouTube (including playlists, favorites, profile videos, and search results), and Google Video.

  • ThisTime is a simple clock and timer program. Create any number of count up or count down timers. Features digital clock and timer displays that automatically scale to fit the program window.

  • GmailAssistant is a notifier for multiple Gmail accounts. It accesses your Gmail accounts securely using IMAP over SSL. Choose from different notification options (unread mails in Inbox only, All Mails, or with specified labels) and alert methods (popup message, chime, blink keyboard LED).

Free LaTeX Templates

  • Generic Template provides a collection of useful LaTeX snippets for general use. Adjust page margins, change typefaces, layout mathematical expressions nicely, use colors, embed graphics, source code, and do many more with greater ease!

  • Resume is a clean and elegant document template for curricula vitae and resumes. Simple macros are defined for headings at different levels, managing dates, modifying link colors, and more!
