in a similar vein to awesome-awesomeness.

computation environments

  • IPython Notebook (evolving into Jupyter): A browser-based notebook with support for code, rich text, mathematical expressions, inline plots and other rich media.
  • Maxima: A computer algebra system developed in Lisp for (symbolic) mathematical computations.
  • Sage Math Cloud: Provides Sage, Python, and other environments for computing on the cloud; also provides terminal access and git commands for cloning repositories.


  • Steps towards annotating and peer-reviewing the Web.

document writing

  • Authorea: Backed by Pandoc and Git for collaborative document writing.
  • ShareLaTeX: Online collaborative LaTeX editor
  • WriteLaTeX: Online collaborative LaTeX editor


data management

  • Academic Torrents: Publish large datasets as torrents.
  • Dat-Data: Dat is an open source project that provides a streaming interface between every file format and data storage backend.


project management

  • GitHub: (Naturally.)
  • Open science framework: Collect together various sources (GitHub, DropBox, etc) into one spot.
  • Trello and Libreboard (open source self-hosted alternative): Keep track of to-do items in various lists of lists; keep track of figures, comments, questions, issues, etc.


journals/preprint servers

  • ArXiv: e-Print archive
  • ECCC: The Electronic Colloquium on Computational Complexity - new papers in TCS.
  • SciRate: Front for the arXiv, with voting and comments and accounts.


community wikis

  • Complexity Zoo: Definitions of complexity classes in theoreticaly computer science.
  • Mozilla Science Lab Forum
  • nLab: A wiki-lab for collaborative work on Mathematics, Physics and Philosophy — especially from the n-point of view: insofar as these subjects are usefully treated with tools and notions of category theory or higher category theory.


operating systems

  • Debian Science: Debian

    operating system has many science related packages for different scientific blends and tastes.

  • Fedora Astronomy Spin: Fedora

    Fedora Astronomy brings a complete open source toolchain to both amateur
    and professional astronomers.
