In the last few months:

I added a Mandelbrot zoomer in 55 lines of Lua to the Yeso repo:

Saying "I'm not going to read the code so it's okay if it's not free/open-source" is like saying "I don't vote so it's okay if not everyone is allowed to"

@mntmn This is the "main" project page, which is due for a serious overhaul. Not kept up to date.
