Welcome to the fourth edition of the GitHub Reflog, a weekly chronicle of great GitHub repositories and community activity. Previous editions are available from the Reflog archive .

Recommended repositories this week:

apenwarr / sshuttle

This excellent project received quite a few press references this week, and has already become an integral part of my toolkit. Sshuttle calls itself the “Poor VPN”. It allows you to connect to a remote computer as an unprivileged user and forward every port on that network to your local computer. After switching on, all traffic is redirected through the server. If the server has network access for machines that your machine does not have access to, then now you can access them as if they were on your local network.

Port forwarding with OpenSSH is not new, but sshuttle transfers all the ports, not just the ones you specify. On the server, it depends on OpenSSH.


Amazing repositories this week

asarazan / Narwhalingus-EP

@Asarazan found a great new GitHub application this week. He and his band, Bristol 7's, decided to publish their EP under a Creative Commons license. In the spirit of open source, it was decided to publish it on GitHub!

The repo includes final mixes, as well as separate audio tracks for remixes. Pool requests are welcome!

Features: class system, customizable selector engine, DOM manipulation, event system, asynchronous dependency loading, simple animations, and a robust extension API.
