Scripts


Here are gathered scripts that I have created and improved for my own projects or for fun. Since they can be useful to many others, I decided to share them for free. You can use these scripts and tools in any type of project, as long as I am properly credited. However, and obviously, I can't be held responsible for any problems that may arise from their use.

If you find these free tools useful, and would like to show your gratitude, you can pay me a coffee:

Bugs/Comments

If you encounter any bugs running these scripts, please email me and give me a list of specific steps to reproduce the bug. I will also gladly accept any ideas for additional features/improvements, but I have limited free time and so can only promise to do my best.

I am always very happy to hear about all the creative uses you have given to these tools!
