“Rolling, … rolling, …  rolling on the river…”*

The Amahi Team is at it again. Rolling out 5.0 first, then it was four new apps, and now more! We know what you’re thinking… (we’re thinking it too) do those guys at Amahi ever sleep?

The short answer is occasionally! We’re busy working on Amahi 5.1 and bringing you all of these new applications for your enjoyment. We start with the very popular SqueezeCenter! Enjoy the Holidays and read on ….

phpMan is a unix Man page / Perldoc / Info page Web Interface runs on PHP 4.2 above. One file script makes it easier to read man pages which is lengthy and require you to use ‘more’ or ‘pg’ filters. This app allows you to search any command to get info on said command or get the manual for it (ie man). Just try it if you feel hard to remember the command for page back or need to dump man page into text/html format.


Adminer (formerly phpMinAdmin) is a full-featured MySQL management tool written in PHP. Conversely to phpMyAdmin, it consist of a single file ready to deploy to the target server.
Features for Adminer include:

  • Connect to a database server with username and password

You can think of Clipperz as your web Rolodex, a card index where you can enter any sort of confidential data without worrying about security. It can be used to store and freely organize passwords, confidential notes, burglar alarm codes, credit and debit card details, PINs, software keys, etc.
Clipperz does solve the “password fatigue” and make the Internet the most convenient and safe place to store private and sensitive data. However since passwords are the most common type of sensitive information that you need to protect, we added a lot of functionalities to make Clipperz the best online password manager.


  • One-click login – Users can store the details of their online services into Clipperz and quickly create a “direct login” link for each of them: just one click to authenticate and access the online service without typing any username and password.
  • Offline copy – Users can dump their encrypted data from Clipperz servers to a local hard disk or USB drive and create a read-only portable version of Clipperz to be used when no Internet connection is available. Clipperz offline copy can also be easily moved to a USB drive.
  • Clipperz Compact – A stripped down edition designed for the Firefox sidebar. It makes “direct logins” even more addictive! And it works with Opera panels too.


PHP Yahtzee is a web based single player Yahtzee game.

The object of the game is to score the most points by rolling five dice to make certain combinations. The dice can be rolled up to three times in a turn to try to make one of the thirteen possible scoring combinations.

Enjoy the holidays!

The Amahi Team

* We here at Amahi like all sorts of eclectic things and Creedance Clearwater Revival and Tina Turner comes to mind for this latest release.  CCR, (and then later Tina Turner in her smash hit in 1971) belted the amazing lyrics of “And we’re rolling, rolling on the river …” 🙂
