I've released the Responsive package on

Unfortunately, they are only available in Czech, but I hope they can still be useful to someone.
I have a habit to start lot of projects in my hyper-focus seasons.
Unfortunately, I often left then unfinished, or mostly finished, but
without documentation. Here is a list of these, that are most interesting for me.
Luaepubreader – Epub reader for LuaLaTeX. It should enable for direct typesetting of Epub files. It is in an early stage of development, it can read list of files in the Epub files, but nothing more. It depends on the finishing of the HTML parser.
Luaspreadsheet – Lua module for reading of spreadsheet files. Currently, it supports only reading of XSLT files.
Lualiterate – support for API comments in LaTeX packages. In a proof-of-concept state.
TeXparser – Lua parser for LaTeX. Idea was to strip LaTeX commands, create a text file useful for grammar checking or other tools that don't support LaTeX syntax, and then apply changes in that text file back to LaTeX sources.
