Are there any users who run bots/have developed interesting tools for math.SE?

Listing such tools in one post may be good in my opinion, and I am aware of one such user, Normal Human, and it took me 4 months to discover the toolset he developed, which are really useful.

From the top of my head:

  • Ilmari Karonen is the maintainer of SOUP that patches various glitches on SE-sites, some specific to this site. See the user page for details.

  • robjohn has developed a tool, known under the name CatChase ChatJax, so that math renders in chat. As far as I know it is widely used, and makes chat a lot more useful for some. See a meta post or the userpage for a link to the tool.

  • Normal Human, already mentioned in the question-post, provides a variety of tools that make day-to-day community-moderation tasks simpler as well as data about the site. Those are hosted on http://normalhuman.github.io/, a link to this is presently on the user page.
