Here's a list of what I have, with my own descriptions (sometimes copied from elsewhere). The URLs are not always the latest. Specially true for LoveFrames and all of adonaac's.
If a library is not there, it just means I didn't clone it for some reason. The descriptions are my own notes.
Here are the ones I was too late to update because they are already gone, but I keep the old versions:
