One unfortunate limitation of the CM11 lockscreen is that you can't toggle silent mode or flashlight using slider shortcuts. (Yes, you can use the notification drawer or quick settings menu, but those are more cumbersome.)

I've been experimenting with Tasker App Factory, and I've just created two very simple apps: one to toggle the flashlight (torch) and one to toggle silent mode. You can set these apps as slider shortcuts on the lockscreen. I'm not a developer, so don't expect much, but I decided to share these in case they're useful to someone.
