Pythonect is an experimental general-purpose dataflow programming language based on Python. It provides both a visual programming language and a text-based scripting language. The text-based scripting language aims to combine the quick and intuitive feel of shell scripting with the power of Python. The visual programming language is based on the idea of a diagram with “boxes and arrows”.
Pyrseas provides a framework and utilities to upgrade and maintain a relational database. It currently includes the dbtoyaml utility to create a YAML description of a PostgreSQL database's tables, and the yamltodb utility to generate SQL statements to modify a database to match an input YAML specification. It also aims to develop data administration tools to supplement an agile database development process.
Attic is a deduplicating backup program. The main goal of attic is to provide an efficient and secure way to back up data. The data deduplication technique used makes Attic suitable for daily backups since only actual changes are stored. Main features: space efficient storage, optional data encryption, and off-site backups.
ClusterShell is a set of tools and an event-based Python library to execute commands on local or remote cluster nodes in parallel. The framework also provides advanced methods for handling node sets and node groups to ease and improve administration of large compute clusters or server farms. Three convenient command line utilities, clush, clubak, and nodeset, allow traditional shell scripts to benefit some useful features offered by the library.
Bmrblib is a Python API abstracting the Biological Magnetic Resonance Data Bank (BioMagResBank or BMRB) NMR-STAR format. It allows the writing of NMR-STAR files for BMRB data deposition and the reading and easy extraction of data from files residing in the BMRB data bank, all without knowledge of the Self-Defining Text Archive and Retrieval (STAR) format.
PyroScope is a collection of tools for the BitTorrent protocol and especially the rTorrent client. "pyrocore" is the component providing command line tools for automation of common tasks, like metafile creation, and controlling rTorrent via its XML-RPC interface. It also offers a documented API, with which these tools are implemented.
pyrobase assembles general Python helper functions and classes that can be applied to any project. This includes some additional tasks for the Paver build tool, an improved xmlrpc2scgi module, unit test helpers, and generic base modules for various domains. All modules have unit tests, and the goal is to reach >80% coverage.
