IMDbPY is a Python package useful to retrieve and manage the data of the IMDb movie database about movies, people, characters, and companies. It can retrieve data from both the IMDb's Web server and a local copy of the whole database. The IMDbPY package can be very easily used by programmers and developers to provide access to the IMDb's data to their programs. Some simple example scripts are included in the package.
The minfx project is a Python package for numerical optimization. It provides a large collection of standard minimization algorithms, including the line search methods (steepest descent, back-and-forth coordinate descent, quasi-Newton BFGS, Newton, and Newton-CG), the trust-region methods (Cauchy point, dogleg, CG-Steihaug, and exact trust region), the conjugate gradient methods (Fletcher-Reeves, Polak-Ribiere, Polak-Ribiere +, and Hestenes-Stiefel), the miscellaneous methods (Grid search, Simplex, and Levenberg-Marquardt), and the augmented function constraint algorithms (logarithmic barrier and method of multipliers).
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.
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.
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”.
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.
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.
