AntFlow builds upon Apache Ant to provide a new approach to simplifying system automation that uses pipelines of hot folders chained together to perform a given task. Using XML, it associates an automated task such as data transfer, encryption, or XML processing with a directory on the local system. Whenever a file is copied or written into the hot folder, the associated task is executed and the file is moved to the next hot folder in the pipeline for further processing.
Archive is a fully drag-and-drop multi-format archiver. Drag a directory onto it to create an archive. Drag an archive onto it to extract to a directory. It can also compress and decompress streams (for example, you could drag a .gz file onto Archive and from Archive into your text editor).
Arnie is a simple system for making incremental backups to remote files. Backup archives can be optionally encrypted for untrusted online remote storage. It only requires Python 2.4 and provides two scripts: archive and restore. The system is extremely simple to set up, and a comprehensive test suite is provided.
BundleMan manages the releases of an application built on versioned products under Subversion. An application is seen as a product suite defined using the Subversion svn:externals property. An application is a bundle of products. Products are versioned pieces of software. Releasing an application is about taking care of tagging the source repository, managing the version of each products, managing CHANGELOGs, creating a source package archive, and giving ways to maintain a release without blocking the trunk development.
Cedar Backup is a software package designed to manage system backups for a pool of local and remote machines. Cedar Backup understands how to back up filesystem data as well as MySQL and PostgreSQL databases and Subversion repositories. It can also be easily extended to support other kinds of data sources. Cedar Backup is focused around weekly backups to a single CD or DVD disc. It supports multisession discs, allowing you to add incremental data to a disc on a daily basis. Cedar Backup also provides a Python library of backup-related functionality.
