PyKstat is a Python interface to the Solaris kstat(3k) API. In addition to the simple wrapper around the kstat interface itself, the package includes a higher level interface which allows one to get the load, CPU information, disk I/O, network I/O and RPC/NFS statistics with single function calls.
XCircuit is a UNIX/X11 program for drawing publishable-quality electrical circuit schematic diagrams and related figures, and producing circuit netlists through schematic capture. XCircuit regards circuits as inherently hierarchical, and writes both hierarchical PostScript output and hierarchical SPICE netlists. Circuit components are saved in and retrieved from libraries which are fully editable. XCircuit does not separate artistic expression from circuit drawing; it maintains flexiblity in style without compromising the power of schematic capture.
PyWordNet is a Python interface to the WordNet database of word meanings and lexical relationships. It presents a concise interface to WordNet, that allows the user to type expressions such as N['dog'], hyponyms(N['dog'] ), and closure(ADJ['red'], SYNONYM) to query the database.
Direct Internet Message Encapsulation (DIME) is a lightweight, binary message format designed to encapsulate one or more application-defined payloads into a single message construct. DIME is typically used for delivering binary SOAP packages, or multiplexing a streaming transport. PyDIME is a simple Python implementation of a DIME generator and parser.
Y Object Database Adapter (YODA) is an environment for creating and running network accessible applications. It can permanently store objects of any type and complexity, and supports attributes of most types (with the exception of only a few Python types, such as thread locks). It can be extended with YODA- server applications, and an application compiler and loader are provided.
Catch the Furball is an icebreaker board game intended for friends to play around a computer. It features a freshly-generated board for each game, an eclectic collection of cards, and beautiful pictures of Cambridge University. The distribution is intended both to allow Web masters to quickly set up their own copy of the game, and to allow tinkerers to use the game engine to make their own games. It includes the editor used to create game data.
The PyGE project aims to provide free cross-platform desktop applications to make the growing collection of copyright-free literary works from Project Gutenberg more accessible to the typical computer user. The suite includes PyGETS, a program for searching and downloading available PG e-texts, PyGEMZ, a program for converting e-texts to a format suitable for both desktop and Palm PDA usage, and PyGERS, a program for comfortably viewing e-texts which includes basic text-to-speech capabilities.
