ACDK is a development framework with a similar target of Microsoft's .NET or Sun's ONE platform, but it uses C++ as a core implementation language. It implements the standard library packages, including acdk::lang, acdk::lang::reflect, acdk::util, acdk::io, acdk::text (including regexpr), acdk::net, acdk::sql, acdk::xml, and more. Flexible allocator/garbage collection, threading, and Unicode are implemented in the core of ACDK. Extensions make C++ objects available for reflection, serialization, aspect-oriented class attributes, and [D]ynamic [M] ethod [I]nvocation. This DMI acts as an universal object oriented call interface to connect C++ with scripting languages (Java, Perl, Tcl, Python, Lisp, Visual Basic, and VBScript) and standard component technologies (CORBA and COM).
The Biochemical ALgorithms Library (BALL) is a framework for rapid application development in molecular modeling and structural bioinformatics. BALL provides an extensive set of data structures as well as classes for molecular mechanics, advanced solvation methods, comparison and analysis of protein structures, file import/export, NMR shift prediction, and visualization. Its extensibility results from an object-oriented and generic programming approach.
Candygram is a Python implementation of Erlang concurrency primitives. Erlang is widely respected for its elegant built-in facilities for concurrent programming. This package attempts to emulate those facilities as closely as possible in Python. With Candygram, developers can send and receive messages between threads using semantics nearly identical to those in the Erlang language.
Cimbiote allows writing and running CIM providers written in Python. It is intended to make CIM development more accessible to developers. A good analogy is that Cimbiote is to CIM as mod_python is to Apache. Plugins are distributed as separate RPMs. Incoming CIM requests are routed through Cimbiote to the appropriate plugins and back into Cimbiote, allowing CIM plugins to be written without any C or C++ code, and, more importantly, without vast knowledge of CIM. Cimbiote plugins register MOF files like any other CIM provider, and are fully accessible over standard CIM tools like wbemxec and wbemcli.
EmPy is a system for embedding Python expressions and statements in template text. It takes an EmPy source file, processes it, and produces output. This is accomplished via expansions, which are special signals to the EmPy system and are set off by a special prefix (by default the at sign, '@'). It can expand arbitrary Python expressions and statements in this way, as well as a variety of special forms. Textual data not explicitly delimited in this way is sent unaffected to the output, allowing Python to be used in effect as a markup language. Also supported are callbacks via hooks, recording and playback via diversions, and dynamic, chainable filters. The system is highly configurable via command line options and embedded commands.
