boodebr is a collection of Python modules from boodebr.org. boodebr.ion provides JSON and XML serialization with a common API (internal and external). boodebr.config provides flexible configuration file handling (similar to INI files, but using JSON/XML with full object pickling).
Texpipeline allows the conversion of (La)TeX documents with simple filter pipes such as "cat input.tex | tex2pdf > output.pdf". It removes the hassle of running (la)tex again and again, leaving lots of auxiliary files in the current directory. This is especially useful for programs which create LaTeX files automatically and just want to present the PDF output to the user.
