Construct is a Python library for declaratively defined data structures, called "constructs". These constructs can both parse data into an object and build an object into data. Constructs handle fields of either byte or bit granularity, structs, unions, sequences, repeaters, adapters, validators, switching, pointers, on-demand (lazy) parsing, and many more. The library defines a large number of primitive constructs, as well a large inventory of file formats and network protocols.
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.
Gnosis Utils contains several Python modules for XML processing, plus other generally useful tools: xml.pickle (serializes objects to/from XML, API compatible with the standard pickle module), xml.objectify (turns arbitrary XML documents into Python objects), xml.validity (enforces XML validity constraints via DTD or Schema), xml.indexer (full text indexing/searching), and many more.
Karaoke con SMIL is a project to synchronize audio, text, and images and export the final result to SMIL, which can be played in multimedia players such as Real Player, Helix Player, Ambulant Player, etc. on several devices (computers, mobile phones, PDAs, etc.). In short, this application synchronizes the multimedia elements in a way similar to karaoke.
LEPL is a recursive descent parser library written in Python. It is based on parser combinator libraries popular in functional programming, but also exploits Python language features. Operators provide a friendly syntax, and the consistent use of generators supports full backtracking and resource management. Backtracking implies that a wide variety of grammars are supported; appropriate memoisation ensures that even left-recursive grammars terminate.
