Boa Constructor is a cross-platform RAD GUI-building IDE. It offers visual frame creation and manipulation, an object inspector, a debugger, integrated help, and many views on the source, including inheritance hierarchies, object methods and properties, and HTML generated from documentation strings. It is written in Python and uses the wxPython toolkit which wraps wxWindows.
cgi_buffer is a group of libraries that may be used to improve performance of CGI scripts (and other content generation engines) in some circumstances by applying performance-enhancing HTTP mechanisms that are typically not supported by them. Currently, Perl, Python, and PHP4 are supported. The Python library may also be used as a wrapper around another CGI script.
getmail is intended as a simple, secure, and reliable replacement for fetchmail. It retrieves email (either all messages, or only unread messages) from one or more POP3, SPDS, or IMAP4 servers (with or without SSL) for one or more email accounts, and reliably delivers into qmail-style Maildirs, mboxrd files, or through external MDAs (command deliveries) specified on a per-account basis. getmail also has excellent support for domain (multidrop) mailboxes, including delivering messages to different users or destinations based on the envelope recipient address.
mxCrypto is an extension package that provides OO-style access to the cipher algorithms and hash functions included in OpenSSL/SSLeay, a very nifty cryptographic library originally written by Eric Young and now maintained by the OpenSSL team. Its main purpose is filling in the missing parts in Andrew Kuchling's pycrypt export package with high quality implementations. Due to the ITAR export restrictions on cryptographic software, Andrew's implementations are not legally downloadable from outside the US.
mxDateTime is a Python module designed to do complex date/time handling with Python. It includes new Python extensions objects for storing and working with date and time as well as date/time parsers, access to the NIST time services and many different conversion routines to other well-known date/time standards such as ISO, ARPA, COM dates, Unix ticks, JDN, MJD, TJD and others.
Pypvm is a Python module which allows interaction with the Parallel Virtual Machine (PVM) package. PVM allows a collection of computers connected by a network to serve as a single parallel computer. This package allows Python programs to do almost anything that is possible for Fortran or C programs, including starting and stopping other programs, sending them messages, and accessing cluster-wide data stores.
