Kiwi is an object-oriented framework for developing graphical applications using Python. It has a set of classes that provide a solid application architecture, and a set of high level graphical components that can be used as drop-in replacements for some of the widgets in PyGTK, including CList, CTree, Label, OptionMenu, and more. It includes a complete developer's manual, with examples and screenshots, and full API documentation.
Python Service Objects is a package that simplifies development of HTTP handlers. With its built-in session handling and its bridging system, it allows you to write one handler that will run with mod_python, NASAPY, CGI, etc. It offers an easy interface to HTTP info. It includes a simple, fast, robust, powerful, and extensible OO template parser.
pyNMS is a set of Python modules for network management, network testing, systems management, and general use. It contains a nearly complete implementation of SNMPv2c, a SMI/MIB package, and a MIB "compiler". There are many others, such as a telnet/console access class, XML tools, an IPv4 class, etc. There is, unfortunately, little documentation, and not everything works properly yet, but they work well enough to be useful for many things.
ClearSilver is a high-performance, powerful, and language-neutral HTML template system. It enforces a separation between presentation code and application logic which makes writing, debugging, and maintaining Web pages easier. It can be used from C/C++, Python, Perl, Java, and Ruby. It runs on Windows and Unix.
PyBackend is a Python module which provides object persistence through a relational database backend. You need not write SQL queries within your Python class to store or retrieve object-attributes. If your data model allows you to view attributes of your objects as columns of tables in an RDBMS, then PyBackend is for you. It allows the developer to map individual classes to corresponding databases. Hence, an application using PyBackend can use multiple databases to populate its objects; all transparently to the developer. It frees the application programmer even from the task of creating and managing database connections.
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).
Elektra is a universal hierarchical configuration store, similar to GConf and the Windows Registry. It allows programs to read and save their configurations with a consistent API, and allows them to be aware of other applications' configurations, leveraging easy application integration. While architecturally similar to other OS registries, Elektra does not have most of the problems found in those implementations. Elektra includes a library, an API, and commandline and GUI tools for administration tasks.
Cymbeline is an Python application server framework that includes functionality such as database and arbitrary object pooling, Web servers (including SSL), a persistent object repository, and a text console. It was originally designed as an administrative shell for an embedded system, but has since morphed into a more general purpose, run anywhere toolkit.
