GCache is a Python module that provides a generic cache class useful for speeding up any application where objects are referenced by keys. It uses object metadata to optimize hit-rates and freshness for fetches, and uses a "write-through" mechanism for writes and deletes. It can use "if-modified-since" fetches or rsync delta updates to refresh stale cached objects. GSource classes are provided for generating useful metadata from common sources (os.stat calls and MIME headers). A simple example urlCache is implemented that supports HTTP 1.1 (rfc2616) cache-control and expire headers to ensure freshness. Also included is an rfc2616 package useful for parsing HTTP 1.1 headers, and a PCache package implementing a persistant cache using a Python shelve.
Hep Message Server is software that transfers messages between different messaging systems. Eventually, it should transparently route messages between email, weblogs, and instant messaging. Currently Hep does one thing: fetches news feeds from Web sites and lets you view them in your email client.
Xmpppy is a Python library grown from the jabberpy project. Though this library has borrowed some code from jabberpy, it is a separate project with its own architecture and slightly different API. It is primarily intended to be used with the RFC-compliant jabber servers (like ejabberd), but it should work with all popular servers (including GTalk).
uTorrent.py is a Python module for accessing the interface exposed by the uTorrent Web UI. Current features include getting and setting uTorrent parameters, viewing information and statistics on torrents and files, and setting torrent state and file priorities. Small example utilities are included. Note that the download file is a 7zip archive, not a PNG image.
The Darwin Calendar Server is a standards-compliant server that allows multiple users to collaboratively share calendaring information. It provides a shared location on the network to store schedules, and allows users to send each other and manage invitations. In order to provide interoperability with multiple calendaring clients, the server implements the CalDAV protocol, which is an extension of WebDAV, which is in turn an extension of HTTP.
