CalCore is an advanced, flexible calendaring component for Python. It allows the Python developer to write advanced calendaring applications either using their own event storage or integrating with external calendar servers. It features support for private calendars, shared calendars, resource booking, integration with iCalendar clients (Apple iCal, Mozilla Sunbird, KOrganizer) using the iCalendar protocol, invitation workflow, meeting support, including helper functions to look for free time, and recurring event support. It is being used as the core of Nuxeo's CalZope and CPSSharedCalendar products.
Candygram is a Python implementation of Erlang concurrency primitives. Erlang is widely respected for its elegant built-in facilities for concurrent programming. This package attempts to emulate those facilities as closely as possible in Python. With Candygram, developers can send and receive messages between threads using semantics nearly identical to those in the Erlang language.
Card Stories provides a server for a networked guessing game using picture cards. One player (the "author") starts the game by choosing a card, picking a word or a sentence to describe it, and sending out invitations to others to participate. Each of these players receives seven cards and has to pick one that best matches the author's description. Once enough players have chosen a card, the author displays all chosen cards and the players try to figure out which one is the author's. If at least one but not all of them guesses correctly, the author wins, along with the players who guessed correctly. Otherwise, the guessers all win.
Cedar Backup is a software package designed to manage system backups for a pool of local and remote machines. Cedar Backup understands how to back up filesystem data as well as MySQL and PostgreSQL databases and Subversion repositories. It can also be easily extended to support other kinds of data sources. Cedar Backup is focused around weekly backups to a single CD or DVD disc. It supports multisession discs, allowing you to add incremental data to a disc on a daily basis. Cedar Backup also provides a Python library of backup-related functionality.
