python-jabberbot is a Jabber bot framework for Python that makes it easy to write simple Jabber bots. One can use these Jabber bots to provide information about running systems, to make Web sites interact with Jabber-enabled visitors, or notify the bot owner about updates or changes that are monitored with custom Python scripts.
MinimalModbus is an easy-to-use Python module for talking to instruments (slaves) from a computer (master) using the Modbus protocol. Example code includes drivers for Eurotherm and Omega process controllers. The only dependency is the pySerial module. This software supports the ‘Modbus RTU’ serial communication version of the protocol, and is intended for use on Linux, OS X, and Windows platforms. It has been tested with Python2.6, Python2.7, and Python3.2.
ffnet is a fast and easy-to-use feed-forward neural network training solution for Python. You can use it to train, test, save, load, and use an artificial neural network with sigmoid activation functions. Any network connectivity without cycles is allowed (not only layered). Training can be performed with several optimization schemes, including genetic alorithm based optimization. There is access to exact partial derivatives of network outputs versus its inputs. Normalization of data is handled automatically by ffnet.
