Accerciser lets you test all aspects of accessibility on the GNOME desktop. It uses AT-SPI to inspect and control widgets, allowing you to check whether an application is providing correct information to assistive technologies and automated test frameworks. It has a simple plugin framework that you can use to extend and customize the accessibility information displayed. It is written in Python and uses the pyLinAcc component from LSR to interact with AT-SPI using pyORBit. In essence, it is a next generation at-poke tool.
Albatross is a small and flexible toolkit for developing highly stateful Web applications. It provides browser-based sessions via automatically-generated hidden form fields, server side sessions via a session server or file-based session store, a powerful and extensible templating system which promotes separation of presentation and implementation for improved program maintainability, implicit handling for pagination of sequences and tree browsing, template macros to allow repeated HTML and special effects HTML to be defined in one location, and lookup tables to translate Python values to arbitrary template code. Applications can be deployed as either CGI programs or as mod_python module with minor changes to program mainline. Custom deployment can be achieved by developing your own Request class.
BitLife is an implementation of life using boolean operations (AND, OR, XOR), computing each new cell from 9 bits (itself & neighbours). It's performed in parallel on the whole image by bitblit operations (with hardware accelearation where possible). This also allows many parallel life games to run in each bitplane of the screen, giving a translucent blending effect. A proof-of-concept Python (pygame/Numeric) implementation and an xscreensaver hack are included.
CVSToys is a collection of companion tools for the Concurrent Versions System, better known as CVS. It currently contains FreshCVS, which performs actions in response to a commit. Actions include notification by various methods, updating a working copy, and rsync'ing to backup. Another key feature of FreshCVS notifications is that you receive one per commit, not one for each directory of the commit as loginfo-triggered scripts are prone to do. FreshCVS is extensible with Python, and notifications may be published by a Perspective Broker network service, allowing 3rd party clients to listen in.
ChangeNav is a GUI application for managing ChangeLogs for software projects. Basically it allows you to add "Changes" and "Releases" to your log through a really simple interface. All the data is stored in a nicely formatted ChangeLog ready for distribution. ChangeNav can handle any number of projects, has a customizable editor, and action items, all configurable through it's config file 'cnav.conf'. The file is very self-explainatory. ChangeNav is written in Python using PythonCard and wxPython for its GUI.
Cog is the Checkpointed Object Graph object database, providing semi-transparent persistence for large sets of interrelated Python objects. It handles automatic loading of objects on reference, and saving of modified objects back to disk. Reference counting is used to automatically remove no longer referenced objects from storage, and objects will be automatically be attached to the database if a persistent object references them.
ConfigObj is a simple but powerful config file reader and writer for Python applications. It is very easy to use and has a straightforward programmer's interface and a simple syntax for config files. It also supports nested sections to any level, list values, multiple line values, string interpolation, a powerful validation system, including automatic type checking and conversion, repeated sections, default values, preservation of comments and the order of keys and sections, and no external dependencies.
