Beneath A Binary Sky is an engine that simulates a world in which robots controlled by programs can live, work, fight, and even bear new children. The long-term goal of the project is to create a fully configurable engine that can simulates any kind of world, from simple to complex ones with many rules and events.
Mother is a framework written in Python and based on Twisted. It is designed to make development of Web applications easy and fast. It provides: simple URL mapping to code; handling of multiple content types (HTML, JSON, etc.); integration with Tentacles ORM; and the use of templating tools (currently, only Mako is supported).
Flexmock is a mock/stub/spy library for Python. Its API is inspired by a Ruby library of the same name. However, it is not a goal of Python Flexmock to be a clone of the Ruby version. Instead, the focus is on providing full support for testing Python programs and making the creation of fake objects as unobtrusive as possible. Flexmock’s design focuses on simplicity and intuitiveness. This means that the API is as lean as possible, though a few convenient short-hand methods are provided to aid brevity and readability. Flexmock declarations are structured to read more like English sentences than API calls, and it is possible to chain them together in any order to achieve high degree of expressiveness in a single line of code.
Archipel is a solution to manage and supervise virtual machines. No matter if you have a few locally on your computer or thousands through data centers, Archipel is a central solution to manage them all. You can use all libvirt-supported virtualization engines like KVM, Xen, OpenVZ, or VMWare. You can perform all basic virtualization commands and many other things like live migration, VMCasts, packages, etc. Archipel uses XMPP for all communication. There is no Web service or custom protocol. You just need at least one XMPP server, like eJabberd, to start playing with it. This allows Archipel to work completely in real time. You never have to refresh the user interface. You'll be notified as soon as something happens. You can even use your favorite chat clients to command your infrastructure. You can open a chat conversation with your virtual machine and say things like "How are you today?" or "Hey, please reboot."
