VCalSax is a simple Python module for managing scheduler data in XML. It enables loading data from VCalendar files into DOM trees, and to rewrite such trees as VCalendar files. To make such conversions, VCalSax defines a Sax parser which changes the VCalendar format to a specific XML format, and a XSL Transform to build VCalendar files. VCalendar is a standard format for scheduler data used in many calendar software (KOrganizer, Evolution, etc.).
vdbmaster is a simple program to ease the process of burning movies to a DVD. It uses growisofs to write the disc, and the VideoDB database for selecting the movies to write and keeping records of where your movies are stored. Once the DVD has been written, vdbmaster updates the movies in VideoDB with the name of the disc where they have been burnt. Then, it asks whether you want to remove the original files from your hard drive. It correctly handles movies spanning more than one file, as well subtitle files, as long as the movie filename (without the extension) is the same. The code is clean, small, and easily customizable.
Vikuit is an advanced social networking engine optimized for Google App Engine. It aims to possess every feature for a social network engine while remaining easy to deploy and manage. It is built with Python and is focused on running on Google App Engine (GAE). Vikuit is intended to fill the gap between software-as-a-service platforms like Ning and on-site deployments. Its key features include articles and news, support for multiple languages, groups, Google native authentication, microbloging, following a user, profiles and profile comments, comments, photo galleries, full searching, user dashboard, and recent activity. For developers, Vikuit uses themes based on jinja templates and special modules, called Vikuitlets, that provide an easy way to extend it.
Vimv is a utility to help rename various files at once using a text editor. It opens the list of files in a directory inside a text editor (vi by default). Then, any changes made in the editor will be reflected in the filesystem (the files in the directory will be renamed to the names saved in the editor).
Virt-Factory is a framework for managing a large number of Xen virtual machines, such as might be found in data centers or large lab configurations. It works by managing a pool of registered physical hosts and then deploying virtual machines, which have specific roles as defined by their "profiles" (profiles act as shareable virtual appliance definitions), onto those hosts. Virt-Factory provides both a Web UI (for ease of use) and an XML-RPC API (for scripting of admin actions). A command line interface (along with other advanced batch management features) is coming soon.
