Pronounced SY PIE, like "sirius python", sipie is a command line player for Sirius online Internet streaming. It requires a login to Sirius's streaming, and both guest and subscriber logins are supported. Streams are entered on the command line or selected interactively. Tab completion of stream names is supported. You can change streams without restarting (and thus without reauthenticating) by hitting CTRL-C while a stream is playing.
arrayfrombuffer allows a programmer to use Numerical Python arrays whose contents are stored in buffer objects, including memory-mapped files. Loading an array from a file is easy, requiring only a module import and a single function call. Loading the array is quick because it doesn't require any copying from one part of memory to another. Arrays created with arrayfrombuffer are also highly memory-efficient, since only the array data that you are currently using gets loaded into memory. When an array is modified, only the modified parts get written back out to disk. These arrays can also be bigger than physical memory.
Python-SOAP is an implementation of the SOAP protocol in the Python programming language. SOAP is the foundation of the so-called Web services, allowing the interaction of software across the network. The goals of the project are standards-compliance, a clean design, and well-written documentation. This implementation is built on top of the DOM, which makes it robust and easily extensible.
PyTest is a small package that facilitates the unit testing process by aggregating PyUnit tests and making them easier to call from the command line and from within other unit tests. Typical tests are written with a 1-1 relationship with the module they test. In packages with multiple modules, it can become cumbersome to run all of the unit tests from the command line. PyTest can run all of the unit tests in a directory by locating all modules that begin with "test_". Reflection is then used to extract the TestCase class, and a suite is constructed, reflecting all test cases. It can also be used programmatically in a test_all.py.
bbgun moves phpBB forums to WordPress blogs. bbgun pulls a forum entry from the phpBB database, translates the text (bbCode to strict XHTML), date, and other fields, and pushes the translated entry into the WordPress database. With bbgun, you can move individual posts, move entire threads, move only certain users' posts, map phpBB users to WordPress authors, and specify WordPress categories for the new entries.
