TMon System is a room temperature monitoring system, that uses a digital multimeter (Mastech MAS-345) connected to a serial port with an RS232C cable. Temperature readings are taken at set intervals, and should the temperature reach a certain threshold, an alert is sent via email or SMS. All readings are either logged to a file, or via 'syslog'.
Libbraille makes it easy to access Braille displays and terminals. It can write text on a Braille display, directly draw Braille dots, or get the value of pressed keys. It is compatible with a wide range of Braille displays, and can autodetect some of them. A virtual GTK+ display is provided so that developers can test how their application would be rendered in Braille.
(Serial Ports on) Steroids enables users to execute remote C functions in a Python shell over a serial interface. It is useful for embedded system testing and industrial automation. It generates C code for the target and a Python script for the host automatically from a C header file.
ansistego provides terminal-level steganography for scripts and other ASCII files (ie, protection against 'cat'). It intersperses a text/script with commented ANSI codes that cause most terminals to clear sensitive lines as soon as they are written. Only a specified front text appears. The front text is embedded in the script using ANSI-cloaked comments, so that the text appears unaltered when the script is viewed with cat, but the script can be run without any decoding stage.
acgtools is a driver for the ACG HF MultiISO RFID reader written entirely in Python and including several developer tools, including EEPROM backup/edit/restoration for enabling some of the more exotic features supported by this hardware. There are also sample applications, notably an e-Passport reader.
