libextractor is a library used to extract meta-data from files of arbitrary type. It is designed to use helper-libraries to perform the actual extraction, and to be trivially extendable by linking against external extractors for additional file types. The goal is to provide developers of file-sharing networks, file managers, and WWW-indexing bots with a universal library to obtain meta-data about files. It includes a shell-command and bindings for Java (JNI) and Python.
Booleano is an interpreter of Boolean expressions; a library to define and run filters available as text (e.g. in a natural language) or in Python code. In order to handle text-based filters, Booleano ships with a fully-featured parser whose grammar is adaptive: Its properties can be overridden using simple configuration directives. On the other hand, the library exposes a Pythonic API for filters written in pure Python. These filters are particularly useful to build reusable conditions from objects provided by a third party library.
