Metakit is a small, portable database library using a hybrid relational / hierarchical data model with a column-wise internal storage format. For C++, include a single header file and 125 kb DLL or statically link directly. Ideal for desktops, embedded systems, smartphones, and PDAs. Bindings for Python and Tcl. A very mature, stable code base.
txtorcon is a Twisted-based asynchronous Tor control protocol implementation. Twisted is an event-driven networking engine written in Python, and Tor is an onion-routing network designed to improve people’s privacy and security on the Internet. It includes unit-tests with 96%+ coverage, multiple examples, and documentation. There are abstractions to track Tor configuration and state (circuits, streams), launch private instances, support Hidden Service, and more.
OpenTeacher is a vocabulary training application that helps you learn a foreign language. It uses a list of words in both a known and a foreign language and tests you. It supports smart question asking and interval training with Think answers, shuffle answer, and repeat answer input modes. It has easy symbol, Greek, and Cyrillic input, and reads and writes T2K (Teach2000) and WRTS files, and reads ABBYY Lingvo Tutor files. It is available in Arabic, Australian English, Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese (Traditional), Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Hebrew, Hungarian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Serbian, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish.
dispy is a Python framework for parallel execution of computations by distributing them across multiple processors in a single machine (SMP), or among many machines in a cluster or grid. The computations can be standalone programs or Python functions. dispy is well suited for the data parallel (SIMD) paradigm where a computation is evaluated with different (large) datasets independently (similar to Hadoop, MapReduce, Parallel Python). dispy features include automatic distribution of dependencies (files, Python functions, classes, modules), client-side and server-side fault recovery, scheduling of computations to specific nodes, encryption for security, sharing of computation resources if desired, and more.
asyncoro is a Python framework for concurrent distributed network programming with asynchronous completions and coroutines. Asynchronous completions implemented in asyncoro are socket I/O operations (non-blocking sockets), database cursors, sleep timers, and locking primitives. Programs developed with asyncoro have the same logic and structure as Python programs with threads, except for a few syntactic changes. It supports socket I/O notification mechanisms epoll, kqueue, /dev/poll (and poll and select, where necessary), and Windows I/O Completion Ports (IOCP) for high performance and scalability, and SSL for security. asyncoro features include remote execution of coroutines, coroutines monitoring other coroutines, coroutines communicating with messages, message channels etc., for concurrent, distributed, fault-tolerant programming.
