pyReScene is a tool that recreates original RARs by backing up the metadata. It is a port of ReScene .NET to Python. It provides a mechanism for backing up and restoring the metadata from "scene" released RAR files. RAR archive volumes are rebuilt using the stored metadata in the SRR file and the files extracted from the RAR archive. pyReScene consists of multiple related tools: pyReScene Auto to create a complete SRR with one simple command, pyReSample to recreate sample files, and pyReScene Usenet to create SRR files on the fly from Usenet postings. Lots of other small scripts for managing SRR and SRS files are available too.
pySimpleQuiz lets you define a simple online quiz just by writing a very simple plain text file. The file consist of questions, answer choices, and some strings you can translate for the quiz to speak your language. A quiz consists of multiple questions each having multiple selections, from which the user has to pick the right one. After the answers are given, a score and correct answers are provided for the user. The score and the person who did the quiz are logged and one user can take the quiz only once. It does not require installation, XML, a database, a Web server, or any HTML skills.
PYBAG implements a portable bag and is intended for fast synchronization and backup. It lets you use a portable digital storage device to carry your electronic documents similar to the way you can use a bag to carry paper documents. You can synchronize the bag with your original files easily. If a synchronization conflict occurs, it will be reported. You can specify rules for automatic conflict resolution. With PYBAG, you can backup files and synchronize any changes made to the original files with the bag. The synchronization process will only copy changed files. The program is cross-platform and independent from the OS and filesystem. You may easily synchronize files between Windows and Linux, for example. Symbolic links are supported on all systems (if the OS or filesystem does not support symlinks, then they are emulated). This program has a GUI and a command line interface.
pybonjour provides a pure Python interface (via ctypes) to Apple Bonjour and compatible DNS-SD libraries (such as Avahi). It allows Python scripts to take advantage of Zero Configuration Networking (Zeroconf) to register, discover, and resolve services on both local and wide-area networks. Since pybonjour is implemented in pure Python, scripts that use it can easily be ported to Mac OS X, Windows, Linux, and other systems that run Bonjour.
pycms is a minimalist component-based Web Content Management System based on CherryPy. It has most of the goodies of Plone/Zope: Python instead of a PHP security mess, no MySQL can of worms, clean separation of code and content, and the ability to run nicely behind a Web server/cache/load balancer. In addition, it features plain text storage of all site contents and settings in JSON files, effortless theming, and a small memory footprint.
pydance is a dancing game written in Python, formerly named pyDDR. The idea is simple. There's a floor mat with arrows, and the game scrolls arrows up the screen to the beat while playing a song. When the arrows reach the top of the screen (not sooner and not later), the player hits the corresponding arrow on the pad, and given that it's hit on time with the beat, points are scored. Based on how well the dance is put together, s/he is graded at the end of the song. Both keyboard and mat play are supported.
pyDirStat is a small tool to view statistical information about a directory. It will generate a view of all files contained in a directory (and subdirectories) with rectangles. Each rectangular area is proportional to the file sizes. It's useful for viewing disk usage with graphics. It's a non-interactive command-line tool that will generate HTML or SVG or SWF files. On Windows, it also runs as a shell extension.
