The pylib library features the popular py.test command line tool for rapidly writing and running tests in Python and py.execnet, a new way to do ad-hoc distribution of Python code to remote processes. py.test runs well on Linux, Windows, and OSX using Python 2.4 through to 2.6. It can distribute a single test run to multiple machines. It is used in many projects, ranging from running tens of thousands of tests integrated with buildbot to a few inlined tests on a command line script.
Veusz is a scientific plotting package, designed to create publication-ready Postscript, PDF, or SVG output. It features an easy to use graphical interface as well as a command line interface and can be scripted or embedded in Python scripts. Graphs are constructed in a modular fashion from separate components. Datasets can be interactively modified or created from within the program.
Simulated annealing is a computational algorithm for optimization. It mimics the physical process of thermal annealing in which a metal is heated and then slowly cooled to settle into a highly ordered crystal structure. For common metals, the lowest energy state is already known. But the method is useful for other problems where the best state is not known and exhaustively searching all possible states is impractical. The method is applied by modeling the problem as a physical system with structure, energy, and temperature. This Python module implements simulated annealing so that it can be easily applied to a variety of problems. An example program is include to perform simulated annealing of the traveling salesman problem.
Siptrack is a project intended for automated, highly scriptable, and flexible device and IP address/network management. The siptrackd package includes the siptrack server, which is accessed via an XML-RPC interface. The other components of the siptrack system are siptrack and siptrackweb.
Siptrack is a project intended for automated, highly scriptable, and flexible device and IP address/network management. The siptrackweb package includes a Django Web application used to communicate with a siptrack server. The other components of the siptrack system are siptrack and siptrackd.
