- Aspen – a web server for highly extensible Python-based publication, application, and hybrid websites. As a potential alternative to Python’s builtin HTTPServer. MIT license.
- KomodoEdit (a testimonial) – I am going to try this out, though vi/vim will always be my first love (JJ also has an article on using ctags).
- Virtuoso - an innovative Universal Server platform that delivers an enterprise level Data Integration and Management solution for SQL, RDF, XML, Web Services, and Business Processes. There’s way to much bla bla bla in that sentence, but apparently this is really sweet at handling SPARQL/RDF triples. Kingsley Idehen writes extensively about this on his blog (e.g.).
- Drizzle – a database optimized for Cloud and Net applications. Way too early to commit to this yet. See The New MySQL Landscape for more interesting going ons.
- AuthKit – authentication and authorization toolkit for WSGI applications and frameworks.
- Geodjango – a world-class geographic web framework. Lots of great ideas and pointers to libraries in here, even if you’re not planning to use this itself.
- Disco – an open-source implementation of the Map-Reduce framework for distributed computing. The Disco core is written in Erlang, a functional language that is designed for building robust fault-tolerant distributed applications. Users of Disco typically write jobs in Python, which makes it possible to express even complex algorithms or data processing tasks often only in tens of lines of code. Here’s a blog post about the same, with references to vs. Hadoop.
- On (Python) packaging. Debating distutil, easy_install and pip.
