A bunch of free (well, GFDL-licensed) maps, many in SVG formats.
Another iCalendar library. This one has perhaps the best API of all the ones I've used and seems to work with all the iCal feeds I've thrown at it.
Nifty looking dataviz toolkit. Some overlap with Processing, it seems, but there's also a bunch of graph/node stuff in Prefuse that looks neat. It's Java, unfortunatly, but maybe that'll be a good excuse to try out the recent advances in Jython.
Hells yeah! I heard about this a while back, and have been hoping it would get open-sourced. Fantastic.
RTF generator written in Python. Looks like a docutils writer based on PyRTF should be pretty trivial, and that might make a better reST -> Word workflow than my current reST -> ODF -> OO.org -> Word nonsense.
Python charting package. Yes, it's YA, but this one uses Cairo and looks *nice*.
From the Chandler project, a Python module to parse “natural” datetime constructs (i.e. “tomorrow”, “next monday”, and even “two weeks from last thursday at noon”). The API is shitty and Java-esque, but the functionality is great.
This is a pretty big deal: I've been using ctypes in Python for quite some time, and I can attest to how much better it is than writting C/C++ wrappers. XPCOM in particular is a total PITA, so js-ctypes should mean a bunch of new, awesome Mozilla plugins.
We should support bcrypt in Django if this module is installed.
Frank Liang's hypenation algorithm (i.e. the good one that TeX uses) in Python.
“Package for using processes which mimics the threading module, and allows the sharing of objects between processes.”
“Pyglet is a cross-platform gaming / multimedia library written in pure Python.” Built on OpenGL.
Low-level database connectors for MySQL. Essentially you get to use a relational database without SQL. Could be very interesting when combined with an ORM.
Matt says this is a better iCal library than the other two I just bookmarked…
“CalCore is an advanced, flexible calendaring component for Python. It allows the Python developer do write advanced calendaring applications either using their own event storage or integrating with external calendar servers.”
A bunch of format tools; itools.csv, itools.ical, …
Hell freezes over
