Today (programmers' day 2013) I'm happy to announce that memprof is
officially part of the Debian project (testing and unstable).
If Debian is your distribution of choice you can now install memprof
just by doing:
apt-get install python-memprof
As time progresses, so does my Redis object mapper.
The "rom" package is a Redis object mapper for Python. It sports an
interface similar to Django's ORM, SQLAlchemy + Elixir, or Appengine's
The changelog for recent releases can be seen below my signature.
You can find the package at:

Please CC me on any replies if you have any questions or comments.
[changed] Added exception when performing .all(), .execute(), or .count() on
query objects that have had no filters or attribute ordering provided.
This addresses issue #12.
[changed] Moved column definitions to their own module, shouldn't affect any
normal uses of rom.
[added] For users of Redis 2.6 and later, there is a beta Lua-enabled
option that allows for multiple unique columns on models. In some cases,
this may improve performance when writing many entities very quickly.
[added] The ability to reload an entity from Redis, optionally discarding
modifications to the object itself. Check out the documentation for
Model.refresh(), Session.refresh(), and Session.refresh_all()
[added] Tests for the newly changed/added features.
[changed] Tests no longer use flushdb() - all test models/indexes/etc. are
prefixed with RomTest, and we find/delete such keys before and after any
tests are run. Now anyone can reasonably run the test suite.

eGenix PyRun - One file Python Runtime
An easy-to-use single file relocatable Python run-time -
available for Linux, Mac OS X and Unix platforms,
with support for Python 2.5, 2.6 and 2.7
This announcement is also available on our web-site for online reading:
Our new eGenix PyRun combines a Python interpreter with an almost
complete Python standard library into a single easy-to-use executable,
that does not require a system wide installation and is fully
eGenix PyRun's executable only needs 11MB, but still supports most
Python application and scripts - and it can be further compressed to
just 3-4MB using upx.
Compared to a regular Python installation of typically 100MB on disk,
this makes eGenix PyRun ideal for applications and scripts that need
to be distributed to many target machines, client installations or
It makes "installing" Python on a Unix based system as simple as
copying a single file.
We have been using the product internally in our mxODBC Connect Server
since 2008 with great success and have now extracted it into a
stand-alone open-source product.
We provide both the source archive to build your own eGenix PyRun, as
well as pre-compiled binaries for Linux, FreeBSD and Mac OS X, as 32-
and 64-bit versions. The binaries can be downloaded manually, or you
can let our automatic install script install-pyrun take care of the
installation: ./install-pyrun dir and you're done.
Please see the product page for more details:
This is a new minor release of eGenix PyRun, which comes with updates
to the latest Python releases and includes a number of compatibility
* Upgraded eGenix PyRun to work with and use Python 2.7.5 per
* Upgraded eGenix PyRun to use Python 2.6.8 as default Python 2.6
* PyRun will now create a symlink from "pyrunX.X" to "pythonX.X" and
"pyrunX.X" to "python" in the bin/ dir to enhance compatibility
with scripts and applications that hardwire the name of the Python
interpreter to "python".
* Removed the compiler package from being compiled into PyRun. If
needed, it can be installed separately. Note that the compiler
package needs the parser module which is not compiled into PyRun
either, but is still available as extension module.
* Removed the Tkinter Python module from being compiled into
PyRun. If needed, it can be installed separately. Note that the
Tkinter module needs the _tkinter C module, which is not compiled
into PyRun either, but is still available as extension module.
* Fixed sys.argv when using interactive mode to default to [''].
* All eGenix PyRun distribution packages are now GPG signed with our
release key and come with MD5 and SHA1 hashes to check for download
install-pyrun Quick Installation Enhancements
Since version 1.1.0, eGenix PyRun includes a shell script called
install-pyrun, which greatly simplifies installation of eGenix
PyRun. It works much like the virtualenv shell script used for
creating new virtual environments (except that there's nothing virtual
about PyRun environments).
With the script, an eGenix PyRun installation is as simple as running:
We have enhanced this script somewhat since the last release:
* install-pyrun now defaults to always installing the most recent
setuptools and pip versions from PyPI.
* install-pyrun now installs setuptools instead of distribute, after
the two projects got merged and continued under the older name.
* Added new option --pyrun-executable to define an alternative name
for the executable, which is then also used when installing
setuptools and pip, e.g. "python" for even better compatibility
with standard Python.
* install-run will now prefer curl over wget when downloading
packages from PyPI.
* install-pyrun local distribution options will now also work with
* install-pyrun now defaults to installing setuptools 1.1.1 and pip
1.4.1 when looking for local downloads of these tools.
* The short options in install-pyrun now also have corresponding long
* Fixed SyntaxWarning in pyrunX.X: name 'pyrun_script' is assigned to
before global declaration global pyrun_script

On behalf of the IronPython team, I'm happy to announce the final
release of IronPython 2.7.4. This release includes everything from
IronPython 2.7.3 and earlier. Like all IronPython 2.7-series releases,
.NET 4 is required to install it. Installing this release will replace
any existing IronPython 2.7-series installation. Assemblies for
embedding are provided for .NET 3.5, .NET 4, .NET 4.5, and Silverlight
IronPython is an implementation of Python that targets Microsoft's
.NET Framework and the open-source Mono framework. It aims to be as
compatible as possible with Python 2.7 while taking advantage of the
.NET Framework's capabilities. It is also easily embedded in .NET
applications to provide scripting capabilities.
Improvements in IronPython 2.7.4 are mainly a collection of bug fixes,
many of which are directed at getting IPython working. Specific
* Many fixes to the ast module (thanks to Pawel Jasinski)
* A bunch of fixes to locale and tty handling (also courtesy of Pawel)
designed to get IPython working.
* .NET 4.5 builds, courtesy of Aleksander Heintz
* Other fixes from Michael van der Kolff, Fraser Tweedale, and Igor (WildOgr)
* A bunch of small fixes backported from the master branch
Android and Silverlight 4 assemblies have been dropped from this
version. The Android assemblies need some more work to be usable with
Xamarin.Android, and Silverlight 4 is just plain dead.
For Visual Studio integration, check out Python Tools for Visual
Studio which has support for IronPython as well as CPython, and many
other fantastic features.
IronPython 2.7.4 is also available for embedding via NuGet. The main
package is IronPython, and the standard library is in

Don't let this splendid opportunity pass to promote your project and to
contribute to the diversity and great experience of PyCon.DE 2013!
Speaking for the whole team of organizers, I hope to see many of you at
isort automatically sorts and sections Python imports. It can turn even the most messy import structure into nice clean sections without duplicates. isort provides a command line utility, Python library, and Kate plugin for convenient use.
New in this release:
- Added support for multiple line-wrap output modes
- Added support for sorting based on import length
- Keep processing after encountering a file in the skip list
This is an Anki deck for learning basics of Python.
(a deck is a set of QA pairs with Anki sw checking for how well the student remembers the material and selects optimum repetition schedule, this is so called "spaced repetition technique; as added bonus Anki is written in Python + PyQT :-).
