What is stevedore?
Python makes loading code dynamically easy, allowing you to configure
and extend your application by discovering and loading extensions
(plugins) at runtime. Many applications implement their own library for
doing this, using __import__ or importlib. stevedore avoids creating
yet another extension mechanism by building on top of setuptools
entry points. The code for managing entry points tends to be
repetitive, though, so stevedore provides manager classes for
implementing common patterns for using dynamically loaded extensions.
* Only log errors from loading plugins if no error handler callback

Wingware | Python IDE
The Intelligent Development Environment for Python Programmers
This is the 5th edition of the PyCon Italia, the largest annual
gathering for the Italian Python community. As usual the conference will
be held in Florence, from May 23 till 25, 2014.
The conference is addressed to organizations and companies, software
developers, system administrator who use or want to use Python for
automation, other IT-specialists and project managers interested in
learning about python, and also hobby enthusiasts who find a great
platform in Python.
Who Should Submit a Proposal?
You. Your friends. Your friends' friends. Anyone with any level of
Python knowledge is a candidate for a good topic at this conference. As
we get attendees of all kinds, we need speakers of all kinds. In all
ways and manners, we try to assemble the most diverse conference we can,
and we do that with your help.
Whether you got started with Python last month or you've been around for
20 years, we think you've got something to share. The Python community
is stronger than ever and we're still reaching new areas, new
industries, and new users. Be a part of the growing Python community and
help shape its future. You don't need to be a well traveled professional
speaker to get on stage at PyCon Italia. What matters is the topics, the
materials, and the drive to present things to this community. Even if
you have never give a talk, do not worry, we will help you.
Deadline : March 23rd.
PyCon Italia gives you opportunities to see a variety of presentations,
panels, and impromptu discussions,
learn about significant advances in the Python development community and
meet fellow developers.
Furthermore there is the possibility to organize recruiting sessions, in
order to give to both companies and developers, the opportunity to start
PyCon Italia days don't finish with the last talk but keep on rocking
during the night! We have organized some wonderful event that you may
want to join!
What is PyDev?
PyDev is an open-source Python IDE on top of Eclipse for Python, Jython and
It comes with goodies such as code completion, syntax highlighting, syntax
analysis, code analysis, refactor, debug, interactive console, etc.
Details on PyDev: http://pydev.org
Details on its development: http://pydev.blogspot.com
What is LiClipse?
LiClipse is a PyDev standalone with goodies such as support for Multiple
cursors, theming and a number of other languages such as Django Templates,
It's also a commercial counterpart which helps supporting the development
Details on LiClipse: http://brainwy.github.io/liclipse/
- **Important**: PyDev requires Eclipse 3.8 or 4.3 onwards and Java 7! For
older versions, keep using PyDev 2.x (or LiClipse for a PyDev standalone
with all requirements bundled).
- **Interactive Console**:
* **Send a single line to the interactive console with F2** (akin to
Ctrl+Alt+Enter but only for the current line).
* **Added support for debugging spawned subprocesses.**
* New Django launches no longer have -noreload to take advantage of
that (but existing launches have to be manually edited -- or removed and
* When terminating a process its subprocesses are also killed (avoiding
django zombie processes).
* In the debugger, locals are now also properly saved on PyPy (requires
a newer version of PyPy too).
* Remote Debugger: when specifying items in
PATHS_FROM_ECLIPSE_TO_PYTHON pathnames are normalized.
* Fixes to work with Jython 2.1 and Jython 2.2.1
* Always setting PYTHONUNBUFFERED environment variable to 1.
* The python default encoding is no longer changed (only
PYTHONIOENCODING is used now and not sys.setdefaultencoding).
* Minor improvements on get referrers.
* **Cython: .pxd and .pxi files are properly supported.**
* Interpreter configuration: It's possible to reorder PYTHONPATH
entries with drag and drop.
* Fixed django interactive shell to work with newer versions of Django.
* Rename working properly for files without extensions.
* Fixed issue where specifying the type of a variable with a comment
was not detected in the code-completion.
* Fixed issue where we'd open a file as if it was an external file when
it was actually a file in the workspace or inside a source folder.
* PyDev Package Explorer: fixed issue where some errors would remain
showing when they didn't exist anymore.
* PyDev Package Explorer: fixed issue where items could change its
order depending on decorations.
* On a double-click on spaces, all the spaces are selected.
- **Test Runner**:
* **Improved py.test integration**: it's now possible to select which
tests to run with Ctrl+F9 (even if not under a class).
* No longer breaks if a file which was in a launch config is removed
(still runs other tests in the launch).
* After a test run finishes, if there are non-daemon threads running
they're printed to the output.
* Fixed UnicodeDecodeError when running unit-tests under python 2.x
* Fixed issue on test discovery on Linux.
- **Sorting Imports**:
* Sort of imports no longer adds spaces at end of imports.
* Sort of imports no longer passes the number of available columns
* It's now also possible to keep the names of 'from' imports sorted.
PyDev - Python Development Environment for Eclipse
I've released version 0.1.8 of distlib on PyPI . For newcomers,
distlib is a library of packaging functionality which is intended
to be usable as the basis for third-party packaging tools.
The main changes in this release are as follows:
* Fixed issue #45: Improved thread-safety in SimpleScrapingLocator.
* Fixed issue #42: Handling of pre-release legacy version numbers
now mirrors setuptools logic.
* Added exists, verify, update, is_compatible and is_mountable methods
to the Wheel class (the update method fixed issue #41).
* Added a search method to the PackageIndex class.
* Fixed a bug in the Metadata.add_requirements method.
* Allowed versions with a single numeric component and a local version
component (tracking changes to PEP 440).* Corrected spelling of environment variable used for the stub launcher
on OS X.
* Avoided using pydist.json in 1.0 wheels (bdist_wheel writes a non-
* Improved computation of ABI tags on Python versions where SOABI is not
available, and improved computation of compatibility tags on OS X to
allow for multiple architectures and older OS X versions.
A more detailed change log is available at . Please try it out, and
if you find any problems or have any suggestions for improvements, please
give some feedback using the issue tracker! 
WHAT IS IT
Mail users, especially in non-English countries, often find that mail
messages arrived in different formats, with different content types, in
different encodings and charsets. Usually this is good because it allows us to
use appropriate format/encoding/whatever. Sometimes, though, some unification
is desirable. For example, one may want to put mail messages into an archive,
make HTML indices, run search indexer, etc. In such situations converting
messages to text in one character set and skipping some binary attachments is
Here is the solution - mimedecode.py.
This is a program to decode MIME messages. The program expects one input
file (either on command line or on stdin) which is treated as an RFC822
message, and decodes to stdout or an output file. If the file is not an RFC822
message it is just copied to the output one-to-one. If the file is a simple
RFC822 message it is decoded as one part. If it is a MIME message with multiple
parts ("attachments") all parts are decoded. Decoding can be controlled by
WHAT'S NEW in version 2.5.0 (2014-03-18)
Add option --set-header=header:value to set header's value (only at the top
Add option --set-param=header:param=value to set header parameter's value
(only at the top level). The header must exist.
Add option -B to skip content-transfer-decoding binary attachments.
Add options --save-headers, --save-body and --save-message to save decoded
headers/bodies/messages to files.
Add option -O to set the destination directory for output files.
Fix a minor bug: if a multipart message (or a subpart) lacks any textual
content - avoid putting an excessive newline.

Crochet is an MIT-licensed library that makes it easier for blocking or
threaded applications like Flask or Django to use the Twisted networking
framework. Crochet provides the following features:
* Runs Twisted's reactor in a thread it manages.
* The reactor shuts down automatically when the process' main thread
* Hooks up Twisted's log system to the Python standard library logging
framework. Unlike Twisted's built-in logging bridge, this includes
support for blocking Handler instances.
* A blocking API to eventual results (i.e. Deferred instances). This
last feature can be used separately, so Crochet is also useful for
normal Twisted applications that use threads.
