[AstroPy] iraf-like library?

Hello all, 

I'm a newbie and I'm trying to do some photometry in python without getting into iraf.
Probably this has been asked many times, but I couldn't find an answer.
Is there any equivalent python library that works like iraf? I don't mean pyraf because 
that would require installing iraf am I right?

I plan to build some pipeline in python and I would like to make it iraf-independent.
I particularly would like to do stuff like daophot and also any tool that can find individual 
sources on an image (or at least count them). 

Thanks in advance,
