I am happy to announce the release Spyder 0.7.2 (beta). It can be freely

downloaded at:


Spyder is a Python-derived data modelling and conversion language.

Spyder extends Python with three Spyder-specific statements, which

are pre-processed ("compiled") to pure Python.

Spyder is designed to facilitate object creation, validation and conversion.

Any object can be parsed from a string or initialized from a list, dict or

any other suitable object.

Spyder includes a path-finding data conversion system. Conversion functions

between Spyder classes can be registered into this system. "A.convert(D)"

will execute a path of converter functions, for example A=>B=>C=>D.

Classes can use registered methods from any other class to which a

conversion path is possible. If the method spam() is unique to class D,

"A.spam()" will be equivalent to "A.convert(D).spam()".

Spyder can deal with complex data models, but also with a variety of

3D objects and with media files. It comes with several tutorials and an

expanding library of classes and converters. It has been interfaced to the

modelling program Blender.

Spyder is licensed as freeware.
