Docutils: Documentation Utilities: "ZReST, by Richard Jones, is a 'ReStructuredText Document for Zope' application that is complete and ready to install.
PySource, by Tony Ibbs, is an experimental Python source Reader. In some form, it will soon become part of core Docutils. There is some related code in David Goodger's sandbox (pysource_reader) and a Python Source Reader document.
Docutils interface to PythonPoint, also by Richard Jones, produces PDF presentations using ReportLabs.
Engelbert Gruber has begun LaTeX Writer and ManPage Writer components.
? has taken over ReportLabs/PDF Writer components.
Oliver Rutherfurd has begun a DocBook Writer component and HT2HTML integration component.
Gunnar Schwant's DocFactory is a wxPython GUI application for Docutils.
Aahz has begun an Writer.
Ian Bicking is working on code for a Wiki.
Bill Bumgarner has written a simple HTML writer that doesn't rely on CSS (stylesheets).
Beni Cherniavsky has written a generic preprocessing module for roles and/or directives and built preprocessors for TeX math for both LaTeX and HTML output on top of it.
Beni Cherniavsky maintains a Makefile for driving Docutils, hoping to handle everything one might do with docutils. "
Psyco - Introduction: "In short: run your existing Python software much faster, with no change in your source.
Think of Psyco as a kind of just-in-time (JIT) compiler, a little bit like Java's, that emit machine code on the fly instead of interpreting your Python program step by step. The difference is that Psyco writes several version of the same blocks (a block is a bit of a function), which are optimized by being specialized to some kinds of variables (a 'kind' can mean a type, but it is more general). The result is that your unmodified Python programs run faster.
2x to 100x speed-ups, typically 4x, with an unmodified Python interpreter and unmodified source code, just a dynamically loadable C extension module.
Psyco currently uses a lot of memory. It only runs on Intel 386-compatible processors (under any OS) right now. There are some subtle semantic differences (i.e. bugs) with the way Python works; they should not be apparent in most programs."
pyparsing -- a class library for text processing in Python: "Here is a complete 'Hello, World!' program, using the pyparsing module:
from pyparsing import Word, alphas, oneOf
greet = Word( alphas ) + ',' + Word( alphas ) + oneOf('! ? .')
hello = 'Hello, World!'
print hello, '->', greet.parseString( hello )

This program results in:
Hello, World! -> ['Hello', ',', 'World', '!']"
PLY (Python Lex-Yacc): "PLY (Python Lex-Yacc)
Welcome to the PLY homepage. PLY is yet another implementation of lex and yacc for Python. Although several other parsing tools are available for Python, there are several reasons why you might want to take a look at PLY: "
Tkinter Documentation: "Tkinter Documentation
At the moment, there is no complete reference documentation on Tkinter, but one substantial book is available. The following all form pieces of the puzzle. "
Additional Tkinter Widgets: "Additional Widget Collections
If you're looking for a richer set of widgets than provided by Tk, you have a number of options that extend the Tk widget set. These are all compatible with Tkinter (in fact, they require Tkinter)."

Grouch: "Grouch is a system for describing and enforcing a Python object schema. An object schema describes every class in a collection of objects -- in particular, it specifies the type of every instance attribute of every class. Grouch includes a type language for specifying attribute types, a tool to parse specially-formatted class docstrings and output a complete object schema, and another tool for walking a persistent object graph and ensuring that every scrap of data in it conforms to the object schema extracted from your class docstrings. The API for defining, querying, and enforcing types is fairly complete and well-documented, so you can use Grouch's type system in other ways as well. "

Pyui Home Page: "PyUI is a user interface library written entirely in the high-level language python. It has a modular implementation that allows the drawing and event input to be performed by pluggable "renderers". This makes PyUI very portable and scalable. It can run in environments from hardware accelerated 3D surfaces to regular desktop windows. PyUI was originally targeted as a User Interface for games, but it has evolved into a more general UI toolkit with applicability outside of games.

The goal of pyui is that is be very simple to use and that the implementation be kept as simple as possible. Some lessons learned from Extreme Programming are being applied to the development process. The current state of PyUI is no longer exactly simple as it evolves towards being a fully features GUI toolkit, but the development methodology has been successful in keeping the code stable and usable throughout its life so far."
