- Name: gdata-python-client
Descr: Google Data APIs Python Client Library
I've not done much work with automating my usage of Google's Data services yet and hope that I can be more productive by using this library. Specifically I want to start integrating some of their API stuff into a django administration interface that I have for a network of affiliate sites that I run.
- Name: android-scripting
Descr: Scripting Layer for Android brings scripting languages to Android
Yesterday I went down to Fry's Electronics and was checking out an Android Tablet they had for $139. I'm seriously thinking about getting one and developing some tools for mobile security auditors and for programmers/sysadmins. Even though I'm a huge Apple fan I think that Android will win out over iOS in the long run.
- Name: volatility
Descr: An advanced memory forensics framework
Not sure quite what I'll be doing with this but it caught my eye. Hacking around at a low level in memory always brightens my day.
- Name: damnvid
Descr: DamnVid, a video downloader/converter that sucks less.
This seems useful for one of the django sites that I'm working on that needs to be able to download from YouTube.
- Name: python-twitter
Descr: A python wrapper around the Twitter API
Everyone's using Twitter and I don't even have an account yet. I hope to use this to find ways to integrate it into my daily sysadmin tasks and maybe even dream up some killer apps using the API.
