Repository of non-standard modules for python

0 votes

I am to start a new free-time project in the next couple of weeks. I am ready to use open accessible Python modules not wanting to reinvent the wheel :-)

Is there any repository where I can find Python modules not being part of the standard distribution? I have some hits by Google but that seems to be far from complete.

Check out the Python Package Index:

Lots of stuff there, not all of it actively developed.

Can python sockets be used to capture IP traffic when the traffic is originating from a non-python source?

Using a Lantronix UDS-1100 serial to IP converter. The goal is to write a small proof of concept piece in Python to capture serial data output by this device over IP.

I've done a couple test projects using sockets in python, but they were all done between python processes (python > python): listen() on one end, and connect(), sendall() etc on the other.

I think I can use sockets for this project, but before I invest a bunch of time into it, wanted to make sure it is a viable solution.

Can python sockets be used to capture IP traffic when the traffic is originating from a non-python source? I have full control over the IP and port that the device sends the serial data to, but there will be no python connect() initiated by the client. I can pre-pend then serial data with some connect() string if needed.

If sockets won't work, please recommend another solution...guessing it will be REST or similar.

Iam on python 2.7 and linux .I need to know if we need to place the modules in a particular or it doesn't matter at all while writing the program.

For Example

import os
import shlex
import subprocess
import time
import sys
import logging
import plaftform.cluster
from util import run

def main():
 """ ---MAIN--- """

if __name__ == '__main__':

In the above example :

I am guessing may be the python modules like os , shlex etc come first and later the user defined modules like import plaftform.cluster etc

Sorry if my question sounds dump , I was running pep8 and don't see its bothered much about it

I have started looking into distutils because I need to write an extension module in C (for performance reasons) and distutils seems to be the most straight-forward way.

I have had success building a C file into a Python extension module using "python build" but I am wondering what the recommended way for using that module during development is. While writing Python code I am used to just run the code from the source directory. But the built extension modules .so of course does not just end up on sys.path magically.

So how do I run my code so it will find the built extension module? Do I pass the output directory on the command line manually or is there some other solution? I would like to still be able to run the code from the source directory as I am using PyCharm to edit and debug the code.

Attempting to import modules from Shogun to python from a non-standard python directory i.e. from my /home/xxx directory. Is there a way on ubuntu to selectively some modules, scripts, data from one directory and others modules, scripts from another directory. In other words, is there a file(s) that provide pointers to where these modules are located.

On building Python 2.7.5 I got the following message:

Python build finished, but the necessary bits to build these modules were not found:
dl imageop linuxaudiodev 
spwd sunaudiodev 
To find the necessary bits, look in in detect_modules()  for the module's name.

It carried on with the installation OK, but I don't understand the last sentence in the message. How can I find out exactly what modules are missing, and what I need to do to make sure they are built next time?
