New releases of Hovercraft!, svg.path, pyroma, tzlocal, spiny and skynet.

March 1, 2016
  • Hovercraft! is a tool to make Prezi-style presentations from human-readable text files. Version 2.1 fixes a bunch of bugs, drops Python 3.2 support and adds support for having multiple css-files.
  • svg.path is a collection of objects that implement the different path commands in SVG, and a parser for SVG path definitions. 2.1.1 adds an error-parameter to many functions so you can specify the amount of error you need in calculations, where a higher error means faster calculations.
  • Pyroma tests your Python-project’s packaging friendliness. 2.0.0 changes how data is extracted from, and now works with pbr and other tools that extends distutils to store the metadata outside
  • tzlocal returns a tzonfo oject with the local timezone information. 1.2.1 is a bugfix release.
  • Spiny tests your package under multiple Python versions, like tox, but I like it better. If you can run your tests with “ test” and you have specified supported versions as package classifiers, you don’t need any project configuration. Version 0.5 is the first release that is usable, really.
  • Skynet is a module that doesn’t want to die. It’s purpose is to demonstrate Python’s exit hooks and signal handling.
