Python Projects

  • fatoptimizer: static optimizer for Python 3.6 using function specialization with guards. It is implemented as an AST optimizer. It is part of the FAT Python project.
  • bytecode: API to modify Python bytecode, and a peephole optimizer.
  • pyfailmalloc: Debug tool for Python injecting memory allocation faults to simulate a low memory system to test how your application handles MemoryError exceptions.
  • sixer: add Python 3 support to Python 2 applications using the six module.
  • Hachoir: Python library that allows to view and edit a binary stream field by field. In other words, Hachoir allows you to “browse” any binary stream just like you browse directories and files. A file is split in a tree of fields, where the smallest field is just one bit.
