Open source project I've worked on
- pyRserve – http://pypi.python.org/pypi/pyRserve/
This project has been published in early 2010.
pyRerve is a library for connecting Python to an R process (an
excellent statistic package) running under Rserve. Through
such a connection variables can be get and set in R from Python, and also R-functions can be called remotely. In contrast to rpy or rpy2 the R process does not have to run on the same machine, it can run on a
remote machine and all variable access and function calls will be delegated there.
Python interface for sane (scanner interface)
Some code contributions, project has been incorporated into Python Imaging Library (PIL).
