Python VPython Lib for 3D modeling.

What is VPython?

VPython makes it easy to create navigable 3D displays and animations, even for those with limited programming experience.
Because it is based on Python, it also has much to offer for experienced programmers and researchers.

Full documentation for Classic VPython, including tutorials and reference materials. This documentation is included with VPython installers and is accessible from the Help menu in the VIDLE program editor. Here is full documentation for the older VPython 5.

YouTube videos by Ruth Chabay’s NCSU graduate students Shawn Weatherford and Jeff Polak to introduce VPython to new users.

Python System Administration Lib

System administration

PSUTIL

Cross-platform library for retrieving information on running processes and system utilization (CPU, memory, disks, network) in Python.

psutil (process and system utilities) is a cross-platform library for retrieving information on running processes and system utilization (CPU, memory, disks, network) in Python.
It is useful mainly for system monitoring, profiling and limiting process resources and management of running processes.
It implements many functionalities offered by command line tools such as:

  • ps
  • top
  • lsof
  • netstat
  • ifconfig
  • who
  • df
  • kill
  • free
  • nice
  • ionice
  • iostat
  • iotop
  • uptime
  • pidof
  • tty
  • taskset
  • pmap

It currently supports Linux, Windows, OSX, Sun Solaris, FreeBSD, OpenBSD and NetBSD, both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures, with Python versions from 2.6 to 3.5
This is a really cool library and allows to do a ton of things, « a must have » if you want to write some apps that are related to system administration.
