pyp – Python Power at the Prompt (The Pyed Piper)

March 17, 2012 Leave a comment

Pyp is a Linux command-line text manipulation tool similar to awk or sed, but which uses standard python string and list methods as well as custom functions evolved to generate fast results in an intense production environment. Pyed Pyper was developed at Sony Pictures Imageworks to facilitate the construction of complex image manipulation “one-liner” commands during visual effects work on Alice in Wonderland, Green Lantern, and the upcoming The Amazing Spiderman.” (source)

Installable via jabbatron.

This post is a reminder for me. As soon as I go through its documentation, I will write some notes about it.

Python for Unix and Linux System Administration

March 19, 2011 2 comments

I started to read the book Python for Unix and Linux System Administration by Noah Gift and Jeremy M. Jones (@ O’Reilly, @ Amazon). I’ve read just the first chapter so far, but it seems very interesting. If you look at the table of contents, you’ll find lots of interesting topics. I’m not a system administrator but I have to do similar tasks on my Linux machine almost every day. So I recommend this book to anyone who wants to get familiar with some advanced topics in Python.
