AppTools

The Enthought Tool Suite includes a set of packages that we have found useful in creating a number of applications. They implement functionality that is commonly needed by many applications. These packages are distributed together as the AppTools project:

  • enthought.appscripting — Framework for scripting of applications.
  • enthought.help — Provides a plugin for displaying documents and examples and running demos in Envisage Workbench applications.
  • enthought.io — Provides an abstraction for files and folders in a file system.
  • enthought.naming — Manages naming contexts, supporting non-string data types and scoped preferences.
  • enthought.permissions — Supports limiting access to parts of an application unless the user is appropriately authorised (not full-blown security).
  • enthought.persistence — Supports pickling the state of a Python object to a dictionary, which can then be flexibly applied in restoring the state of the object.
  • enthought.preferences — Manages application preferences.
  • enthought.resource — Manages application resources such as images and sounds.
  • enthought.scripting — A framework for automatic recording of Python scripts.
  • enthought.sweet_pickle — Handles class-level versioning, to support loading of saved data that exist over several generations of internal class structures.
  • enthought.template — Supports creating templatizable object hierarchies.
  • enthought.type_manager — Manages type extensions, including factories to generate adapters, and hooks for methods and functions.
  • enthought.undo — Supports undoing and scripting application commands.
