The EnthoughtBase project used to include a few core packages that are used by many other projects in the Enthought Tool Suite:
- etsconfig: Supports configuring settings that need to be shared across multiple projects or programs on the same system. Most significant of these is the GUI toolkit to be used. You can also configure locations for writing application data and user data, and the name of the company responsible for the software (which is used in the application and user data paths on some systems).
- logger: Provides convenience functions for creating logging handlers.
- util: Provides miscellaneous utility functions.
These functionalities have now been moved into other projects: 'etsconfig' is now part of traits, 'logger' is now part of apptools and 'util' is now part of pyface, and other packages. The etsproxy project allows you to run code that relied on this package or to convert source code to the new namespace with the 3to4 utility.
