New Ports of the Week #52 (December 23)

Contributed by merdely on from the auld-lang-syne dept.

There are 5 new ports for this last week of 2007 (December 23 to December 29):
databases/py-storm, net/dysnomia, textproc/libical, www/py-clientform, www/ruby-activeresource

Thanks to all of the porters hard work this year!

Ports are listed in the order they were committed to the tree:

  • www/py-clientform
    • ClientForm is a Python module for handling HTML forms on the client side, useful for parsing HTML forms, filling them in and returning the completed forms to the server. It developed from a port of Gisle Aas' Perl module HTML::Form, from the libwww-perl library, but the interface is not the same.
  • databases/py-storm
    • Storm is a fast object-relational mapper (ORM) for Python and used in Canonical's Launchpad project. Storm is developed in a test-driven manner, provides small and clean public APIs and works with everything from SQLite to PostgreSQL and MySQL.
  • net/dysnomia
    • Dysnomia is a program that shows the possibility to download songs from on-demand music websites (only the website in the 0.3.1 version). It's only a proof of concept of that possibility, and it's main interest is in it's code and how it works, not in using it to download songs on these websites.
  • www/ruby-activeresource
    • Active Resource (ARes) connects business objects and Representational State Transfer (REST) web services. It implements object-relational mapping for REST webservices to provide transparent proxying capabilities between a client (ActiveResource) and a RESTful service (which is provided by Simply RESTful routing in ActionController::Resources).
  • textproc/libical
    • libical is an Open Source (MPL/LGPL) implementation of the IETF's iCalendar Calendaring and Scheduling protocols. (RFC 2445, 2446, and 2447). It parses iCal components and provides a C API for manipulating the component properties, parameters, and subcomponents.
