Nick’s Python Toolchest

Note: The most up to date version of the documentation you are reading resides at the project’s website on SourceForge.

Nxpy is an etherogeneous collection of useful modules, dealing with diverse topics such as wrapping complex commands with API’s or interacting with Java and .NET build systems. There are also more basic utilities, such as automation of backup files, support for writing your own file-like objects and many other things.

The library is being developed with Python 3.4 so as to be compatible with Python 2.7. Most modules should work also with 2.6, 3.2 and 3.5. Some still work with 2.5.


Nxpy is a personal project and, while I use a good part of its contents on an almost daily basis, my use cases are too specific to guarantee that everything works as expected.
