ColanderAlchemy helps you autogenerating Colander schemas based on SQLAlchemy mapped classes. 

ColanderAlchemy 0.1.0 alpha stage is out!

We use a lot of Open Source Softwares at Asidev and we must thank the communities and developers to give us great libraries and softwares.

We have contributed to various Open Source Projects by sending back patches, bug fixes and pull requests. Unfortunately, we think it is not enough…

For that reason we started to give back to the OSS community libraries and tools that help us every day.

The first library we released is ColanderAlchemy: it is an extensible package for autogeneration of Colander schemas that are based on SQLAlchemy mapped classes.

ColanderAlchemy is released under MIT license terms and it can be forked on GitHub:

You can find examples on how it works in the ColanderAlchemy’s official documentation on Read The Docs.

You can simply install ColanderAlchemy using PIP:

pip install ColanderAlchemy

or using SetupTools/Distribute:

easy_install ColanderAlchemy

The library is in alpha stage, but it works. We are working on test suite and docs.
Any help is appreciate :) 

We hope to release many other packages and libraries in the next months.
Stay tuned!

audio.js is a drop-in javascript library that allows HTML5’s <audio> tag to be used anywhere.

It uses native <audio> where available and an invisible flash player to emulate <audio> for other browsers. It provides a consistent html player UI to all browsers which can be styled used standard css.

Believe it… great things happen!

Nowadays it is really hard to stay and work in Italy.
