Gizmod is a utility for enabling alternative input devices to be used in Linux. This includes such devices as the PowerMate USB dial, fancy keyboards and mice with buttons not recognized or supported by X. Gizmod allows per application event mappings.
Inspired by popular GlovePIE, WiiPIE is a Wiimote-based Programmable Input Environment that connects Wiimote to multiple platforms and provides gesture recognition functionality (by sending virtual keyboard/mouse events).
Note: The project has moved to https://github.com/pyhys/minimalmodbus The files available here are very old, download from Github instead. MinimalModbus is an easy-to-use Python module for talking to instruments (slaves) from a computer (master) using the Modbus protocol, and is intended to be running on the master. Example code includes drivers for Eurotherm and Omega process controllers. The only dependence is the pySerial module (also pure Python). This software supports the ‘Modbus RTU’ and ‘Modbus ASCII’ serial communication versions of the protocol, and is intended for use on Linux, OS X and Windows platforms.
