This platform provides a Python based killboard backend supporting common tasks such as interfacing with the EVE API to fetch killmail logs, interact with EDK killboards to fetch killmails from them and parse manually logged killmails.

The database layer is generic thanks to SQL Alchemy so any dbms can be used. Static data and schemas for PostgreSQL and MySQL are provided. Aggregates exist along with code to maintain them to enable high speed reports for summarized data. A point calculation system is included as is support for parsing German and Russian kill mail text.

Caching exists in two forms, a basic in memory dict based caching system suitable for single process tasks and integration with uwsgi's powerful and fast built in cache.

Utility modules are provided for adding in killmails, backfilling killmails and dumping them via the command line. These also serve as reusable code for web apps or at least as usage examples.

A sample web app using pykb is included.
