Hookah: A Swiss Army knife for data pipelines

Hookah lets you pipe data between different stream types.

Check it out on Github:

Some CLI examples:
Pipe from stdin to a new TCP server on port 8080:
hookah -o tcp-server://localhost:8080
Pipe from an existing TCP server on port 8080 to a new HTTP server on port 8081:
hookah -i tcp://localhost:8080 -o http-server://localhost:8081
Pipe from a new Unix domain socket listener to stdout:
hookah -i unix-server://path/to/sock
Pipe from a new HTTP server on port 8080 to an existing Unix domain socket:
hookah -i http-server://localhost:8080 -o unix://path/to/sock

Procedural music with PyAudio and NumPy

Combining two of my favorite pastimes, programming and music... This is the hacky "reduced to it's basic components" version of a library I've been working on for generating music and dealing with music theory.

Tweaking the harmonics by changing the shape of the harmonic components and ratios can produce some interesting sounds. This one only uses sine waveforms, but a square / saw generator is trivial with numpy.

It takes a second to generate, so don't turn your volume up too loud in anticipation (it may be loud).

NOTES = ['c','c#','d','d#','e','f','f#','g','g#','a','a#','b']

self.octave = octave

self.index = note
self.note = Note.NOTES[note]

Write a Feed Reader in Python

I just started a new video tutorial series. This time it'll cover the entire process of writing an RSS feed reader in Python from start to finish using the feedparser module, flask, and SQLAlchemy. Expect to see about 3-4 new videos a week until this thing is finished!
