A collection of Python utilities for Mac OS X system administration.
The PyMacAdmin project started as a collaboration between Chris Adams and Nigel Kersten to develop a replacement for the unsupported 'kicker' feature included in OS X prior to 10.5. That replacement eventually became crankd, which provides a way to execute Python code or a shell script in response to many system events: network changes, filesystem activity, application launching, etc.
A second major features is the disk image unit testing framework designed to test OS X installation images before deployment.
We've also added utilities to create network locations, manage proxy settings or update AirPort passwords using our Keychain wrapper.
