bag contains code for many purposes, which I find myself reusing in multiple programs – so this code must be version-controlled. I use SQLAlchemy and Pyramid a lot.
Documentation is at http://docs.nando.audio/bag/latest/
The code is at https://github.com/nandoflorestan/bag where you can do your bug reports and pull requests.
This version of bag was published with releaser.
Most important library contents
bag.spreadsheet – Import CSV and Excel spreadsheets based on headers on the first row. There is also a buffered CSV writer for outputting CSV in a web app.
bag.email_validator – The ultimate functions for email validation and domain validation, as well as an email address harvester.
bag.pathlib_complement – A Path subclass that does what pathlib doesn’t do.
bag.subcommand – Use argh to dispatch to subcommands with their command-line arguments.
bag.web.flash_msg has been removed in favor of a better module in the kerno library. It defines a rich class for UI messages to be stored in the HTTP session.
If you use the Pyramid web framework
bag.web.pyramid.angular_csrf – Make Pyramid play ball with AngularJS to achieve CSRF protection.

If you use SQLAlchemy
bag.sqlalchemy.context – Convenient SQLAlchemy initialization, at last.
bag.sqlalchemy.mediovaigel – Complete solution for database fixtures using SQLAlchemy.

delete_old_branches – Deletes git branches that have already been merged onto the current branch. Optionally, filter the branches by age (in days).
