CodeZoo Adds Python and Ruby Components
Portland, OR--At the O'Reilly Open Source Conference (OSCON) today,
CodeZoo announced that it has added Python and Ruby code to its repository
of open source components.
"We collected and reviewed all the open source components that have been
released for both Python and Ruby," said CodeZoo manager Marc Hedlund,
O'Reilly entrepreneur in residence. "Every component we've chosen for
the site is mature, stable, easy-to-use, and useful."
Guido von Rossum, creator of Python, said, "Python developers have a
well-deserved reputation for creating and using code efficiently. The new
CodeZoo Python repository gives them a powerful new tool to speed up
their development process."
David Heinemeier Hansson, creator of Ruby on Rails, said, "Ruby's wealth
of libraries and frameworks can't help the influx of programmers coming to
the language of late if they don't know what's out there. CodeZoo helps
shine light of all these great components and helps programmers reuse more
and recode less."
CodeZoo makes it easy for developers to find high-quality, open source
code, and get up to speed with that code quickly. Not just a site for open
source developers, CodeZoo focuses on the needs of all developers who want
to use open source code in their own projects--internal, commercial, or
CodeZoo also debuted several new features at OSCON:
* MyLibrary, where users can keep track of code components via RSS feeds
that update their custom code library.
* User-generated tags that allow users to create their own descriptions of
* A customized search engine that allows users to search within a specific
language, by license type, by number of downloads, rating, etc.
