Starting An Application With Python

I am a very experienced web developer that has little experience with game servers and python. Im trying to start a game server hosting site for a game called Minecraft but I cant figure out how to start the server. I keep getting error codes and I dont know how to get around it.

The requirements of this job:

-Show me how to use python to start a game server (a jar file).
-Show me how to capture the process pid so I can terminate the server. I dont want to start it and have it get lost forever in the processes eating up my cpu.
-Show me how I can use python to record the information. I dont know the best way to do this but Im thinking it needs to be recorded to a mysql db.

To be perfectly honest I dont even know if this will work on my server. Ive written a simple python file that executes the server on my own computer but the same setup does not work for my server (paid hosting). So Im not sure if my server is blocking me from running the application. If someone can tell me this before they start that would be great. Id rather not pay someone to tell me- "oh yah, this aint going to work. 30 bucks prease!!".

Oh! And if youre Indian or Pakistani or what-have-you, do NOT just post some stupid s*** like- "Lets do it…" and expect me to even consider you. Not that your background has anything to do with it, I just see this ALL THE TIME from these two countries. You must be able to speak english and explain this to me (I love to learn). Im sick of seeing your bids…. really.

Budget: $30 – cmon this is easy!

Python Interface To Amazon Product API

I need a scalable solution that will enable me to retrieve large quantities of amazon product information, for my soon-to-be product comparison site.

For each of over 100,000 products, (preferably in batch) I will need this program to use an amazon api to retrieve product information such as price, comments, quality (Open-box, new etc), whether its from amazon or a reseller, quantity, and a few other key items.

+Use of an amazon api and not simply webscraping
+Done efficiently and scaleably, so the 100k items can be updated in as little time as possible
+Python coding strongly prefered
+If there are Amazon-set throttle limits, these need to be clearly stated.

Python Driven Web Page – HTML And Backend DB Complete

I need a simple web page built, but I already have the domain and HTML for the page. The data is already available in a MySQL table too. Mainly, I need the MySQL data to populate the dynamic fields within the page layout and publish/create a new URL for that page. I believe this requires CGI or WSGI, but am note sure. Preferably this can be done in Python. Requirements:

– Need to dynamically create up to 10K pages a day. The pages will be created based on user requests which are being fed into the database at up to 10K volumes/day.
– The domain is purchased, but contractor will need to set it up on existing my EC2 instance (ideally media temple)
– Deploy your code on EC2
– Must complete in 2 weeks
– Must meet twice weekly via Skype
– No less than 36 hour response time throughout duration of project

I will also pay bonus for the following features:
– The data that is loaded in MySQL is from python scripts that I already have, BUT since it is timely information being displayed, it would be great to create a python process to rerun the scripts to update the database data when any user loads the URL. Perhaps this is a pylon web service, but Im not sure.

PM if you need more info. Thanks

BOXEE Application Developer – Python

Looking for an experienced developer for a BOXEE application. ( We say experienced because we do not have the time to teach you about media, media streaming, etc.

The application itself will get ALL its data from our webservice in a simple XML format. This is already running on various other devices, so the API is solid.

If your familiar with BOXEE, then you know this will be a few days development in laying out the screens, the lists, etc.

All code is done in XML files and PYTHON.

If you have a ROKU device, the task is much easier to complete, as we can give you access to our ROKU channel which uses the same API.

Need To Finish A Simple 3d Game With Python/Panda3d

Im developing a very simple 3d game in Python using Panda3d (a free game engine).

The game is about moving some parts (6 in total) in order to put them together and show a message when they are correctly assembled. What needs to be done is to add collisions, simple physics (they are already implemented in Panda3d) and determining if the objects are correctly positioned.

Currently I have all the models, the program loads them, and Im able to move them with the keyboard. I also have the lights and camera correctly configured.

Install Paymentech Payment Module In OSCommerce Python Cart

I am having difficulty installing the Paymentech Payment module in my Python Cart (OsCommerce) store platform. Paymentech uses the Authorizenet Sim modules and redirects them to the Paymentech Gateway.

Paymentech only provided a module that loads into the includes/payments folder. They have not supplied any modules that would be installed in the includes/languages/payments folder or the includes/classes folder.

My version of the Python Cart did not come with the Authorizenet Sim payment modules installed.

The project would entail finding and loading the correct payment modules and making any changes that would enable the provided Paymentech module to work correctly. Paymentech resources would be available for consult and testing.

Any new modules added to my libraries or any changes would need to be provided and documented, as I need to make the same changes to 5 other Python Cart stores.

Optimization Of Python Script

Hi, Im looking for a python programmer to help optimise a script, which parses text content from visited websites and substitutes specific data with new data achieved from a MySQL database. It is a relatively small project: I already have a working script in python, however as Im not a professional programmer it needs some adjustment in order to work well.

The script takes all text-content of a visited website. Compares the words with a dictionary and replaces all words which are on the site and in the dictionary. The dictionary is very large and based on a MySQL-database. I tried different solutions (fx BeautifulSoup) for web-parsing, but as the script have to be extremely solid and work on any kind of website I ended up running into troubles. Eventually Ive based the script on a rather old parser However, Im aware that the whole script is very linear (and thus time consuming) and that one might be better off with for instance using a prefix tree (trie) instead. In the end the script must be implemented in Squid.

Timeframe: as soon as possible

Skills: Python (if you also have experience with Squid it would be great! 🙂
