The AppTools project includes a set of packages that Enthought has found useful in creating a number of applications. They implement functionality that is commonly needed by many applications
- enthought.appscripting: Framework for scripting applications.
- enthought.help: Provides a plugin for displaying documents and examples and running demos in Envisage Workbench applications.
- enthought.io: Provides an abstraction for files and folders in a file system.
- enthought.naming: Manages naming contexts, supporting non-string data types and scoped preferences.
- enthought.permissions: Supports limiting access to parts of an application unless the user is appropriately authorised (not full-blown security).
- enthought.persistence: Supports pickling the state of a Python object to a dictionary, which can then be flexibly applied in restoring the state of the object.

- enthought.resource: Manages application resources such as images and sounds.
- enthought.scripting: A framework for automatic recording of Python scripts.
- enthought.sweet_pickle: Handles class-level versioning, to support loading of saved data that exist over several generations of internal class structures.
