These docs were meant to go away with beta, but since we haven't made official 2.0 docs yet, they're still around and (hopefully) have been updated to be current.

django-peeringdb is a Django library with a local PeeringDB database sync. It defines the database schema to create a local database copy. The library is easy to integrate into a common framework for local tools and custom interfaces, and also supports multiple database engines (MySQL, Postgres, SQLite).
peeringdb-py is a Python client for PeeringDB. It features functions to get objects and display them in JSON or YAML format, and provides a whois-like display of records. The client also has an integrated local database sync, and provides a Python library for integration with custom tools. Some examples are available too.
Pinder is a tool that facilitates peering. If peering is desired between two networks, and you're happy to just configure sessions without a commercial agreement, Pinder acts as the middle man. You can submit the request via either a basic web UI or an API, and the other network is notified or can periodically check their outstanding requests. If both network agree to peer, they are notified to configure a session. Once both networks indicate that sessions are configured and established, the request is then deleted. A brief slide deck explains the functionality in more detail.
