funfactory is the what makes playdoh fun. You import it within a Django manage.py file and it sets up the playdoh environment and configures some settings. Any substantial part of playdoh's core should be contained within funfactory. However, it is not a collection of standalone apps. Check out the playdoh docs for a complete user guide.
To develop new features for playdoh core, you'll want to hack on funfactory! To run the test suite, first install tox then cd into the root dir and type the tox command. The tox.ini will handle the rest.
To try out cutting edge funfactory features in a real playdoh app, you can use the develop command to install a link to the files within your virtualenv:
workon the-playdoh-clone pushd ~/your/path/to/funfactory python setup.py develop popd
