Note that some significant functionality is lacking. Namely, the homspaces are not actually modules over the base ring. It will be necessary to enrich some of the structure of chain complexes for this to be naturally available. On other hand, there are various overloaded operators. __mul__ acts as composition. One can __add__, and one can __mul__ with a ring element on the right.
