Power up your Python development
Why write custom functionality when a library can do it for you? Libraries are the best friends and life saviors of developers. In my opinion, a good project makes use of some of the best libraries available.
This article is a part of a series on the awesome libraries for Python in which I always compiled a list of 7 Python libraries that will help you in your development journey.
This one is from Google. Code formatter is one of the tools most developers used. This formatter is based on ‘clang-format’, developed by Daniel Jasper. In essence, the algorithm takes the code and reformats it to the best formatting that conforms to the style guide, even if the original code didn’t violate the style guide. It has more than 12.5k stars on GitHub.
As a developer, most of the time goes on debugging. This will help you with this. This is a full-featured web debugger based on a client-server architecture. It is responsible for managing debugging instances along with browser connections (through WebSockets) is based on Tornado. It is also compatible with multithread and multiprocess programs. It has more than 1.5k stars on GitHub.
Form validation is one of the tasks a developer has to do. This is a flexible forms validation and rendering library for Python web development. It can work with whatever web framework and template engine you choose. It supports data validation, CSRF protection, internationalization (I18N), and more. This library has more than 1k stars on GitHub.
This is a functional standard library for Python. It provides a set of utility functions for iterators, functions, and dictionaries. These functions interoperate well and form the building blocks of common data analytic operations. They extend the standard libraries itertools and functools and borrow heavily from the standard libraries of contemporary functional languages. This library has more than 4k stars on GitHub.
If you have to work with Geo data then this is a good resource for you. This is a client for several popular geocoding web services. It makes it easy for Python developers to locate the coordinates of addresses, cities, countries, and landmarks across the globe using third-party geocoders and other data sources. It includes geocoder classes for the OpenStreetMap Nominatim, Google Geocoding API (V3), and many other geocoding services. It has more than 3.5k stars on Github.
This library provides Python’s Filesystem abstraction layer. You can think of this library’s
FS objects as the next logical step to Python’s
file objects. In the same way that file objects abstract a single file, FS objects abstract an entire filesystem. It has more than 1.7k stars on GitHub.
As a developer sometimes we have to parse HTML. This library will help you with this task. It is designed to conform to the WHATWG HTML specification, as is implemented by all major web browsers.
That’s all for today. I believe these libraries will help you a lot in your development journey.
If you know of any other beautiful Python libraries, please share them in the comments. Until we meet again…Cheers!
