Stumbled On Python Libraries

I am making a list of libraries which I discover while reading blogs, mailing lists, etc. and feel can be useful.

1. Requests An inspiring library, already used in many small python scripts.

2. django-mediagenerator asset manager. Better are django-compressor and django-pipeline

3. Wappalyzer The blurb says “Wappalyzer is a browser extension that uncovers the technologies used on websites. It detects content management systems, web shops, web servers, JavaScript frameworks, analytics tools and many more.”


Nice reminder about how not to write code

In this article, Core Competency, Rob says

“When dealing with tasks completely outside your realm of knowledge expect to spend a lot of time researching, becoming familiar with the subject, and learning it slowly as opposed to copying and pasting the first code sample you see.”
