Brian #1: Advent of Code 2018 Solutions
- Michael Fogleman
- Even if you didn’t have time or energy to do the 2018 AoC, you can learn from other peoples solutions. Here’s one set written up in a nice blog post.
Michael #2: Python Lands on the Windows 10 App Store
- Python Software Foundation recently released Python 3.7 as an app on the official Windows 10 app store.
- Python 3.7 is now available to install from the Microsoft Store, meaning you no longer need to manually download and install the app from the official Python website.
- there is one limitation. “Because of restrictions on Microsoft Store apps, Python scripts may not have full write access to shared locations such as TEMP and the registry.
- Discussed with Steve Dower over on Talk Python 191
- Florimond Manca
- Bocadillo - “A modern Python web framework filled with asynchronous salsa”
- ”maintaining an open source project is a marathon, not a sprint.”
- Tips at the end of the article include tips for the following topics, including recommendations and tool choices:
- Project definition
- Marketing & Communication
- Project management
- Code quality
- Versioning and releasing
Michael #4: Python maintainability score via Wily
- via Anthony Shaw
- A Python application for tracking, reporting on timing and complexity in tests
- Easiest way to calculate it is with wily https://github.com/tonybaloney/wily … the metrics are ‘maintainability.mi’ and ‘maintainability.rank’ for a numeric and the A-F scale.
- Build an index: wily build src
- Inspect report: wily report file
- Graph: wily graph file metric
- Awesome Python Security resources
- web framework hardening, ex: secure.py
- multi tools
- static code analysis, ex: bandit
- vulnerabilities and security advisories
- app templates
- lots of resources for learning
- Awesome Flake8 Extensions
Michael #6: fastlogging
- via Robert Young
- A faster replacement of the standard logging module with a mostly compatible API.
- For a single log file it is ~5x faster and for rotating log file ~13x faster.
- It comes with the following features:
- (colored, if
coloramais installed) logging to console
- logging to file (maximum file size with rotating/history feature can be configured)
- old log files can be compressed (the compression algorithm can be configured)
- count same successive messages within a 30s time frame and log only once the message with the counted value.
- log domains
- log to different files
- writing to log files is done in (per file) background threads, if configured
- configure callback function for custom detection of same successive log messages
- configure callback function for custom message formatter
- configure callback function for custom log writer
- (colored, if
>>> import antigravity
