Basics - Rye

Link: Basics - Rye: "An Experimental Package Management Solution for Python"

See attached info about RYE. Ok so I complain that python has so many different package managers, virtual environment mechanisms, dependency managers, and so on. Much to my chagrin, I recently read something saying, “whatever you do, don’t use poetry”.

Rye But, but, but… rye looks really nice from the linked description. I’m just a little hesitant to lock myself to rye and find myself in 6 months having to do something totally different.

By the way I happen to be a happy user of rbenv (@ Ruby environment manager) so my default is pyenv, which works the same way exactly. Not sure if they are from the same person, but they are basically identical.

Satyrn

Attached is a link to a macOS app Ui for Jupyter notebook. Looking at the screen shots (maybe they’re mockups, I can’t tell) it looks super useful and nice!

The Writebook Manual

Link: The Writebook Manual: "A new way to publish a book to the web"

Attached is an elegant new product (at least its prerelease documentation) to “publish a book” to the web. I believe it will be a single license software product that you get to deploy to a server, including a cloud server. There are of course numerous ways of doing this but 37signals.com’s stuff is always excellent and beautiful.

PySimpleGUI – An Intro to Laying Out Elements

Link: PySimpleGUI – An Intro to Laying Out Elements: "PySimpleGUI is a Python GUI that wraps other Python GUI toolkits (Tkinter, PySide, wxPython). By abstracting away the complexities of the other GUIs into a common API, you can quickly write code that can be rendered using any of those other toolkits just by changing the import at the top of your program."

Linked is a package for creating user interfaces with Python. This is just a reminder to myself that it exists. It looks useful.
