This time I'm going to show you how to create simple GUI applications in Python using a package called Gooey. It lets you turn (almost) any command line Python application into a GUI application with one line.
You want to be a Python backend developer but have no idea what you should learn? Choosing what to focus on can be difficult. In this blog post I hope to help you by discussing different types of backends and the technologies that you could use to build them.
Building URLs is really common in applications and APIs because most of the applications tend to be pretty interconnected. But how should we do it in Python? Here's my take on the subject.
It is quite easy to recommend your most popular posts to your readers if you are running a WordPress site. What if you are using a static site generator such as Hugo instead? On this post you'll learn how to add a popular posts section by using data from Google Analytics, and how to automate the whole process.
The Python syntax doesn't have the switch-case statement. So what is the equivalent in Python? That's what we'll talk about in this post.
Nowadays Docker containers seem to be all around us. With the rise of Kubernetes they are now even more relevant in businesses that choose to run their processes in public or private clouds.
Another trending thing in the development world is Python which is especially huge in the machine learning field. In this post I'll show you how to containerize your Python application in just a few minutes.
Environment variables are key-value pairs that are defined in your shell environment outside of the Python executable. You can access them in Python with the
os.environ mapping object.
Environment variables are really useful for passing secret information or other configurations that you don't want to pass as command line arguments. A good use case for example is a containerized application running in Docker or Kubernetes where you can configure the application using environment variables.
You might have stumbled on the Ellipsis object (…) in Python and wondered what it is used for. It was originally introduced to be used in the Numeric Python package for matrix slicing but nothing stops you from using it for other purposes too.
When you think of GNU Make what is the first thing that pops up to your mind? Perhaps you remember building C or C++ programs from source and automatically associate it with languages where you need to build the code before being able to run anything.
However, Make can be a really powerful tool for your other projects too. In this article I'll show you some examples on how to utilize Make for Python development. I'll be using the Flask web framework for demonstration purposes but these principles can be really adapted to any other project.
