  • I am a proficient Python coder whose learning has plateaued. Any really useful libraries I should look into learning? Taking recommendations.

    And here are some libraries that might pique your interest although they don't strictly answer your question: - tqdm for adding a progress bar on for loops (it comes with useful information like iteration per second and estimated time needed to finish) - alive_progress adds a progress bar like tqdm, but it works even with generators and while loops which I don't think tqdm does. -timebudget, with just a decorator as soon as a function is completed it prints the time taken to execute it - send2trash for sending files to the trash bin instead of permanently deleting them - keyboard for sending keyboard inputs or check if a key is pressed - mouse same as keyboard but with mouse buttons - textract for extracting text from many types of file with a single interface. It supports documents, powerpoint presentations, csv, excels, images, gifs, audio, and many more
  • A new kind of Progress Bar for Python

    Humm unfortunately not yet. I didn't figure yet how to render multiple bars at the same time, with possibly very different update speeds, while still making the print hook work... There's more info here: https://github.com/rsalmei/alive-progress/issues/20#issuecomment-605832026

    In the soon-to-be-released 2.0, there's a new support for *compiled animations*! They are generated up-front, and then just switch frames, which should have a negligible overhead! You can see it here: https://github.com/rsalmei/alive-progress/pull/51

    I still have to write about all the 2.0 features, the largest release I'll ever do... 😅 => https://github.com/rsalmei/alive-progress/pull/51

    Oh, I have much more images of the new `check()` tool in this thread: https://github.com/rsalmei/alive-progress/issues/19
