    Project mention: [D] Software stack to replicate Azure ML / Google Auto ML on premise | | 2021-02-03

    Project mention: Are you seeing more Python than Go? | | 2020-12-26

    For complex projects with a not well defined scope (or very open one) python is easier to extend. Imagine a ifttt tool in python (StackStorm) and other in golang (beehive). This is an apple vs pears example, I know. Golang code is monolithic and python ones is plugable (developing plugins,

  • GitHub repo Healthchecks

  • GitHub repo autoscraper

    A Smart, Automatic, Fast and Lightweight Web Scraper for Python

    Project mention: Do I really need to customize a scaper for every input page URL? | | 2021-01-04

    Maybe you could try out this tool never used it myself Or you would need to train a neural network which does the parsing for you but the accuracy won't be 100% with this method To answer your question there is no way to write one program which scrapes different pages correctly because their structure is not the same and some of them probably will have protection which will block your scraper so that would need extra attention or additional code

    Project mention: A (non intelligent) chatbot multi-interface and distributed as a personal information manager. | | 2021-02-03

    Some limitations: if I'm on the tramway I'd like to send a Telegram message to my bot, but when I'm on a terminal, maybe I'd prefer to interact using IRC or Slack, if I'm in front of my desktop. Six years ago somebody asked about this in the Google+ group (now disappeared) and later somebody asked for this in the GitHub issues forum Support multiple backends in one instance #1137. But no advances on this matter appeared.

    Project mention: Pandas, xlwings and timestamps | | 2020-12-22

    No problem, my first guess would be some weird conversion issue or how the dates are stored and then converted, this issue says that you need to have a datetime object for proper conversion, maybe that's the problem?

  • GitHub repo AutoKey

    AutoKey, a desktop automation utility for Linux and X11.

    Project mention: Show HN: Espanso: detect a typed keyword and replace it while you're typing | | 2021-02-03

    Bit of a plug, but if you crave for that, and more, you can use AutoKey on Linux (not AutoHotKey which is Windows only):

    It will let you bind custom Python scripts to any mouse/keyboard sequence, including words on the fly. It can trigger word replacements just like Espanso (I use it to fill in emails, dates, addresses, timestamps et phone numbers), and of course, Python being Python, it lets you do a lot more.

    The UI is probably not as good as Espanso's, and it may be harder to use (you need to script). On the other hand, it provides an API for prompting you with UI to select dates, files, input, etc., has timers and the whole Python 3 stdlib.

    Some nice stuff I do with it:

    - typing $email/$ phone present me with a list of email addresses/phone num (I have a lot of them) to insert one. Prevents typo. By pass web form limitations.

    - $now and $date does something similar with dates (listing of various formats for the current date and a calendar). Very handy for documents and file name. Most of them don't have automated fields set up.

    - $paste paste the clip board content, by passing any UI preventing me to do so, and screen/tmux limitations.

    - I'm a heavy dynalist users ( I love this software, but it lacks a lot of features, which are easy to add with AutoKey: just make a macro that inputs a serie of actions.
