  • GitHub repo Prefect

    The easiest way to automate your data

    Project mention: Hi, how can I do pipeline automation? | | 2021-04-18

    If you are just starting out or new to doing automation, I would look at just python scripts executed with CRON if on Linux/Mac or Windows Task Scheduler if on Windows. But you'll need bash (Linux/Mac) knowledge or DOS/batch knowledge (Windows). Then graduate to using frameworks. Since you didnt specify what types of jobs you want to automate, for general purpose needs, I would look at a class of frameworks called task orchestration frameworks or workflow management libraries. I would highly recommend dagster as it comes with a native scheduler so you would be free from having to use CRON or Windows Task Scheduler. Other options include prefect, but if you want its other features like its scheduler and web GUI, you'll have to mess with docker. That's what's nice about dagster, it all works out of the box without need for non-Python dependencies.

  • GitHub repo Healthchecks

    A cron monitoring tool written in Python & Django

    Project mention: Suggestions for automatic self-hosted database backups? | | 2021-06-09

    Personally I don't like AWS, too confusing cost calculation. See my other comment, I ended up using a cron job running mysqldump, upload to Backblaze B2 for backups (10GB free), for monitoring the cron job (free) and notifications.

    Music: Compactd, Headphones, Lidarr

  • GitHub repo igel

    a delightful machine learning tool that allows you to train, test, and use models without writing code

    Project mention: Ask HN: How to find sponsors for my open source projects? | | 2021-05-28

    I think that most companies that sponsor projects are companies that are using the projects. IIUC is your most popular project. Who is using it?

    Don't expect the companies to pay. You can not force them to pay. It's a project with a MIT license. (Perhaps this is obvious for you, but a few days ago someone posted a rant by another developer because some companies were using his MIT-license project and only making a $500 annual money contribution.)

    I think one possibility is to write blog post about examples of using the project to solve interesting problems. It's important that they are interesting to get traction here and in other platforms. At the bottom, add a remake explaining that you are the main developer of the project and you'd like sponsors. (I can't guaranty that this will work.)

    Also, this helps as an extended documentation of the project and to get more traffic from google and to get more users. All of that can help to increase the user base and hopefully find an sponsor. (I can't guaranty that this will work.)

  • GitHub repo Automagica

    AI-powered Smart Robotic Process Automation 🤖

  • GitHub repo Errbot

    Errbot is a chatbot, a daemon that connects to your favorite chat service and bring your tools and some fun into the conversation.

    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.

  • GitHub repo splinter

    splinter - python test framework for web applications

  • GitHub repo tox

    Command line driven CI frontend and development task automation tool. (by tox-dev)

  • GitHub repo pyLoad

    The free and open-source Download Manager written in pure Python

    Project mention: Does anyone else thinks JDownloader is an insane software? | | 2021-04-09

    I like pyLoad more, has a webinterface and can run inside docker on a server. So it can download even when my pc is turned off. Used some greasemonkey browser scripts to get Click'N'Load working. I don't use it anymore though, i completely stopped OCH downloading.

  • GitHub repo AutoKey

    AutoKey, a desktop automation utility for Linux and X11.

    Project mention: Venting about "mouse clipboard" which tripled my productivity | | 2021-06-15

    Use something like Autokey (or create your own script using xdotool / ydotool + wl-clipboard, etc.) to get things done even faster.

  • GitHub repo pyppeteer

    Headless chrome/chromium automation library (unofficial port of puppeteer)

    Project mention: Scrape Google Ad Results with Python | | 2021-05-18

  • GitHub repo FlexGet

    The official FlexGet repository

    Project mention: [Solution] Batch selection of specific files in multiple torrents | | 2021-03-03

    Also I want to give credit to FlexGet creators ( coz I took crucial part of the script from their code (MIT licensed) with little changes.

  • GitHub repo PyBuilder

    Software build automation tool for Python.

  • GitHub repo Mycodo

    An environmental monitoring and regulation system

    Project mention: Experience/Opinions on Aerospring? | | 2021-05-14

    There isn't anything I could recommend and I haven't searched for new and exciting aeroponic systems in a while. There was someone posting here for a while (/u/bifarm I think) that designed a system and was selling them at which seemed kind of cool. I don't think they're selling them anymore however but I'm not sure. Their site is still online. If it doesn't have to be aeroponic then the developer of "mycodo" has a cool automated system build which you can find here: He actively develops the software and is very helpful if you are interested in building your own system and using the software.

  • GitHub repo Medusa

    Automatic Video Library Manager for TV Shows. It watches for new episodes of your favorite shows, and when they are posted it does its magic.

    Project mention: RSS Feed Program After Item is Processed | | 2021-03-30

    I'm writing a Python program that makes an RSS post to a local RSS file after a file is added. I'm looking at this link, and I'm confused what argv[3]: Show indexer ID looks like. Is it based off of IMDB, or specific to Medusa? If so, how can I get the show title from it? Thanks.

  • GitHub repo Sub-Zero.bundle

    Subtitles for Plex, as good you would expect them to be.
