    Project mention: Kraken Technologies: How we organise our large Python monolith | | 2023-07-18

    Never heard of before. Not sure if I like this type of solution, but it's interesting, and certainly the problem is real.

  • deptry

    Find unused, missing and transitive dependencies in a Python project.

    Project mention: deptry 0.10.0 - A tool to detect issues with your project's dependencies and imports. | /r/Python | 2023-05-08

    Since PEP-621 does not specify a recommended way to define development dependencies, everything is expected to be a regular dependency. See here.

  • creosote

  • sbomnix

    sbomnix is a utility that generates SBOMs from nix packages

    Project mention: Wolfi: A community Linux OS designed for the container and cloud-native era | | 2023-06-27

    I'm not sure what you mean by "non-trivial" but here's a simple discord bot I wrote in python, that I distribute as an OCI image and that is built with Nix for both x86_64 and aarch64 linux via GitHub actions:

    There is no SBOM because I didn't bother publishing one but the way Nix builds derivations, you basically get the SBOM for free. You could use a tool like sbomnix[1] to trivially generate an SPDX-format SBOM from the nix derivation that builds the container image.
