Top 23 Python HacktoberFest Projects

  • TheAlgorithms

    All Algorithms implemented in Python

    Project mention: Wikifunctions | | 2023-12-06

    Is it me or does it not seem very well thought out? Every example I've seen only has implementations in JavaScript and/or Python. I haven't seen any other languages nor a way to search by language. What a "string" means in one language can be completely different in another language. The primitive data types that the project assumes are not really supported across all programming languages.

    Also if anyone hasn't already seen them, similar projects already exist and are more complete. E.g.




    Not to mention LeetCode, CodeWars, Project Euler, Exercism can kinda serve the same role.

  • transformers

  • Home Assistant

    Project mention: Ask HN: Why is it so difficult to control IoT devices from your desktop? | | 2024-02-22
  • Ansible

    Ansible is a radically simple IT automation platform that makes your applications and systems easier to deploy and maintain. Automate everything from code deployment to network configuration to cloud management, in a language that approaches plain English, using SSH, with no agents to install on remote systems.

    Project mention: Interesting Uses of Ansible's ternary filter | | 2024-02-22

    They support for-if from python, too: but I haven't tried the "recursive" keyword to know if ansible supports that. I say "ansible supports that" because they don't just drop jinja2 into ansible and call it a draw, they have a bunch of custom execution integrations:

  • PayloadsAllTheThings

    A list of useful payloads and bypass for Web Application Security and Pentest/CTF

    Project mention: php shell not executed in wordpress | /r/hacking | 2023-12-08

    Also I'm sure there's a few test php files in here for filter bypasses too

  • Scrapy

    Scrapy, a fast high-level web crawling & scraping framework for Python.

    Project mention: Scrapy: A Fast and Powerful Scraping and Web Crawling Framework | | 2024-02-16
  • sherlock

    🔎 Hunt down social media accounts by username across social networks

    Project mention: Checking all accounts associated with my email address? | /r/PrivacySecurityOSINT | 2023-11-12

    In the interest of cleaning my digital life a bit I really want to delete all of my old accounts that I no longer use. The terminal application "Sherlock" on github can search for instances of a username you input and find associated websites. Sherlock

  • WorkOS

  • black

    The uncompromising Python code formatter

    Project mention: Uv: Python Packaging in Rust | | 2024-02-15

    black @ git+

  • Sentry

    Developer-first error tracking and performance monitoring

    Project mention: It's 29 Delphi, I mean | | 2024-02-22

    Indeed, webapps are not immune to distribution problems. Wayward and invasive browser extensions are a clear threat, as are 3rd-party dependencies (and their dependencies) loaded at runtime. Which is why companies like exist. I think the difference is that webapps are "distributable by default" and it takes real work to break this. Versus having local desktop apps which require work to distribute. A potent example of the power of defaults.

  • linkedin-skill-assessments-quizzes

    Full reference of LinkedIn answers 2023 for skill assessments (aws-lambda, rest-api, javascript, react, git, html, jquery, mongodb, java, Go, python, machine-learning, power-point) linkedin excel test lösungen, linkedin machine learning test LinkedIn test questions and answers

    Project mention: Tell HN: The hiring platform is complete nonsense | | 2024-01-11

    Been spending a bunch of time trying to get on their hiring platform. After a bunch of surveys on soft skills, assessments for selected tech stacks are required to receive job opportunities.

    It seems like the assessment tests are written by a machine and/or scraped entirely from questions in online repositories.

    As an example, here's a screenshot of one of their nonsense questions for an Android assessment:

    Almost all the questions are like that. I also figured out that a bunch of the questions seem to be copied word for word from online repositories like

    Tried to speak to a person about all the issues which make taking an assessment impossible, and just got more bots.

    I'm sure many are looking for jobs, so figured this would save people a bunch of time.

  • gradio

    Build and share delightful machine learning apps, all in Python. 🌟 Star to support our work!

    Project mention: Show HN: Dropbase – Build internal web apps with just Python | | 2023-12-05

    There's also that library all the AI models started using that gives you a public URL to share. After researching it: is the link.

    It's used specifically for making simple UIs for machine learning apps. But I guess technically you could use it for anything.

    Official repository for IPython itself. Other repos in the IPython organization contain things like the website, documentation builds, etc.

    Project mention: The new pdbp (Pdb+) Python debugger! | | 2023-08-02

    If you’re already using ipython, this isn’t a problem because you’ll already need to download most of these dependencies anyway. But if you’re not using ipython… you’ll still need to download those dependencies.

  • Ciphey

    ⚡ Automatically decrypt encryptions without knowing the key or cipher, decode encodings, and crack hashes ⚡

    Project mention: CyberChef from GCHQ: The Cyber Swiss Army Knife | | 2024-02-01

    I also discovered Ciphey. Neat little tool indeed, but it's being deprecated. It's mentioned in this issue[1] and being replaced with Ares[2]. Neither could decipher this strange encryption[3] I used it on :(

    🕸 Web apps in pure Python 🐍

    Project mention: Show HN: Hyperdiv – Reactive, immediate-mode web UI framework for Python | | 2024-02-20

    Thanks! Pue looks cool, thanks for sharing. I see some similarities to in terms of providing a declarative dom expression language with built-in conditionals and loop primitives.
