    Project mention: I just launched a webapp in Python, a JSON pastebin service called WST! | | 2022-01-15

    I was tinkering with Python web frameworks and decided to get (slightly) serious, so I built an API-only webapp called wst. It's a pastebin that lets you store random JSON and share it with a link, but in this case it's API-only and designed for command-line use (particularly with httpie).

  • GitHub repo tqdm

    A Fast, Extensible Progress Bar for Python and CLI

    Project mention: tqdm (Python) | | 2021-12-16

  • GitHub repo

    :partly_sunny: The right way to check the weather

    Project mention: Anyone using the terminal as a daily driver? | | 2022-01-12

  • GitHub repo asciinema

  • GitHub repo gdb-dashboard

    Modular visual interface for GDB in Python

    Project mention: How do I "replicate" an IDE like the Keil uVision or the TI CCS using Visual Studio Code? | | 2021-12-28

    Debugging: Learn gdb. You can use it for assembly. You can use it for C on a MCU. You can use it for Go on a Linux system. It’s ubiquitous, versatile, and worth understanding. You can pretty-print the output with something like this to help you out at first. There are 2 things you need, however: on chip debugger and a debug probe (though you don’t need an expensive one). Effectively, you talk to GDB, GDB talks to the server exposed by OCD, OCD knows the debug probe protocol, and the debug probe can use the MCU debug peripheral via SWD or JTAG to get those details.

  • GitHub repo google-images-download

    Project mention: Rich is a Python library for rich text and beautiful formatting in the terminal | | 2022-01-15

    Very nice. Two other great python libraries for cli display are:

    1 tabulate: helps render ASCII tables in various formats (

    2. typer: write cli commands by decorating python functions. It uses type annotations to automatically parse input (

    We're using both of those in our Kubernetes troubleshooting tool ( Going to look at adding Rich too

    Project mention: AWS price reduction for data transfers out to the internet | | 2021-11-26

    I never really paid much on these fees. Not enough traffic.

    For newcomers, Cache invalidations are the ones that will really get you bad in CloudFront.

    I was working an publishing open source documentation via CloudFront ( and made a mistake of invalidating '*', and doing it every time I pushed to CI.

    My bill was absolutely enormous. I chewed threw the free tier credits.

    If CloudFront ever gets more generous with invalidations, that'd help reduce the sting for those of us that misuse them.

  • GitHub repo alive-progress

    A new kind of Progress Bar, with real-time throughput, ETA, and very cool animations!

    Project mention: I am a proficient Python coder whose learning has plateaued. Any really useful libraries I should look into learning? Taking recommendations. | | 2021-04-16

    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
