    Project mention: ETL Library for Python | | 2021-09-27

    "On the simpler side". Do you mean with a graphical interface? Then, orange would be a nice solution.

  • GitHub repo dtale

    Visualizer for pandas data structures

    Project mention: Show HN: D-Tale, easy to use pandas GUI | | 2021-11-01
  • GitHub repo VisPy

    Main repository for Vispy

    Project mention: Show HN: MPL Plotter – Python library to make technical plots more efficiently | | 2021-05-14

    2. I recommend Datashader ( (HoloViz is super cool) and Vispy ( I found Vispy's documentation a bit lacking some time ago, but they probably have improved it since then, and it's very capable. Lastly, check Taichi (, might not be a conventional data representation library (or rather, not only), but it's amazing and worth a look.

    To add some more depth to the Seaborn comparison, and not being an expert Seaborn user, I'd say:

    1. MPL Plotter is lighter (but also with less wide-ranging plot options)

  • GitHub repo wave

    Project mention: Creating a web app in Python without knowledge of HTML/CSS/JavaScript | | 2021-04-27
  • GitHub repo lit

    The Language Interpretability Tool: Interactively analyze NLP models for model understanding in an extensible and framework agnostic interface. (by PAIR-code)

    Project mention: AWS - NLP newsletter November 2021 | | 2021-11-24

    Visualize and understand NLP models with the Language Interpretability Tool The Language Interpretability Tool (LIT) is for researchers and practitioners looking to understand NLP model behavior through a visual, interactive, and extensible tool. Use LIT to ask and answer questions like: What kind of examples does my model perform poorly on? Why did my model make this prediction? Can it attribute it to adversarial behavior, or undesirable priors from the training set? Does my model behave consistently if I change things like textual style, verb tense, or pronoun gender? LIT contains many built-in capabilities but is also customizable, with the ability to add custom interpretability techniques, metrics calculations, counterfactual generators, visualizations, and more.

  • GitHub repo git-cola

    git-cola: The highly caffeinated Git GUI

    Project mention: Will Nix Overtake Docker | | 2021-11-29

    Not OP, here are some recommendations:


    Windows and Mac. Free. Feels sluggish, but is also really dependable, the graph view is lovely and it covers most of the common things that you want to do - also, staging/discarding chunks or even individual lines of code is lovely. Oh, and the Git LFS integration, and creating patches is also really easy. And it gives you the underlying Git commands it uses, in case you care about that.


    Windows, Mac and Linux. May need commercial license. Feels like a step up from SourceTree, but i find that using this for commercial needs is a no go. If that's not an issue, however, it has a good UI, is nice to work with and just generally doesn't have anything i'd object to. IIRC it saved my hide years back by letting me do a ctrl+z for a repo after accidentally forcing to the wrong remote, so that i could fix what i had done (memory might fail me, was years ago), just generally feels intuitive like that.

    Git Cola:

    Windows, Mac and Linux. Free and open source. Perhaps one of the more basic interfaces, but as far as free software goes, it does what it sets out to do, and does it well. I use this on Linux, whenever i want to have that visual feedback about the state of the repo/staging area or just don't feel like using the CLI.


    Windows only. Free. Recommending this just because you mentioned TortoiseSVN. If you just want a similar workflow, this is perhaps your best option. Honestly, there is definitely some merit to having a nice file system integration, i rather enjoyed that with SVN.

    Whatever your IDE has built in: look at your IDE

    On any platform that your IDE runs on. Same licensing as your IDE. Some people just shop around for an IDE that they enjoy and then just use whatever VCS workflows that they provide. I'd say that VS Code with some plugins is really nice, though others swear by JetBrains' IDEs, whereas others are fine with even just NetBeans or Eclipse (Java example, you can replace that with Visual Studio or whatever). If youŗe working within a particular stack/IDE, that's not too bad of an idea.

    The CLI:

    Windows, Mac and Linux. Free and open source. You'll probably want to know a bit of the CLI anyways, just in case. Personally, i'm still way too used to using a GUI since dealing with branches and change sets just feels like something that's more easy when visual, but the CLI has occasionally helped me out nonetheless.

  • GitHub repo scattertext

    Beautiful visualizations of how language differs among document types.

    Project mention: Clustering of text - Where to start? | | 2021-08-04

    If what you want is to determine how similar two categories are, or to learn something about the structure or words that compose those categories, you might consider word shift graphs or Scattertext.

  • GitHub repo quantstats

    Portfolio analytics for quants, written in Python

    Project mention: Backtesting Results | | 2021-12-06
  • GitHub repo viztracer

    VizTracer is a low-overhead logging/debugging/profiling tool that can trace and visualize your python code execution.

    PyGraphistry is a Python library to quickly load, shape, embed, and explore big graphs with the GPU-accelerated Graphistry visual graph analyzer

    Project mention: Handbook of Graph Drawing and Visualization | | 2021-12-30

    This! We do it all the time in fraud, genomics, social media, security, etc

    We do one more thing: connect the nearest neighbors to make an interactive similarity graph. Takes just a few lines in total:
