  • Mergify - Updating dependencies is time-consuming.
  • Sonar - Write Clean Python Code. Always.
  • InfluxDB - Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time
  • Toolz

    A functional standard library for Python.

    My favourite lib would probably be toolz, it's just so elegant and fun to use. But it's more functional approach is not always the best fit for the time, so in practice I mostly use it in research, prototyping, console and notebooks.

  • pydantic

    Data validation using Python type hints

    As for the most utilized and still loved library, that would probably be pydantic, it helps declaring types so convenient - be it dto's, models or just complex arguments - and plays nice with bunch of other libraries from it's own ecosystem.

  • Mergify

    Updating dependencies is time-consuming.. Solutions like Dependabot or Renovate update but don't merge dependencies. You need to do it manually while it could be fully automated! Add a Merge Queue to your workflow and stop caring about PR management & merging. Try Mergify for free.
