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

    The Python programming language

    In addition to great Python HTTP client tools such as Requests and HTTPX, the standard library itself supplies the necessary ingredients to make a working HTTP client for API calls. This tutorial shares how to construct and customize such a tool for your own scripts.

  • pysimpleurl

    You are certainly welcome to copy and use the above function, or browse or clone the Github repo.

  • 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.

  • attrs

    Python Classes Without Boilerplate

    Of course, a custom class will work, or attrs, or whatever container works for you.

  • urllib3

    urllib3 is a user-friendly HTTP client library for Python

    urllib3 is the dependency for many other tools, including requests. By itself, urllib3 is quite usable. It may be all you need.

  • pycurl

    PycURL - Python interface to libcurl

    pycurl is less popular as a Python library, but interfaces with the well-known libcurl.

  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.
