    Retrying library for Python (by jd)

    Hi all. After more then half a year study advanced python and SE principles I would like to develop a library of my liking. I’m aiming for a common decorators library. But after I saw the source code of tenacity (A retry pattern library). I was discouraged. It’s still very complicated to me for now. I can understand a lot of tenacity now. But to code it as beautiful as the auther is tough. Tenacity is not even a big library. My goal is to develop something bigger. I read Learning Python, know many standard library, then two books on SE. A design patterns book for python (broad not deep). And a clean code book (This one is pretty deep). Beyond that I know data structure and algo stuff. I thought I know python at an immediate level now. But seems source code is out of reach. Just wondering how long in python dev before you can develop something like tenacity.

    Build GUI for your Python program with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS

    I have started pywebview eight years ago by just releasing code I had wrote for a personal project that I thought other people might find useful. Community found it useful indeed, and little by little it became a full-fledged library.
