  • How do i go about building a vidoe conferencing app?

    Generally, I'm already using Python to glue together things like OpenCV or libxml, which do the heavy-lifting, and taking advantage of how things like Qt's QImage release Python's Global Interpreter Lock, allowing me to load and process images on a background thread, so the Python code itself is usually already I/O-bound, but yes. If the Python code would become a bottleneck, it helps with that too.
  • Big brained meme I created
  • Catch some info with BeautifulSoup
    BeautifulSoup doesn't support XPath, no? They would need to use a library like lxml instead.
  • Where to start: Learning Web-scraping
    lxml is an XML parser however, it also supports HTML parsing. It's blazing fast and supports XPath. I think it isn't as beginner friendly to use, though it has detailed documentation. It works less well with heavily broken HTML documents and the encoding detection isn't as good as the one of BS4.
  • Python is better than C they said
    According to lxml benchmarking docs, Python’s built in xml parser wouldn’t behave that bad either: https://github.com/lxml/lxml/blob/master/doc/performance.txt
  • Want to try automating what I do majority of the time for my job using Python. Help me check what's possible and recommend the better way to achieve this task.
