Starred in February 2018: Making HTML parsing easier, a better Jupyter experience, Winamp in your browser, some creating image resizing & a bunch of quick Python examples
So the monthly thing is still happening! It's just a few weeks late. Hopefully more on time for March :)
Kenneth Reitz with another great Python package that will no-doubt make thousands of developer lives easier.
requests-html provides a much simpler interface for the sort of web-scraping a lot of Python developers would lean on
Hard not to drop everything and play with this one!
Jupyter Lab is the next iteration of the amazing Jupyter Notebooks and has recently been released in beta. It provides a web-based interface into an interactive Python shell. Like notebooks, these can be saved and shared with others, and have become incredibly popular in the academic community.
Next time you want to play with a new Python package (like maybe
requests-html) fire it up in Jupyter Lab.
This one really whips the llama's ass.
Caire, or Content Aware Image Resizing Engine, is an implementation of a seam carving algorithm for image resizing. Not sure what that means? Me neither, but this allows you to crop and enlarge images while keeping the content looking relatively normal... Check out the examples in the repository and you'll understand the power!
Cool, that's it for February. Back in a week or two with a list of interesting projects from March!
