Episode 155: Checking Project Dependencies & Python Dev Resource Collections
May 05, 2023 38m
How can you ensure that you’ve appropriately declared your project’s required dependencies? How do you determine what dependencies are missing from a third-party project that you can’t run? This week on the show, Christopher Trudeau is here, bringing another batch of PyCoder’s Weekly articles and projects.
We discuss a new Python dependency checker called FawltyDeps. The tool helps you determine if you’ve declared too few or too many packages for your project.
Christopher has brought several developer resource collections: a list of assured open-source Python packages from Google, test databases with interesting datasets, and multiple Django third-party packages.
We cover several other articles and projects from the Python community, including a news update, advice on how to pitch yourself as a guest to a podcast, how to submit articles and projects to PyCoders Weekly, PyPI’s introduction of trusted publishers and organizations, a tool for tracking package history, a pixel art paint program written in Python, and a project for efficient string matching with regular expressions.
Course Spotlight: Publishing Python Packages to PyPI
In this video course, you’ll learn how to create a Python package for your project and how to publish it to PyPI, the Python Package Index. Quickly get up to speed on everything from naming your package to configuring it using
