10 Useful Python Libraries Developer Should Know About

Python is a general-purpose, high-level programming language.whose design philosophy emphasizes code readability. Python claims to combine “remarkable power with very clear syntax”, and its standard library is large and comprehensive.

Python supports multiple programming paradigms, primarily but not limited to object-oriented, imperative and, to a lesser extent, functional programming styles. It features a fully dynamic type system and automatic memory management, similar to that of Scheme, Ruby, Perl, and Tcl. Like other dynamic languages, Python is often used as a scripting language, but is also used in a wide range of non-scripting contexts.

Using third-party tools, Python code can be packaged into standalone executable programs. Python interpreters are available for many operating systems. (Wiki)

Today we are going to share some highly useful python resources and tools for python programming language. Visit this list and select the best one that helps programmers to create and develop their applications in a easy way.

A few days ago, we had covered best tools/resources for PHP programers, graphic and design tools and Flash tools for 3d programmers. Also share your thought in our comment section below.


2) pyclamav

pyClamAV is a python binding to libclamav written in C. By using pyClamAV, you can add virus detection capabilities to your python software in an efficient and easy way.

3) sh

4) jabberpy is a Python module for the jabber instant messaging protocol. deals with the xml parsing and socket code, leaving the programmer to concentrate on developing quality jabber based applications with Python.

The eventual aim is to produce a fully featured easy to use library for creating both jabber clients and servers.

6) watchdog

Python API library and shell utilities to monitor file system events.

7) python-irclib

This library is intended to encapsulate the IRC protocol at a quite low level. It provides an event-driven IRC client framework. It has a fairly thorough support for the basic IRC protocol, CTCP and DCC connections.

8) pyquery

pyquery allows you to make jquery queries on xml documents. The API is as much as possible the similar to jquery. pyquery uses lxml for fast xml and html manipulation. It can be used for many purposes, one idea that I might try in the future is to use it for templating with pure http templates that you modify using pyquery.

MySQLdb is an thread-compatible interface to the popular MySQL database server that provides the Python database API.
