hube743127dIt looks like a toy, but once you know it and how wonderful its library are, its just a pleasure to work with it.
You can import everything, and once its loaded its child play to make it works.
The future isn't in making things harder to be use, the future is in making tools that use previous works in the most user friendly possible.
rookiemaverick5444127dPython is good for number crunching like things. It has its own usability. For sure we can't bring a needle to gun fight and a sword to stich clothes.
AleCx0414072127dUnpopular opinion. But one I agree with. I mostly feel this way with interpreted languages even though i make my living using them.
I don't have a middle ground, i generally don't like a lot of things of every technology i use.
Python for example...."there should be one and preferably one way to do things" yet no two flask projects are the same. Django solves this greatly for me...but I have seen some shit.
I also dislike not knowing what things are. I greatly prefer static typing. Golang sort off fixes this for me, it is a language for stupid people and I am fine with that.
xkill1488127d@AlgoRythm Forced Indentation is necessary. It's one of the features that makes a python code easiest to understand of all languages.
As far as performance goes, it solely epends on the interpreter that u are using. cpython is quite slow but pypy is really fast. (In fact in a closely monitored experiment, pypy outperfomed C++ in some cases. google it)
muma356127dFirst of all: Python is NOT a toy. Not even by a long shot. It is a very stable tool, that performs well if you know when and how to apply it. It is not though a final solution for everything and everyone. People seem to have a problem with that concept anyway, i have seen a lot of shit in my day as well.
Python is perfect for the scientific world. Python is perfect if you want a general purpose language for web dev, where you can pretty much code the whole backend and frontend in python. It is a great quick tool and as a "local" language, removed from the web world, it is pretty much unrivaled in its vast stuff of frameworks. Its integration with compiler languages like C++ provide a possibility to outsource the quick stuff and build the logic in python.
Just look at the syntax. Its dead simple, rarely other languages are as readable as python.
And last of all: It is fun to code in it, it is fun to use it. That is an aspect that many people seem to forget as well.
c3ypt1c10412127dWelp, i use Python for selenium because of how easy it is to use. i made a Python selenium Discord bot and it was glorious.
Markus-A34126dLarge websites/apps are made in python. For example YouTube, dropbox, google and Spotify all use python for some of their code.
