So I dual booted my pc with Ubuntu a few weeks back. And I came to a conclusion today.
Um, windows needs to go.23
Initial steps of learning any new programming language :
*heck yeah I created a calculator. Guess I'll show my family that I actually can code! *
-hey mom, dad look I made a simple calculator using python B)
- uhm... That's great son but dont we already have one of those?
- yeah but like... this is completely different it uses a different programming language than what you and I have been using all this time.
- ah I see. Good for you then
*muttering to each other*
-are you sure he's got the aptitude to be a cse?
-at this point we can just hope.
Me:*stares blindly in my dark room contemplating why I'm alive*7
My friend brought me a simple python problem. He expected the output to be 2,2,3... instead of 2,3... I didn't know python, but with a quick tweak to differentiate the two prints, I understood that the range() function is exclusive.
Before coming to me, he asked his senior dev & that guy just said - "Oh, your editor has a problem". 😐5
*wants to download some YouTube videos in youtube-dl*
$ youtube-dl --a-bunch-of-options
> Can't download this, sorry.
*realizes that Ubuntu probably has an outdated version like usual*
# apt remove youtube-dl
*Realizes that this steaming pile of shit pulled in some icons and Wayland on a headless server*
# apt autoremove
> 300-something MB cleared
For a command-line tool...
# pip install youtube-dl
# apt install ffmpeg
$ youtube-dl --audio-format mp3 -o "%(title)s.%(ext)s" https://youtube.com/playlist/...
> Sorry mate, a video was removed from this playlist! Let me go ahead and shit the bed on this issue that's been reported several times since 6 years ago.
*finds an issue on GitHub reporting this, add -i option to continue on error*
$ youtube-dl --audio-format mp3 -o "%(title)s.%(ext)s" https://youtube.com/playlist/... -i
> There you go, your .webm files as requested!
But.. I requested .mp3 output? --audio-format mp3, don't you see?
> Oh no you need to add in another option to tell me to actually do that first. --extract-audio, you see?
But why.. why do you need to be told that twice? Oh ffs, fuck it.
Reminds me of robocopy. That shit required me to tell it 25 times what to do and it'd still not do it right as well. And you know what, compared to rsync where -avz works 99% of the time, I hate it.7
An idea for a romantic gesture to my python loving girlfriend
ill make a library with poems I wrote for her and other nice stuff
upload it to pip and call it by her name
now you can pip install it
every time you do import "her name"
it will write out a poem about her
what do you think?15
"First remove the break points, and then commit the code".
He described it as if the breakpoints could stop time!! 😂5
After seeing @Gregozor2121 share, I searched around in my bookmarks for similar stuff. Here are a couple of links that I feel is useful for everyone:
A massive list of Free programming books.
(Also do explore anything marked as "awesome", cause it literally is awesome!! They have got tons of lists of resources for most programming languages, free software lists, famous stackoverflow answers, quotes & even Pokemon!!)
I also had this bookmarked:
Basically cheat sheets at your command line. Pretty neat utility.8
>Instructions in the manual -
1. Install Python 3.5
2. After installation is complete, open a new terminal/command prompt window and run 'pip install pandas'
1. Installs Python 3.7.2
2. Types Python in command prompt, types 'pip install pandas' there
3. Raises a hue and cry over the program not working because the instructions were not clear
TL;RD: bla, bla, another ranter showing off one of their projects.
I know many of you are pihole users and also like hacking around with software. So I figured I should share this here.
I discovered that there is a (somewhat) secret pihole api. It allows for a ton of cool stuff. So I started writing an API wrapper for it in python and published it on pip.
Its not finished yet, but it you would like to check it out, it's available on my GitHub, here:
Some lunatic apparently created a package and named it "django-restframework" (notice the hyphen?) and not the conventional, popular "djangorestframework" that we all know and love.
I made a mistake to install the former and after installing with pip and saving in my requirements.txt file it read "django-restframework==0.0.1"
I looked at the version number and initially thought "hmm, well that's odd" but didn't pay much attention to it cos I was trying to get started really quickly.
Long story short, I just spent the past hour trying to understand why I was getting a ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'rest_framework' whenever I tried to execute my project.
🙂 thank you lunatic4
Today's archiviements: publish my first Python package
I made it to control my Mipow BT Le lightbulb, package name python-mipow1
Spent weekend building DevRant Api Wrapper in Python.
How to Install(tested in Python 2.7):
sudo python -m pip install pirant==0.1.3.dev1
Currently, only features to getRants. More features coming soon....30
Hey im gonna take pip and shove it up my fucking asshole along with the people who made that piece of shit (:20
Usually I develop in python, mongo, cordova and node. Few days back I installed Windows on my laptop cause I needed to use the Visual Studio for a specific task. Then I thought that if I can setup the python, mongo, cordova and node stack on Windows then I don't need to switch between Linux and Windows frequently. And that was a horrible decision.
It took almost 8-10 hours to setup that shit, and still I couldn't make it work. There are so much complexities and those do not make any fucking sense! I mean why the hell I need to add the python path to the environment variables, and then again add the pip path separately. Then mongodb can not autostart. And finally I needed to make and build a package, and that waa the moment when I just scrapped it.
It takes me 2-3 hours to setup a fresh Linux box (which supports apt) including the OS installation. Same for the osX. I still wonder that why Microsoft does this! If Windows is for non-dev and non-tech people then why don't they release a Windows developer edition? Developing anything except ASP.NET and Java in Windows is a fucking nightmare for me!11
My neural networks journey so far:
Look up tutorials -> see that Python is a popular tool for ML -> install Python -> pip install scipy -> breaks with some weird error involving BLAS library code -> spend half an hour fixing it -> try installing Theano -> breaks because my USERNAME HAS A SPACE IN IT LIKE SERIOUSLY? WTF -> make new account without a space in the name -> repeat till Theano -> run tests, found out that I didn't install CUDA support -> scrap the install and redo with CUDA support -> CUDA libraries take forever to download on shitty internet -> run tests -> breaks with some weird Theano compiler error -> go crying to friend -> friend tells me about Anaconda -> scrap the previous install and download Anaconda over shitty connection -> mess up conda environments because noobishness -> scrap, retry -> YESS I FINALLY GOT IT WORKING TIME TO DO SOME LEARNI-crap it's 4 in the morning already.
I realize that I'm a Python noob (and also, uni computers with GPUs have preconfigured Windows installed only, no Linux), but is installing Python libraries always such a pain? Am I doing something wrong? Installing via Anaconda felt like cheating, tbh.6
Hey guys. I have a question.
What Linux tools do you use daily?
Here is my list:
Ssh, scp, netcat, neovim, Gradle, frcmake, gcc, clang-format, python3, pip, wget, git, hub, code, gitkracken, wine, gqrx, gnuradio, rtl_tcp, aircrack_ng, ftp, chromium, crostini, crouton, chromebrew.
I'm probably missing a few. I am curious to see what you guys use.13
Big Company rant #2
As I said before I have no admin permissions on my working Notebook and everytime I want those, I have to call the inhouse support, make an Appointment and then they Access my Computer and type in their root Password. Of Course after I had explained them what I want to do nearly a hundred times.
next Thing is our custom Firewall. It is global in our Network and all the Computers have a custom Root Certificate for SSL installed, BUT this certificate seems to be not recognized by nearly every program I want to use. Git-Bash, npm, python/pip, docker, .. everywhere I have to manually install this cert, but most of the time I Need admin Rights to edit those.
After 3 weeks in this Company I thought I have everything correctly installed and configured.
But Company said no.
I received a mail over the Weekend which said my Notebook will be replaced because the one I had was an Interims device and they only waited for a new delivery of devices.
So now I am sitting here at my desk unproduuctive, configuring my Setup AGAIN7
Oh boy, finally something to rant about.
I got hired in a "small" company (not even 2000 people in it), then got "shipped" to a way bigger company. Basically, I work for this company (the french biggest internet / phone service provider) but in the name of my own. And this since last wednesday.
First off, I'm fucking stupid. After leaving the big company that I was in before, I swore to myself that from now on, I would work for smaller companies, mainly because I couldn't stand the inertia that big company have. You ask for something, you get it a month and a half after. The old company has about 6000 employees... This company has 98k people in it. Fuck. My. Life.
Now, to the rant: Orange (the company) decided that they had to move their office somewhere else. They set up a lot of things so that all we needed to do was to put things in boxes, to work somewhere else until next monday, then we could go to the new office on tuesday morning.
Keep in mind that I have been there for 8 days: I keep learning how they do their stuff. For example, if I need a specific docker image, I can't get it from the Docker Hub, the download will fail. However, if I hit an Orange subdomain's registry, I will get this image from a mirror. Because fuck logic.
When we join the company, they give us a Windows laptop ("yeaah we have useless but required Orange softwares that don't run on Linux" "Yeeaaah fuck you") that have a specific VPN allowing us to use the Orange network and, in theory, you can download docker images or clone orange repositories from that network.
In practice, you can simply just go fuck yourself. Why? Because whenever you want to curl, wget or pull anything (or even pip install), your connection keeps being shut down while it waits for the response's header.
The worst part? According to my (new) boss's evasive answers, the way to fix that works with glue, sticks and the power of the Force.
WHY THE FUCK DO YOU ENFORCE US A SHITTY OS FOR DEVELOPMENT, WHEN THE TOOLS YOU SHOVE IN IT WITH A FAKE SMILE DON'T EVEN WORK, AND WE HAVE TO HACK OUR WAY TO FUCKING WORK?6
Adventures in not knowing python: Episode 4!
After having finally extracted all the files I needed, figuring out where the hell they go and how they connect together I tried to plug it all into an AWS ec2 and get going. WRONG!
Every package was at least 3 years out of date. Most couldn't be downloaded directly with pip or wget (because the paths to them weren't available or were the wrong version) so I've had to find, download and scored every package to the instance. This, mind you, with no experience of Django and basically none of Python.
I've finally gotten them all in and installed and set up and checked their version against the live site. I have until tomorrow morning to get it all set up.
Wish me luck gentlemen!2
How to install tensorflow on windows?
pip install tensorflow3
How deep does the rabbit hole go?

I love python, but I hate dealing with python dependencies, especially on Windows.
I was tinkering and researching with neural networks, so I wanted to try out pybrain. I wrote my project, with pybrain installed via pip, and tried to build it.
Oh, what's that? Pybrain doesn't work with python 3? Well I'll download the version that's supposed to. Oh, that version has a deprecated numpy api? Let me just install those other resources. Oh, that requires a broken module that has no publicly available source?
Let's try python 2. Oh, now that's working, I just need to export environment variables for some "bls source". Some quick Google searching and the only solution that would work is building a bunch of cywgin modules by hand. That's fine, I have an ubuntu partition.
An hour later I'm compiling FORTRAN dependencies on Ubuntu.
Coding time: 1 hour
Dependency time: 3 hours6
I have an exam in 4 hours. I've been studying all night and now I can't seem to retain anything.
I'm fuckin screwed.9
Switched from Android to iOS. Been using android since 2014 and now I’m on iOS 13 on the iPhone 11.
It’s pretty nice overall but there are somethings I really miss. YouTube vanced with its background audio and cracked Spotify were godsends. From what I’ve seen, adblockers only really work on safari but safari actually works just fine and it looks really nice too.
I can still use 18.104.22.168 as my dns and have adblocking, I love it.
Pip is something I thought I’d miss but found that I really didn’t need it.
Sound and notifications are a big pain tho. Only one channel of audio? Cmon man. And notifications on iOS are a bit of a mess.
Control center is very very nice in terms of functionality and aesthetics.
Speaking of, everything in iOS just looks so good. The UI/UX Is incredible.
The display on my iPhone isn’t better than my s8 and some YouTube videos look kinda wack even at 1080 and even some nice photos I took on my s8 looked sucky ish. I think a big reason why the “android camera sucks lmao” meme still exists is because most iPhones have low pixel density and are maybe biased to make iPhone shots look better? Idk tho
I used to disable animations on android but iOS animations are very nice.
Shortcuts app is very cool, very integrated big supporter of this.11
Why python can't into proper dependency management?
I Node.js we use npm. Modules are downloaded per project and packaging is easy.
In Java we use maven/gradle. Never been so easy to build and download libraries and package your project.
But in Python? No, it's not easy. You have to use virtualenv first so pip/anaconda won't download globally, then you must write setyp.py in a million different ways. Packaging and distribution to clients? Good luck with that.21
This company's API simply wraps python commands from "client.get_data" to http://service_host/get_data. I spent 30 minutes trying to get through your stupid PIP installation crap, to find out all you do is wrap python's urllib2 library with 4 lines of code?
seconds into 2019
I see one incompetent fucker asking to eval in Node.js..
A FUCKING FETCH OF A NPM MODULES IN CDNJS
you know what's the reason?
Fucking kill me unless you're some dumb bitch who uses npm modules like some braindead motherfucker who doesn't know what a number is, node_modules takes only an average of 3.6MB
Compared to RubyGems who takes 40+
Seriously stop this. I wanna hang myself because my 2019 put me in a shit mood1
Just realised chrome almost has picture in picture working for videos... If you enable the PiP flag you can double right click on videos and it has an option to enter PiP... Come on please finish this!2
Be me at work, 12h nights shift, 4th day like that
Following online course on machine learning, instructor says we'll use python 3.x as the interpreter for the project, boot personal laptop and start pycharms, create the file, choose right interpreter no big deal
pip install the modules I need for the course - done, try to import them.
Doesn't work, first reboot, still not working, browsing Internet for answers, no ideas, reboot again (you never know) reload pycharms, browse Internet again, find out the modules only work on python 2.7.
Wasted 45minutes for this shit
Feels good bro.2
Worst mistake ever :
Didn't care for changing environment while pip or apt, always did sudo for no reason.
One day installed Conda and unity. Didn't realise it changed everything to python3-gi. Everything fucked up.
Tried to fix by started removing Conda removed gnome*, lost GUI.
For first time worked on tty, after a 6 hour redbull session. Got back the system working.
First thing then done is learn to install in virtual and local environments.1
With the invention of pip every project done with python just fucken angers me. Like mostly nothing fucken works if there is a single .py file in there. You can put your easy-install.sh up your ass if it just ~tries~ to install shit via pip before because IT WONT WORK FUCK THIS SHIT!
STOP USING PYTHON FOR PROJECTS YOU RELEASE PLS CUS SHITS UNREADABLE AND WONT WORK ON MY MACHINE. MAKE ROOM FOR PROJECTS MANAGED BY NPM OR SHIT LIKE THAT WHERE `npm install` ACTUALLY DOES IT'S JOB THANKS I'M ANGRY AF.
WHAT DOES COLLECTING EVEN MEAN AND WHEN IS IT DONE DUDE?!6
Python haters, gather 'round
oh come on... In java it's all simple as 123. You build an app, you have like 200 dependencies, you pack it all in a single fat jar and only deploy that single .jar. Don't need no internet, no installs, no pip, no nothing: just your .jar file and the JVM.
- build an app
- use 200+ deps
- build your whole project into a single fat jar
- deploy your jar in the env
- install [*khem khem* scp into the server] jre
Now let's look at py, shall we?
- build an app
- use 1 dep
- deploy all the 20 .py files in the env
- make sure you have internet access
- install python
- install pip
- pip install <my dependency>
- run your app18
6 different package managers to keep up to date.
Good thing bash scripts and cron jobs exist5
I've made app that simplifies usage of https://transfer.sh.
You can install it via pip install pytransfer. Then you can easily upload file via transfer filename1 filename2 etc..
Feel free to try it.
You can contribute to project at https://github.com/PapiCZ/...1
Just wasted four hours trying to install a python library in windows!
And the bugs in Visual Studio 17... Made my day!7
Learning Image Processing,Deep Learning,Machine Learning,Data modeling,mining and etc related to and also work on them are so much easier than installing requiremnts, packages and tools related to them!2
Python, fuuuuck youuuu and your stupid packaging system, and python devs who are bashing on js you douchebags ever tried NPM !!26
Be developing in python 3
$ pip install <library>
Don't understand for hours why it doesn't work
I should alias pip3
I actually found a real website using a Spinner UI element for inputting phone numbers!
It accepts typing the number too, though. So not completely bad. Also it only appears in the desktop version.
I guess this was just some short cut to force numerical input. Still was pretty shocked. I've only seen them in jokes/memes.
*spends 3 hours debugging a specific piece of code*
*my code wasn't working*
*wonders what the hell is going on, copy pastes code from the documentation*
*the example code still wasn't working*
*hops on a discord and asks about it*
tfw "the library you installed from pip is a fake package and that's why nothing is working"
I hate that the company that I work for has every hugging page blocked. I can't even download or use pip. For hug sake, I don't even have a project to work on and you stop me from working on any side projects?
I hope I get a call from the places I've applied for.4
I always feel python3 and pip3 are enemy of pip and python. My Mac always is in conflict of each other... Its feels like they are trying to prove each other3
I haven't coded anything for months now, maybe 1.5 to 2 years even, because I was struggling with depression and unresolved issues. I'm still not out of it, and I'm not seeing anyone for now because of quarantine, but I've been taking antidepressants during the last months (prescribed by a doctor) and they're beginning to have a good effect. I'm feeling better by the day, and I'm looking forward to seeing a professional and getting better without the medication after the end of the coronacrisis (which isn't something I would have thought sometime ago, so that's encouraging).
Anyway, today I took my laptop and started coding again, and I really liked it, but it really felt like my mind was fucking rusted after all this time. It took me like 3 hours to write 60 limes of code. I know that by keeping coding a bit everyday I will find my old skills again, but I was wondering if you had any tip to ease the start, like doing code exercises, or trying to make a simple project. I'll take any tip to get back on the train again, as quickly and smoothly as possible.
Second question : please comfort me and tell me I'm not the only one who is suffering or has suffered from rusted mind syndrome.5
My Data Communication & Computer Networks (DCCN) teacher was the best teacher I've seen.
Teaching can be super hard. You're one against like sixty others who aren't interested in being there. To make that good learning environment, making the subject interesting etc, it not easy. Some justify that, "I can only bring the horse to the water" & proceed to just regurgitate whatever is on the book. Others cross question you & impose punishments - try to make you learn by fear.
But my DCCN teacher - she had the right balance between strictness & humour. So kids took her seriously (did homework, weren't late), yet never feared her - we felt comfortable asking doubts/questions.
She had some good tactics, like asking us to teach certian chapters - that made us learn better. She would revise them in the end also, incase we missed anything.
My best moment with her was when I scored the highest in my internals. She picked up my paper & showed the class - "see? Just two pages & he scored so much". There's was always those students who pump out a lot of stories/essays or whatever that comes to their mind about the topic in question. Lots of teachers just blindly give marks - "oh, s/he wrote this much, so it must be right".
But my DCCN teacher had zero tolerance for garbage. If you're wrong, you're wrong. Some even believe that the number of marks = number of lines you have to write!! Doesn't matter what you write. So, I was super glad when this teacher upped the standards.
I'm studying atm and I survived Haskell, SKI, ... now, in the second semester we started with Python (yeay ♡) and Java (that's fine).
One of the first exercises is about installing Jython ('cause it's good, right? /sarcasm off), using the lecturer's module and write some code for it. It's about painting some shitty graphics *gasp*...
I use PyCharm (not really necessary for these crappy exercises) and programming on Windows and/or Linux.
Downloaded Jython, installed it, set it as interpreter - works fine (win10, pycharm).
Some students got weird errors using linux - for me it's the same but meh Idc.
Today I tried using Jython on my notebook, too (win10, pycharm). Downloaded it from the Jython Project website. Can't update pip, can't run modules - error is about fckin charsets...
Some other student figured out - wrong version of Jython. The newer version has some bug fixes.
2.7.1 is the one and only - the download section of their website offers 2.7.0 as latest release...
So - how to know there is a version 2.7.1?
#1 version control website = Wikipedia
So... there is a blog, guy's writing about this release - this installer is hosted at maven central. Yeay. Obvious. Thanks.
Can't describe such stupidity - maybe it's the user again 😂
Anaconda. Quite fitting a name to something that fucks up python environments so thoroughly. Ironic too, given that it was meant to simplify. Anaconda doesn't give a shit about the python that came with the distro. And all packages installed with pip are only visible to anacondas python. Not a single note of caution during installation. Or a best practices guide for the newbie. Just chaos. Utter chaos. The price of being a noob had been paid.5
Super curious: Ive broken my arch frequently. And then fix it and go on with my day. Or an update causes some weird package confliction because I used pip instead of pacman for one library or whatever.
But I keep hearing from different sources that "arch being super unstable is a myth. It never happens!" Okay surely not all the time, my system is usually pretty good but:
Do you people never `pacman -Syyu` ?
How have you not broken everything?! Or do you just pretend like the AUR (the best thing ever and also the source of most of my problems) doesn't exist? What black magic are you doing to appease the arch gods?10
Shared home directory, different architectures, and fucking python pip.
Python allows a site-wide architecture-dependent directory, but PEP 370 presumes all the world's a vax. Or whatever machine you happen to be using at the time.
Did people look at autoconf's --exec-prefix and think, who would ever use that? So sick of software reanimating bad design decisions that were put to rest thirty years ago.2
Used pip install to integrate tensorflow with python 3.5 on windows 10 machine but there were no models available in it. Had to download that separately and add it to tensorflow. Then tried using both inception and clasify_image.py but gives name error cannot find core. But when tested on python idle there were no error there. I don't want to custom create my own classifier but retrain the model. Any solution people?1
Hello everyone. I'm getting interested in neural networks and I am trying to install the TensorFlow machine learning API using Python's pip package manager but it gives me an error saying that the package couldn't be found. I made sure that I spelled everything correctly and tried using VirtualENV to install it as well, and I uninstalled Python 3.7 and installed 3.6.4. Could anyone help me?4
asl v0.1.3 has been released!
Full Windows compatibility and way lower timelapse times. Probably the best release so far.
Go on, pip install asl-screenlapse
(Way off target of https://devrant.com/rants/2251757/...)
Also probably the last cos you can just oneline it with ffmpeg: x11grab, speedup, direct output to file. So I'll write asl.sh. So simple I deserve no credit.
Fuck++ I C only red error messages which make me god damn furious. Why is it such a pain in the ass to ./configure this stupid external lib to work on Windows on MinGW and Qt Creator? Why can't I just pip install that crap and import from a single line of code instead of getting fucked several hours without even realising what's fisting me that hard?
You are penetrating me C++. I'm not happy with that. I can't figure it out cause the docs are crap.
Just add the path to the libs they say. Just add the include directory they say. It's damn easy they say.
You know what? IT'S A FUCKING PAIN IN THE AS I SAY! DAMN IT.
Its soo annoying when u have Anaconda installed with all the shit packages and when u IDLE run the python and import packages it gives errors and when u try to pip install them it says request all ready satisfied in anaconda!!!!😭
asl has an example gif now:
(Previous post: https://devrant.com/rants/2234550/...)
Finally got around to re-aliasing `pip` to reach `pip3` on my mac. That feels so good. Why didn't I do that earlier?
pip kept screwing me up with permission issues in /usr/local etc. Changed permissions for respective python folders, still got pip permission errors,did a chgrp - R user /usr.
Have to reinstall :/4
Work proxy, meet dependency hell.
Can't even install pip modules, everything has to be done through source 😓
We're finishing some projects for uni. I've done mine, and am just helping out with others.
There was a friend who is doing her write-up. My other buddy was just just troubling her for fun. He threatened to press the power button on the laptop, thus sending it to hibernate. Minor nuisance; she just need to turn it back on after all.
She pleaded to leave her & let her complete the write-up. So I asked her if I could quickly re-configure the power button. You know, go to the windows power settings, and tell it to do nothing upon pressing the button.
She said no. But the way she said it struck me odd. As in "No, why would anyone do that!?". Debatable. Just to make sure, I asked whether she understood what I requested. She made a quick hand gesture of plucking the power button off!! 😐
Me & my buddy just stare at each other. "Yeah you're right, you're right, what a stupid idea...". We just slowly scoot from there. 🏃
No idea how she reached this far...1
I love Django, the philosophy behind it and how smart it is. I hate the Python ecosystem. virtualenv and pip is really dump e.g.4
PHP: Laravel, Phalcon, Composer
Python: Django, Flask, Requests, pip, SQLAlchemy
Java: Spring, Dropwizard, Hibernate
DB: MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, Cassandra1
for the first time in all this time using archlinux, something broke. latest pip 18.1 breaks pipenv.
I was wondering why people say bleeding edge software are unstable while it quite stable for me. Now I know why.1
We have Python. A very fast to use language.
We have a package warehouse with a lot of packet, PyPI.
Why for the rage of the Gods the upload procedure of a new package to PyPI need to be so LONG and not easily understood??2
This popped up when I was searching for SimpleHTTPServer in pip.
`pip3 search SimpleHTTPServer` and I don't know whether its good or bad.
THE fucking pip is not working again. This time throwing sslerror ssl_certificate. Googled and came to know they removed TLS 1.0 and 1.1 support. Solution upgrade the pip. Done. Still same.
Checked their website no information.
Don't have words now.3
Is it just me or is python community's dependency management a bit unreliable?
I just can't seem to easily install any python programs without missing dependencies. Updates have caused libraries to become incompatible, which in turn causes the application that used to work to just produce a stack trace.
Is this the state of python or am I doing something wrong.3
I'm not a newcomer here, I actually had an account 2 days ago, that I deleted in order to create a new one. I had to start fresh.
Anyway, after a long time of absence (one of the reasons I deleted my previous account), I'm glad I'm back here, and I look forward to discuss interesting topics with this community again!1
I love python, when it works.
Im really new and retarded at the language, but i managed to make a small useful program for my dad.
It works perfectly on Windows, yay.
It needs to run on a CentOS server, and for some reason, smtplib wont allow me to log into my gmail when i run it on CentOS :(
And yes, i did install all packages with pip, and i do run it with Python3, same version as i wrote it in.
I also added that nifty shebang that doesnt appear to do shet for me xD3
Say what you want about npm and node_modules, it is much better than other package management systems like pip.
Least I don't need to create an entirely new installation of nodejs every time I want to build something new that might depend on some packages that depends on an 0.0.1 version lower of another package that is used by a different project I currently have to also maintain.
P.s. I do love python overall and it's ecosystem, the package management and version control are sheer garbage.2
What is your go to platform to publicly share your git repos? Obviously GitHub is the most popular, but I wonder if there are other platforms that are widely used in the same fashion.
What prevents you from using GitLab or anything else? Is it just Github's popularity or are there features that only GitHub has that keep you to it?15
Java script must be so powerful. I didn't know you could build a whole pip network using mobile and desktop devices as servers to replace the dark Web!4
Why the fuck do I need to install brew to have AWS' SAM CLI? Couldn't you provide me with an install script or an apt package? Now I have to install linuxbrew (never used it) and pollute my os with crap I'll never use just to have this fucking cli so I can create a fucking lambda function project on intellij idea.
Oh, I can install it with pip. Well yes but actually no. They fucking deprecated the pip package and just gave me a link with instructions on how to install it with brew.
I was praising AWS for their good docs yesterday, now I'm pissed at those lazy fucks >:(11
Do you know any open-source and free (as in beer) mockup/wireframe tool for webdesign?
I may soon have two websites to build for little businesses, but I'd like to be able to create mockups for approval before diving into the code. As I was looking for tools, I was surprised to find no free and open-source software for the job. Everything is on a free trial model which I'd be glad to pay for if I had the money, but since I'm really just beginning, I'd rather use something free, and preferably open-source.
I'll use Gimp if nothing comes up, but since it's not intended for this kind of usage, it's a bit more time consuming to create something of quality on it.
Thanks a lot.15
Oh... I dont know what to pick...
So i will pick 3 projects from my 3 stages of my dev "carrier"
1.Right after i discovered programing and learned how ,if, while and similar structures worked. The launguage was object pascal with delphi 2007
That was a "safe" with a stupidly complicated lock (text inputs, sliders, ect) it opened a secret folder in the end.
2. It was a embedded code for a Atmega8 AVR, Atmel studio, pure C but without memory managment (i didnt even know that it even existed)
It was a Pip boy knockoff, 16x2 display and a small keyboard connected to the arduino like board that i made on a proto board.
It wasnt that much of a pipboy, it was more of a showoff of atmega8 internal systems, (ADC, timers, interrupts and such)
3.DataLab, after helping my friend with his master thesis, (we meet on discord long story, i was in high school) i decided that mathlab is shit and i created a visual scripting enviroment, launguage C# .net 4 (in the latest version)
I remade the whole program from scrach 1 time, significantly improving everything (code reuse, better algorithms, data processing, code redability and edge cases) I have learned good practises from everywhere. I learned how to use git.
DataLab project looks just like LabViev (i didnt notice that it even existed...), it is frozen now because of my mental status but im planning on using it on my CV when i will be looking for jobs on holidays. There are many things that i can improve in that program but ... first i have to fix myself.
Python is basically Perl with slightly different syntax plus has py2/py3 issues. And suffers from pip like js does from npm.
Java/C# started as application languages, while PHP started in web servers (again from Perl but at least it now has full object support). So comparing apples and oranges is one thing.
Another one is that people don't seem to know much about PHP / js (and tbh not even about the languages they are promoting) when they try to hate. That just comes off as lazy and borderline idiotic. Don't be that guy.
If you have had a bad experience, maybe you need to open the documentation instead of copying code from stack overflow.
Again, lazy and unprofessional.
Devs are supposed to be able to find the most efficient solution, that takes as little code as possible, not as little time from them when they arent familiar with the subject.
Damn Im angry right now, this rant really worked me up! :D6
I have Manjaro KDE on my Acer Predator Helios 300 (dual boot with W10, unfortunately, because games/some programs needed).
I want to try another distro.
Is Fedora a good choice ? Is there any potential issue or things I should look out for ?
Do you know a good distro that runs fine on that hardware ? I'm just curious here.
Any tip before I backup my home ?
I put the / on my SSD and the /home on my HDD. Any reason why I shouldn't keep it that way ?
Thank you :-) !7
I'm working on a simple Flask project. But when I try to work with the database I got an error called "No module named MySQLdb". I also got error when I try to install "mysql clint" with this command:-pip install mysqlclient. So I searched for the solution of this problem but every time I find someone told to download "MySQL client" from this website:-
But the "MySQL client" file is no longer available on that website.
please help me by giving that file or any other way. You can also check my project from here:-
unfortunately, my operating system is Android 6.0
Here is the code:-
from flask import Flask,render_template, request
from flask_sqlalchemy import SQLAlchemy
app.config['SQLALCHEMY_DATABASE_URI'] = "mysql://localhost/codingthunder/"
db = SQLAlchemy(app)
sno = db.Column(db.Integer, primary_key=True)
name = db.Column(db.String(80), nullable=False)
phone_num = db.Column(db.String(14), nullable=False)
mes = db.Column(db.String(120), nullable=False)
date = db.Column(db.String(12), nullable=False)
email = db.Column(db.String(20), nullable=False)
entry=Contacts(name=name,phone_num=phone,mes=message, date="2019-09-01 12:06:20", email=email)
Cant open a fucking support ticket with openshift bc they have so many Drupal errors im going to fucking kill myself.
Pip wont fucking work anynore. So i xant install fuckj g anythj g tuat i ne ejsjdheheh kiok me zujd1
Anyone notice how fucking difficult it is to install software from GitHub... well for amateurs mostly. I went through pretty much hell to simply install a spotify playlist downloader script from GitHub. Had I not have had Python installed I would have had to download that too. You Install Python, Google a guide to get the pip command up and running. Download the software. PIP it? Then you find out it uses 3 custom libraries that have to be installed separately. Oh that reminds me, u still need an IDE to open the script and figure that, on your own. Then the script is super buggy, expected though it was still in development. I have no idea where I am going with this. Point is ppl need to get better with hosting code at GitHub. And it wouldn't hurt to include a guide to installation in ReadMe.md OR Installation.md. Ok am done now xd5
hey peeps, 2 questions:
1. do you know about some kind of firewall/antivirus for pc that can just allow the user to accept/block an internet request , like no root firewall does for android.
I have been using that simple, beautiful piece of open source for last 2ish years. The way it sends a notification when an app tries to make an internet request(even in the background!) has helped me detect and remove so many viruses.
2. i am thinking of doing a factory reset on my windows. My laptop came loaded with win10 and office , and i don't have the keys for it( it shows a special partition having some backup of window i guess?). So i had a couple of thoughts:
- will my office get removed?[i don't want this]
- I created several other partitions( d,e,f,p) would they go back as a single C drive?[doesn't effect me as long as i can create them again]
- the languages and modules i installed via cmd(java/python/ruby/pip modules/git/etc), would they also get removed? [i really want that]
- i am probably thinking this won't happen, but is their a possibility that the recovery partition that my windows came with, would also get removed[ i don't want that]7
