Python Projects

As a programming language, Python is the foundation of many software projects producing things like applications, libraries, modules and packages. Since so many projects exist, it can be difficult to find one which is concentrating on a particular topic of interest, but there are several starting points:

  • Applications - a list of Python-based applications

  • UsefulModules - libraries, modules and packages

  • PublishingPythonModules - places where modules are often publicised

  • PythonMed - Python Med (along the lines of DebianMed) presents packages that are associated with medicine, pre-clinical research, life science and bio-informatics.

  • SourceForge hosts open source Python-based software projects:

    • Browse for projects written in Python

  • Python Source is a directory of open source python projects.

  • Packageupdates.org lists "top" and "hot" Python packages. The site can also send email notifications for package updates.

  • PyDoc.net provides package and source code navigation with advanced search features.

Useful code does not always exist in the context of a project - smaller fragments may be published in various places:

Ideas for New Projects

Sometimes there is no project addressing a certain need, or perhaps a project has been started and requires help to reach its objectives.

Statistics on Projects
