Useful Modules, Packages and Libraries

The intent of this page is to list some of the most commonly used Python modules, in the hope that it will provide useful recommendations for other programmers (especially beginners). Remember that in addition to the listings below, there are other directories of Python modules - see PublishingPythonModules for details.

Be warned that this list is subjective by its very nature - it is only intended as a helpful guide. It is not definitive in any way, nor should it discourage developers from developing their own modules.

Database

Game Development

GUI

  • PyGtk - Bindings for the cross-platform Gtk toolkit.

  • PyQt - Bindings for the cross-platform Qt framework.

  • TkInter - The traditional Python user interface toolkit.

  • WxPython - wxWidgets bindings for Python supporting PythonCard, ["Wax"] and other frameworks.

  • GUI Programming is, in many cases, a matter of taste. See a more extensive list on the GuiProgramming page.

HTML Forms

HTML Parser

ID3 Handling

Plotting

The SciPy [http://scipy.org/Topical_Software#head-b98ffdb309ccce4e4504a25ea75b5c806e4897b6 topical software] page has a longer list.

Scientific

  • [http://vpython.org/ Visual Python] - Offers real-time 3D output, is easily usable by novice programmers, excellent for physics.

  • [http://www.scipy.org/ SciPy] - Includes modules for graphics and plotting, optimization, integration, special functions, signal and i* mage processing, genetic algorithms, ODE solvers, and others.

  • [http://www.omegahat.org/RSPython/index.html Python Bindings for R] - R is a well known, open source (GPL 2) statistical package. RSPython provides the ability to access R from python, and vice-versa.

Standard Library Enhancements

Threading

Web Development

XML Processing

Editorial Notes

Please avoid listing modules where...

  • You are one of the developers (and you just want to promote your work somewhere).
  • The modules in question do not have widespread approval or usage.

If you do want to make people aware of a module, package or library (perhaps your own), consider submitting it to one or more of the directories mentioned in PublishingPythonModules, perhaps also adding it to the topic-specific part of this site (eg. WebProgramming, GuiProgramming).

Do list modules that:

  • Get recommended often in the Tutor or comp.lang.python lists

Please provide a short description for each module. Try to put each module in the category that matches its "main" audience, since a module might fall into a number of categories.
