This document covers using the Distutils to distribute your Python modules, concentrating on the role of developer/distributor: if you’re looking for information on installing Python modules, you should refer to the Installing Python Modules chapter. 1.1.

1. An Introduction to Distutils — Python v2.7 documentation

Concepts & Terminology Using the Distutils is quite simple, both for module developers and for users/administrators installing third-party modules. As a developer, your responsibilities (apart from writing solid, well-documented and well-tested code, of course!) Are: write a setup script ( by convention)(optional) write a setup configuration filecreate a source distribution(optional) create one or more built (binary) distributions Each of these tasks is covered in this document. Not all module developers have access to a multitude of platforms, so it’s not always feasible to expect them to create a multitude of built distributions.

10 Reasons Python Rocks for Research — Hoyt Koepke. The following is an account of my own experience with Python.

10 Reasons Python Rocks for Research — Hoyt Koepke

Because that experience has been so positive, it is an unabashed attempt to promote the use of Python for general scientific research and development. About four years ago, I dropped MATLAB in favor of Python as my primary language for coding research projects. This article is a personal account of how rewarding I have found that experience. As I describe in the next sections, the variety and quality of Python’s features has spoiled me. Even in small scripts, I now rely on Python’s numerous data structures, classes, nested functions, iterators, the flexible function calling syntax, an extensive kitchen-sink-included standard library, great scientific libraries, and outstanding documentation.

Using the Cython Compiler to write fast Python code

Cython is the missing linkbetween the simplicity of Pythonand the speed of C / C++ / Fortran. Package Index : Theano 0.3.0. Optimizing compiler for evaluating mathematical expressions on CPUs and GPUs.

Package Index : Theano 0.3.0

Latest Version: 0.6.0 Theano is a Python library that allows you to define, optimize, and efficiently evaluate mathematical expressions involving multi-dimensional arrays. John Anderson ( sontek ) - Debugging Python with pdb. Being a great debugger is almost as important as being great at writing the software.

John Anderson ( sontek ) - Debugging Python with pdb

I think I spend just as much time debugging programs as I do writing them. pdb (python debugger) is a very powerful tool for interactively debugging the state of your application and inspecting portions of your code. For the rest of this post we are going to be debugging a file called with the following code: # fib.pydef main(): low = 0 high = 1 for i in range(10): print high new_high = get_new_high(low, high) low = high high = new_high def get_new_high(low, high): return low + high if __name__ == '__main__': main() There are many ways to get your application to drop into pdb, the first way is to import pdb in the file you want to debug and put pdb.set_trace() on any lines you want to debug.

So we are going to change our file to look like this: You will see it shows you what method its in and the next line its going to run: Features of the Standard Library.
