Python for the .NET developer Transcripts
Chapter: Course conclusion
Lecture: Packages and PyPI review
0:00 The next thing that we talked about
0:01 were all the incredible external packages
0:04 that we could use.
0:05 .NET has NuGet, Python has PyPI.
0:09 Right now at the time of this recording
0:10 there's over 200,000 packages on PyPI
0:13 and we were just shy of that when we took
0:15 this screen shot and put this presentation together.
0:17 But we're well past that now
0:19 well into the 200,000s.
0:21 There's so many amazing things, and we actually worked
0:23 with a bunch of them.
0:24 We worked with Beautiful Soup, with Requests
0:26 with httpx, with Jupyter, JupyterLab, NumPy
0:30 Matplotlib, I could go on, and on, and on.
0:32 We also talked about awesome Python
0:34 which is a place that aggregates
0:36 some of the better libraries out there.
0:39 We install everything from here via PIP
0:41 pipinstall httpx, for example.
0:45 Make sure you run that with an activated
0:47 virtual environment, or it's going into
0:48 your system Python, not your project Python.
0:51 Finally, note on pronunciation, remember this
0:53 is pie PI, not pie pie, that's actually
0:56 a JIT compiling runtime for Python
0:58 that's an alternative to CPython.
1:01 Pie PI, PyPI is awesome, it is one of the things
1:04 that truly makes Python stand out and above
1:07 a lot of other languages.
