Work in progress. If you'd like to help, please do. There's a lot of work to be done.

This guide is currently under heavy development. This opinionated guide exists to provide both novice and expert Python developers a best practice handbook to the installation, configuration, and usage of Python on a daily basis.

Topics include:

  • Platform and version-specific installations
  • Py2app, Py2exe, bbfreeze, pyInstaller
  • Pip
  • Numpy, scipy, statpy, pyplot, matplotlib
  • Virtualenv
  • Fabric
  • Exhaustive module recommendations, grouped by topic/purpose
  • Which libraries to use for what
  • Server configurations & tools for various web frameworks
  • Documentation: writing it
  • Testing: Jenkins & tox guides
  • How to easily interface hg from git

If you aren't fond of reading reStructuredText, there is an almost up-to-date HTML version at docs.python-guide.org.
