Thanks for this suggestion! I missing it!
But at this point I would receive all the packages published by mail…it seems a bit too much.
Let me explain my request:
When I search on google a python package (but it also happens for other languages, like Go and Rust, which are the last languages I’m using besides Python :-)), I’m presented with a page that Google thinks is better for my search . I’ll give a practical example.
One of the latest projects I’ve been working on, has a graphql backend.
If I search “python graphql” on Google, various search items appear, but one of the first is the official GraphQL site, where I immediately notice the bindings for my language:
Perfect! They are sorted by number of stars on Github. Now I do a comparison on Pypi and notice a package level discrepancy.
I don’t know what to choose because I don’t have any user experience with these libraries and above all I don’t have satisfactory documentation in some packages to avoid running into semantic programming bugs.
I decide to change language. I do a quick search on the official Go forum. I find the most used package with links to documentation and user experiences.
I do the same thing for Rust. I find the same things here too.
Here, it would be nice if everyone, as also happens in the other forums, could publish their work and the users of a specific forum of the language like this, could tell their experience with that package, extend the official documentation, publish their projects or examples based on such packages.
At that point, you have only one research point and you would find the right package for you, in a few minutes of research.
@CAM-Gerlach, for my graphql project I spent a week googling and pypi researching, spending hours installing, understanding, studying and implementing packages. Also, in python no nosql database packages have the same interface. Everyone does what they like, something that doesn’t happen in other languages…but that’s another thing and I’ve already opened a discussion on this forum.
If you had an announcements session, you would have a single point of to find with feedback from people who can tell you about their experience.
Open source is also based on this, if we consider source == ideas.
I hope I explained myself better.
Anyway, thanks for your feedback!
