Must learn python libraries for everyone

I’m mentioning twenty Python libraries list that will take you places in your journey with Python and also used by Data Scientists.

Let us see one by one-

  1. Pyglet

Pyglet is an excellent choice for an object-oriented programming interface in developing games. In fact, it also finds use in developing other visually-rich applications for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux. In the 90s, when people were bored, they resorted to playing Minecraft on their computers. Pyglet is the engine behind Minecraft.

2. PyGame

PyGame provides an extremely easy interface to the Simple Directmedia Library (SDL) platform-independent graphic, audio, and input libraries.

3. Python Twisted

An event-driven networking engine, Twisted is written in Python, and licensed under the open-source MIT license.

4. Pillow

Pillow is a friendly fork of PIL (Python Imaging Library), but is more user-friendly. If you work with images, Pillow is your best friend.

5. pywin32

This provides useful methods and class for interaction with Windows, as the name suggests.

6. wxPython

It is a wrapper around wxWidgets for Python.

7. iPython

iPython Python Library has an architecture that facilitates parallel and distributed computing. With it, you can develop, execute, debug, and monitor parallel applications.

8. Nose

Nose delivers an alternate test discovery and running process for unittest. This intends to mimic py.test’s behavior as much as it can.

9. Flask

A web framework, Flask is built with a small core and many extensions.

10. SymPy

It is an open-source library for symbolic math. With very simple and comprehensible code that is easily extensible, SymPy is a full-fledged Computer Algebra System (CAS). It is written in Python, and hence does not need external libraries.

11. Fabric

Along with being a library, Fabric is a command-line tool for streamlining the use of SSH for application deployment or systems administration tasks. With it, you can execute local or remote shell commands, upload/download files, and even prompt running user for input, or abort execution.

12. PyGTK

PyGTK lets you easily create programs with a GUI (Graphical User Interface) with Python.

13. Matplotlib

Matplotlib helps with data analyzing, and is a numerical plotting library. We talked about it in Python for Data Science.

14. Pandas

Like we’ve said before, Pandas is a must for data-science. It provides fast, expressive, and flexible data structures to easily (and intuitively) work with structured (tabular, multidimensional, potentially heterogeneous) and time-series data.

15. Requests

Requests is a Python Library that lets you send HTTP/1.1 requests, add headers, form data, multipart files, and parameters with simple Python dictionaries. It also lets you access the response data in the same way.

16. NumPy

It has advanced math functions and a rudimentary scientific computing package.

17. SQLAlchemy

SQLAlchemy is a library with well-known enterprise-level patterns. It was designed for efficient and high-performing database-access.

18. BeautifulSoup

It may be a bit slow, BeautifulSoup has an excellent XML- and HTML- parsing library for beginners.

19. SciPy

Next up is SciPy, one of the libraries we have been talking so much about. It has a number of user-friendly and efficient numerical routines. These include routines for optimization and numerical integration.

20. Scrapy

If your motive is fast, high-level screen scraping and web crawling, go for Scrapy. You can use it for purposes from data mining to monitoring and automated testing.
