Simon Willison’s Weblog


My User Experience Porting Off (via) PyOxidizer maintainer Gregory Szorc provides a detailed account of his experience trying to figure out how to switch from to pyproject.toml for his zstandard Python package.

This kind of detailed usability feedback is incredibly valuable for project maintainers, especially when the user encountered this many different frustrations along the way. It’s like the written version of a detailed usability testing session.
