Rye. Armin Ronacher’s take on a Python packaging tool. There are a lot of interesting ideas in this one—it’s written in Rust, configured using pyproject.toml and has some very strong opinions, including completely hiding pip from view and insisting you use “rye add package” instead. Notably, it doesn’t use the system Python at all: instead, it downloads a pre-compiled standalone Python from Gregory Szorc’s python-build-standalone project—the same approach I used for the Datasette Desktop Electron app.
Armin warns that this is just an exploration, with no guarantees of future maintenance—and even has an issue open titled “Should Rye exist?” # 24th April 2023, 4:02 am
My strong hunch is that the GIL does not need removing, if a) subinterpreters have their own GILs and b) an efficient way is provided to pass (some) data between subinterpreters lock free and c) we find good patterns to make working with subinterpreters work.
mitsuhiko/insta (via) I asked for recommendations on Twitter for testing libraries in other languages that would give me the same level of delight that I get from pytest. Two people pointed me to insta by Armin Ronacher, a Rust testing framework for “snapshot testing” which automatically records reference values to your repository, so future tests can spot if they change. # 31st October 2022, 1:06 am
Flask 0.1 Released. Armin’s Flask (a Python microframework built around Werkzeug and Jinja2) is looking pretty solid for a two week old project—extensive documentation, comprehensive unit test support (and example applications with unit tests) and some very tidy API design. # 16th April 2010, 5:12 pm
What’s New In Python 3.1. Lots of stuff, but the best bits are an ordered dictionary type (congrats, Armin), a Counter class for counting unique items in an iterable (I do this on an almost daily basis) and a bunch of performance improvements including a rewrite of the Python 3.0 IO system in C. # 28th June 2009, 3:02 pm
