Data Science

Great Expectations Great Expectations is a leading tool for validating, documenting, and profiling, your data to maintain quality and improve communication between teams.

PDF Plumber

Plumb a PDF for detailed information about each char, rectangle, line, et cetera β€” and easily extract text and tables.

PDF Plumb Example


pyjanitor is a project that extends Pandas with a verb-based API, providing convenient data cleaning routines for repetitive tasks.

Pandas Vet

pandas-vet is a plugin for flake8 that provides opinionated linting for pandas code.

NB2XLS Convert Jupyter notebooks to Excel Spreadsheets (xlsx), through a new 'Download As' option or via nbconvert on the command line. NB2XLS Preview


A light weight, zero dependency (only standard libs used), to the point (no bells and whistles) Microsoft Excel reader/writer python 2.7-3+ library. Example Code

Why pylightxl over pandas/openpyxl

  • (compatibility +1, small lib +1) pylightxl has no external dependencies (only uses python built-in standard libs). (compatibility +1) pylightxl was written to be compatible for python 2.7-3+ under one single pylightxl version. It does not impose rules on users to switch versions.
  • (small lib +1) pylightxl was written to simply read/write, thereby making the library small without any bells or whistles which makes it easy to compile with PyInstaller and other packagers
  • (user friendly +1) pylightxl was written to be as pythonic and easy to use as possible. Core developers actively survey Stack Overflow questions on working with excel files to tailor the API for most common problems.
  • (see xlrd before pylightxl) Note that the xlrd library is very similar in values to pylightxl, but with much more functionality! Please take a look at xlrd to see if it is a good fit for your project. So why pick pylightxl over xlrd that has much more to offer? Currently, xlrd does not have any active developers. Pylightxl is a new library aimed to help solve current excel data issues (as surveyed by Stack Overflow), please submit your suggestions to help improve this library together.

Data Visualisation


Pylustrator offers an interactive interface to find the best way to present your data in a figure for publication. Added formatting an styling can be saved by automatically generated code. To compose multiple figures to panels, pylustrator can compose different subfigures to a single figure.

Yellow Brick Yellowbrick extends the Scikit-Learn API to make model selection and hyperparameter tuning easier. Under the hood, it’s using Matplotlib. Yellow Brick Preview

Thinc A refreshing functional take on deep learning, compatible with your favorite libraries. From the makers of spaCy, Prodigy & FastAPI

Keras Gym Plug-n-play reinforcement learning with OpenAI Gym and Keras Keras Gym GIF


GeoAlchemy Using SQLAlchemy with Spatial Databases.

GeoAlchemy 2 provides extensions to SQLAlchemy for working with spatial databases.

GeoAlchemy 2 focuses on PostGIS. PostGIS 1.5 and PostGIS 2 are supported.

Command Line Interfaces (CLIs)

Python Fire ``PythonFire is a library for automatically generating command line interfaces (CLIs) from absolutely any `Python` object.


Clize is an argument parser for Python. You can use Clize as an alternative to argparse if you want an even easier way to create command-line interfaces.


Typer, build great CLIs. Easy to code. Based on Python type hints.

Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs)


I personally love Gooey and have it installed in almost every project lately. Gooey turns (almost) any Python command line program into a full GUI application with one line.

I have also done a tutorial blog post on Gooey as well at:

Gooey Example

Eel GUI Eel is a little Python library for making simple Electron-like offline HTML/JS GUI apps, with full access to Python capabilities and libraries.

Eel Demo


PySimpleGUI enables anyone with a week of PySimpleGUI education or more to develop an entirely custom desktop GUI application. The underlying GUI frameworks supported include tkinter, Qt, WxPython and Remi. PySimpleGUI code can be run on any of these underlying frameworks with little or often no modification to the source code.

Unlike other simplified GUI pacakges, PySimpleGUI has a rich palette of widgets that are not dumbed down and can be assembled into any configuration desired, resulting in applications that look and operate as if written directly in tkinter, Qt, etc. Simple defines the ease of writing the programs, not the class of problems that are capable of being solved. 100's of demo programs are provided to give programmers a jump start on integrating with other packages such as OpenCV, Matplotlib. There are over 500 GitHub projects currently using PySimpleGUI.

A couple recent projects include:

A series of Rainmeter-style "Desktop Widgets":

PSG CPU Cores Scrolling

A photo and video colorizer:


QUICK A real quick GUI generator for click. Inspired by Gooey, the GUI generator for classical Python argparse-based command line programs.

Attrs Python Classes Without Boilerplate

PyOxidiser PyOxidizer is a utility for producing binaries that embed Python. The over-arching goal of PyOxidizer is to make complex packaging and distribution problems simple so application maintainers can focus on building applications instead of toiling with build systems and packaging tools.

Python Date Utils

The dateutil module provides powerful extensions to the standard datetime module, available in Python.


A library for compiling excel spreadsheets to Python code & visualizing them as a graph


Data validation and settings management using python type annotations.


Simplifies creation of data classes from dictionaries. Converting from dict to dataclass is trivial for trivial cases: x = MyClass(**data_as_dict).
