    • Michael Fogleman
    • Even if you didn’t have time or energy to do the 2018 AoC, you can learn from other peoples solutions. Here’s one set written up in a nice blog post.
    Michael #2: Python Lands on the Windows 10 App Store

    • Python Software Foundation recently released Python 3.7 as an app on the official Windows 10 app store.
    • Python 3.7 is now available to install from the Microsoft Store, meaning you no longer need to manually download and install the app from the official Python website.
    • there is one limitation. “Because of restrictions on Microsoft Store apps, Python scripts may not have full write access to shared locations such as TEMP and the registry.
    • Discussed with Steve Dower over on Talk Python 191

    Michael #4: Python maintainability score via Wily

    • via Anthony Shaw
    • A Python application for tracking, reporting on timing and complexity in tests
    • Easiest way to calculate it is with wily https://github.com/tonybaloney/wily … the metrics are ‘maintainability.mi’ and ‘maintainability.rank’ for a numeric and the A-F scale.
      • Build an index: wily build src
      • Inspect report: wily report file
      • Graph: wily graph file metric

    Michael #6: fastlogging

    • via Robert Young
    • A faster replacement of the standard logging module with a mostly compatible API.
    • For a single log file it is ~5x faster and for rotating log file ~13x faster.
    • It comes with the following features:
      • (colored, if colorama is installed) logging to console
      • logging to file (maximum file size with rotating/history feature can be configured)
      • old log files can be compressed (the compression algorithm can be configured)
      • count same successive messages within a 30s time frame and log only once the message with the counted value.
      • log domains
      • log to different files
      • writing to log files is done in (per file) background threads, if configured
      • configure callback function for custom detection of same successive log messages
      • configure callback function for custom message formatter
      • configure callback function for custom log writer
