Discover lesser-known Python libraries that are easy to install and use, cross-platform, and applicable to more than one domain.
The Python ecosystem is vast and far-reaching in both scope and depth. Starting out in this crazy, open-source forest is daunting, and even with years of experience, it still requires continual effort to keep up-to-date with the best libraries and techniques.
In this report we take a look at some of the lesser-known Python libraries and tools. Python itself already includes a huge number of high-quality libraries; collectively these are called the standard library. The standard library receives a lot of attention, but there are still some libraries within it that should be better known. We will start out by discussing several, extremely useful tools in the standard library that you may not know about.
