Python

This is my recommended Python setup, as of Fall 2022. The Python landscape can be a confusing mess of overlapping tools that sometimes don't work well together. This is an effort to standardize our approach and environments.

Tools and helpful links:

  • Python docs: https://docs.python.org/3/
