View Full Version : Seeking a list of Python sourcecode resources

December 25th, 2010, 11:45 AM
Hi there, I am learning Python with my spare time and I envision that I will initiate a project that facilitates business agenda planning and customer relationship management. But I really don't want to reinvent the wheel, especially not to do so because ill-informed. Unfortunately I'm new to the open-source community so it's still just an abstract concept in my mind rather than palpable experiences. Can you give me some thoughts as to where I should go and check the existing source code for potential duplicate, and look for some useful components that I can improve on, preferably written in Python? Can anybody provide kind of a list that a programmer normally resort to? Any thoughts would be appreciated, thanks.

I would first search on http://sourceforge.net/.

as python is an interpreted language every python program is open source

the standard library source you can be found in /usr/lib/python*

and then there is also the "cpan" for python:

Thanks. How do you usually go about searching component that might be relevant to your project? By just using keyword query? Or there is some hidden techniques?
