Pylint - Python source code analyser

Pylint is a Python source code analyser which looks for programming errors, helps to enforce a coding standard, and other such. This quality checker for Python programming includes several features such as coding standard where it checks for the length of line codes, error detection, refactoring by detecting the duplicated code, Pylint is shipped with Pyreverse which creates UML diagrams for python code.

Zerynth enables Python for Microcontrollers & middleware for IoT and Industry 4.0

Zerynth speeds up IoT and embedded development to the huge community of Python programmers. With Zerynth you can program in Python or hybrid C/Python language the most popular 32-bit microcontrollers, and connect them to the top Cloud infrastructures.

Zerynth allows a mixed C/Python programming environment. This kind of “hybrid” programming is extremely powerful in scenarios where the project needs low-level code for time-critical tasks while keeping Python flexibility and readability for not time-critical sections.  For more info

Walrus Operator in Python 3.8

One of the biggest highlights of Python 3.8.0 is a new feature for assignment expressions known as the Walrus Operator.

"There is new syntax := that assigns values to variables as part of a larger expression," the Python 3.8.0 release notes state.

"It is affectionately known as 'the walrus operator' due to its resemblance to the eyes and tusks of a walrus."

In this example, the assignment expression helps avoid calling len() twice:

if (n := len(a)) > 10:
    print(f"List is too long ({n} elements, expected <= 10)")
