For a while I've been working on yet another web-based publishing system, called Publ, which I use to run my website. It's at the point where the publishing core itself is stable and provides a lot of stuff, but I'd love to see more people use it to manage their sites, and also for people to build tools to use along with it -- such as a web-based post editor, which I'd really like to build but I definitely don't have the energy/time/spoons for.

Publ itself also has a bunch of open issues which would be great if I could get help on them. :)

I love these posts! Each of them brings me at least one contributor.

And as always I promote our linter: wemake-python-styleguide. It is the strictest and most opinionated python linter ever!

We care about bringing more collaborators to the project. So, we do several things to improve your developer experience:

  1. We separate tasks for beginners from more complex tasks, so everyone can find something to work on!
  2. We write friendly internal documentation
  3. We write a lot of tests to be sure that everything works. Do not be afraid to break something!
  4. We use mypy to check types. Jump right in if you are existed about typing!

And of course the core team is happy to provide any required help!

Enforce "There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it" rule to coding and naming styles

That's a hilarious joke from python. notice the --, it allows for looseness. I deduce you are enforcing looseness

I have a really modest browser extension, ZeroWiki, which redirects any request to to some other Wikipedia mirror of your choice. This extension is extremely useful for people in countries where Wikipedia is blocked, e.g. in Turkey. It doesn't really need too much work, just some visual enhancements for cross-platform compatibility and usability.

If you know of a trustworthy Wikipedia mirror that you think should be listed here, please send me a pull request or open an issue so that I can manage it. Conversely, if you think one of the mirrors should not be trusted and/or if you have experienced anything that led you to think your privacy was being violated, please let me know as soon as possible so I can remove that mirror from this list.

ZeroWiki is an independent project and is not affiliated with any of the available mirrors, including 0wikipedia and wikizero.

If you're interested in getting behind the scenes of web frameworks and async in Python, Bocadillo has just got a bunch of fresh issues for new exciting features. :-)

Non-coders also welcome! If you've got design skills, I'd be excited to discuss ideas on a new logo. Some issues are also related to writing docs, i.e. explaining how to test an async web app.

I'll be glad to discuss ideas with new contributors and help them get started. Drop a message on our chat if you need anything!

Bocadillo is a Python web framework that provides a sane toolkit for quickly building performant web applications and services, while encouraging best practices and keeping developer experience in mind.

Under the hood, it uses the Starlette ASGI toolkit and the lightning-fast uvicorn ASGI server.

Read the documentation

Quick start

Install it:

pip install bocadillo

Build something:

import bocadillo
api = bocadillo.API()
async def index(req, res)
    # Use a template from the ./templates directory 
    res.html = await api.template("index.html")

async def greet(req, res, person): = {"message": f"Hi, {person}!"}

if __name__ == "__main__":



Make requests!
