re: Python: Still in favor? VIEW POST


Have been loosely using Python ever since the late 1990s mostly as a more powerful replacement for bash scripts and less "painful" substitute for Perl code in more complex administration and automation tasks. Started looking more into that, again, with the advent of docker containers and the fact that by now deploying more complex Python setups across various systems became considerably easier. Most of my current tasks using Python involve either runtime automation (which are dirty command-line scripts for doing obscure things in our infrastructure) or RESTful microservices (using flask or webpy). Still is fun in many situations, even though (compared to Java which we still heavily use for larger projects), some things are bit of a pain...
