Cool Python utility


#1

Hi all.

http://pycheesecake.org/
Look at this. Doesn’t it cool? Doesn’t we need something like it for our
Ruby?


The idea of the Cheesecake project is to rank Python packages based on
various empirical “kwalitee” factors, such as:

  • whether the package can be downloaded from the Python Package Index
    (PyPI)
    given its name

  • whether the package can be downloaded from a full URL

  • whether the package can be unpacked

  • whether the unpack directory is the same as the package name

  • whether the package can be installed into an alternate directory

  • existence of certain files such as README, INSTALL, LICENSE, setup.py
    etc.

  • existence of certain directories such as doc, test, demo, examples

  • percentage of modules/functions/classes/methods with docstrings

  • percentage of functions/methods that are unit tested (not currently
    implemented)

  • average pylint score for all non-test and non-demo modules


BTW, it something like rulint (Lint for Ruby) exists?

Victor.

This (from a few days ago) pretty much sums up my thoughts on the issue:
