See what the GitHub community is most excited about .


GitHub uses git which is a distributed version control system written by the creator of Linux, Linus Torvalds. Almost all open source projects utilize GitHub for project management, mainly because it’s free and includes nifty features like wikis and issue trackers for better documentation and feedback. let’s have look on top 20 Github Repo on Python to see what community is excited about to showcase it Real World!


Top 20 Trending Python Repositories

Github Trending Python Repositories does need any introduction as this is constantly updated with the curated list of most sought open-source projects which the developer community is most excited about.

“Trending Repos” is based on various factors such as how many times it has been starred by GitHub users/most fork or weekly & monthly commits. In this blog post, we have explored the top 20 trending repositories based on the Python programming language.

Following a new GitHub project is an import part of ‘Developer World’ as it provides a way to improve productivity by using modern and approach. Not only this…community feedback & issues reported helps you out to select the set of tools for future or ongoing development.

Scrapy has a healthy and active community which helps you ask for code reviews and advice for your projects.


Certbot is EFF’s tool ( )to obtain certs from Let’s Encrypt and (optionally) auto-enable HTTPS on your server.

Certbot is part of EFF’s effort to encrypt the entire Internet. Secure communication over the Web relies on HTTPS, which requires the use of a digital certificate that lets browsers verify the identity of web servers (e.g., is that really Web servers obtain their certificates from trusted third parties called certificate authorities (CAs).

Check with your hosting provider for documentation about uploading certificates or using certificates issued by Let’s Encrypt.

Certbot and Let’s Encrypt can automate away the pain and let you turn on and manage HTTPS with simple commands.

Using Certbot and Let’s Encrypt is free, so there’s no need to arrange payment.

pytorch / pytorch

An open source deep learning platform that provides a seamless path from research prototyping to production deployment.

Deep integration into Python allows popular libraries and packages to be used for easily writing neural network layers in Python.

PyTorch ( ) is a Python package that provides two high-level features:

  • Tensor computation (like NumPy) with strong GPU acceleration
  • Deep neural networks built on a tape-based autograd system

You can reuse your favourite Python packages such as NumPy, SciPy and Cython to extend PyTorch when needed.

Still in Beta Phase so Expect some adventures and rough edges.

ageitgey / face_recognition
