Custom Homescreen Icons with Pythonista
I can think of a couple of use cases for this:

Use a custom icon for a web app if you don't like its default one (or it doesn't specify an icon at all).

Launch a web app in full-screen mode that normally wouldn't (I find this especially useful for some shops, like Audible).

Dial a contact's number (using a tel: URL) or create a new email (mailto:) by tapping on the photo of a person (the icon is cropped/resized automatically, so you don't have to create a square image first).

Launch a Pythonista script directly from the home screen, or open an often-used document in Editorial.

Open the maps app with navigation directions to a favorite location, perhaps using a Maps screenshot or a photo as the icon.

Django and Flask: Why and When To Use Each
In this video Eric Schles, Dev evangelist at Syncano, gives a compare and contrast talk on Django and Flask frameworks. Eric walks through some strengths of Flask: low overhead, easy to set up, good for prototyping etc., and some weaknesses: poor built-in debugging tools, not built to scale well, not strongly object-oriented. On the Django side of things, Eric points to strengths: object oriented, production level code under a deadline, and the benefits of the admin panel. However, Eric cautions viewers about the high overhead of set up and warns beginners about challenges.

Making a Little Planet Panorma using Python and Scikit Image
Recently I shared a post on G+ which had a Google “photosphere” transformed into the “little planet” projection. This post (and associated IPython notebook) will walk you through the way I created the planet image using scikit-image. This was my first steps with scikit-image since previously I had been using OpenCV. Unfortunately OpenCV is a bit of a pain to install and so I was looking for a pip-installable library with the functionality I required.

PlotDevice: a Python-based graphics environment for the Mac
PlotDevice is a Macintosh application that lets you write Python scripts to generate 2D graphics using simple drawing commands.
   Under the hood, your code drives the system's Quartz imaging engine, giving your scripts the same graphical power as a full-fledged Cocoa app. Your code can combine basic geometric shapes, typography, freeform Bézier curves, and a panoply of image formats. This omnivorousness makes PlotDevice ideal for both workaday tasks like image-processing as well as more exotic
uses ranging from procedural texture generation to data visualization.

Latexify your matplotlib plots for publishing - Nipun Batra
Every time I would prepare a matplotlib graph for a paper, I would iteratively adjust the figure size, the font size, scaling in LaTeX. This turns to be a tedious process. Fortunately, when along with Jack and Oliver, I was writing our nilmtk paper, Jack demonstrated a function to "latexify" plots. This function would take care of font sizes and scaling, so that in one go one could generate a plot and stick in LaTeX. In this post I'll illustrate this technique to save all that iterative effort and make plots look nicer.

You are indeed describing a classification problem, which can be solved with machine learning.

In this problem, your features are the words in the description. You should use the Bag Of Words model - which basically says that the words and their number of occurances for each word is what matters to the classification process.

Introduction — SciPy v0.13.0 Reference Guide
SciPy is a collection of mathematical algorithms and convenience functions built on the Numpy extension of Python. It adds significant power to the interactive Python session by providing the user with high-level commands and classes for manipulating and visualizing data. With SciPy an interactive Python session becomes a data-processing and system-prototyping environment rivaling sytems such as MATLAB, IDL, Octave, R-Lab, and SciLab.

[Numpy-discussion] Numerical Recipes (for Python)?
There is no Numerical Recipes for python. The main reason there isn't a NR for python is that practically everything they discuss is already implemented as python libraries, and most of it is in numpy and/or scipy. (Their algorithms are also not suitable for pure-python implementation, but that's a whole other discussion.)

An introduction to Numpy and Scipy
NumPy and SciPy are open-source add-on modules to Python that provide common mathematical and numerical routines in pre-compiled, fast functions. These are growing into highly mature packages that provide functionality that meets, or perhaps exceeds, that associated with common commercial software like MatLab. The NumPy (Numeric Python) package provides basic routines for manipulating large arrays and matrices of numeric data. The SciPy (Scientific Python) package extends the functionality of NumPy with a substantial collection of useful algorithms, like minimization, Fourier transformation, regression, and other applied mathematical techniques.

Detecting duplicate images using Python
A frequently used solution to identify if a given file already exists in a large collection of files is to calculate a hash for each individual file in the dataset, store the hashes in a database and then when we want to locate a particular file calculate the hash for that file and look up to see if it’s hash value exists in the database.

Bleach is an HTML sanitizing library that escapes or strips markup and attributes based on a white list. Bleach can also linkify text safely, applying filters that Django's urlize filter cannot, and optionally setting rel attributes, even on links already in the text.

Bleach is intended for sanitizing text from untrusted sources. If you find yourself jumping through hoops to allow your site administrators to do lots of things, you're probably outside the use cases. Either trust those users, or don't.

Because it relies on html5lib, Bleach is as good as modern browsers at dealing with weird, quirky HTML fragments. And any of Bleach's methods will fix unbalanced or mis-nested tags.

The version on GitHub is the most up-to-date and contains the latest bug fixes. You can find full documentation on ReadTheDocs.

Open Sourcing a Python Project the Right Way
Most Python developers have written at least one tool, script, library or framework that others would find useful. My goal in this article is to make the process of open-sourcing existing Python code as clear and painless as possible. And I don't simply mean, "create GitHub repo, git push, post on Reddit, and call it a day." By the end of this article, you'll be able to take an existing code base and transform it into an open source project that encourages both use and contribution.

Steven Loria | Hosting static Flask sites for free on Github Pages
This past weekend, I released, a website with guides for installing and using various tools. It’s a static site powered by Flask and hosted for free on Github Pages.

Static Flask sites are a big win because:

They’re fast.
If you need your site to be dynamic in the future, the transition will be easy.
There are well-developed extensions for doing this. Here I’ll demonstrate Frozen-Flask (for building static content) and Flask-FlatPages (for writing pages in Markdown).

Navigating the Postmodern Python World
If there is one defining feature of modern Python, it’s simply that is that the definition of Python itself is becoming increasingly blurred. Many projects over the last few years have taken larger and larger leaps to extend Python and reconstruct what “Python” itself means.

At the same time on there are variety of technologies encroaching on Python’s niche, each bringing a variety of advantages:

Go - ( Goroutines, Types, Interfaces )
Rust - ( Traits, Speed, Types )
Julia - ( Speed, Types, Multiple Dispatch )
Scala - ( Traits, Speed, Types )
Clojure ( Metaprogramming, DSLs, Protocols )
This is a short field-guide to the various Python responses to these technologies and new libraries and models:

Time Warp - Modifying Time Machine's behavior
Time Machine has been an integral component of my backup system since its inception in OS X 10.5. Despite its utility, I dislike how backup snapshots are handled when Time Machine’s hard drive is full. To make efficient use of hard drive space, Time Machine keeps hourly backups for a single day, daily backups for a month, and finally weekly backups until the backup drive is full. Once full, Time Machine operates as a First-in, First-out queue (FIFO)—the oldest snapshot is dequeued to allow an incoming snapshot to be enqueued. This post is about my backup tool called Time Warp and how I use it to modify Time Machine’s backup behavior using weighted reservoir sampling. I built Time Warp to preserve important backup snapshots and prevent Time Machine from deleting them.

Python Descriptors Demystified
Hopefully, however, this example gives you an idea of what descriptors can be useful for -- they provide a way to organize property logic into isolated classes. If you find yourself repeating the same logic across several properties, that should be a clue to consider whether refactoring that code into a descriptor is worthwhile.

Sublime Text Ctrl+P Like Fuzzy Matching In Few Lines of Python
There were a few people curious in the ST forums on how Sublime Text’s fuzzy matching works.
In reality, I don’t know either. There were some interesting solutions given, but I haven’t researched their methods and workability.
I needed to implement this for a small project I’m working on. I went with a solution that worked decently (I think I saw this within a JS fuzzy searching library). I’m not claiming it to be the best or the fastest (far from it, actually).
However, just in case you need to implement something like this, this might come in handy.
