Tinker and play around with source code, that’s the programmer’s way of life.

So much has been done by Python developers around the world, promoting it in the Open Source World

Let’s get down to some worthy Python OpenSource projects that may have slipped your radar.

1. Pipenv

Pipenv is a packaging and environment tool that python programmers use to create virtual environments for projects while also updating package dependencies. Combining Pipfile, virtualenv, and pip, Pipenv gives you an advanced workflow with easy to understand commands.

Python Development Workflow for Humans.
