In the event you’ve ever used the Python programming language, or put in software program written in Python, you’ve in all probability used PyPI, even when you didn’t realise it on the time.

PyPI is brief for the Python Bundle Index, and it at present comprises slightly below 300,000 open supply add-on modules (290,614 of them after we checked [2021-03-07T00:10Z]).

You may obtain and set up any of those modules robotically simply by issuing a command equivalent to pip set up [nameofpackage], or by letting a software program installer fetch the lacking parts for you.

The complete record consists of, to place it plainly, some peculiar initiatives, with the primary 5 in alphanumeric order being…


     0
     0-._.-._.-._.-._.-._.-._.-0
     00000a
     0.0.1
     007

…and the ultimate 5 doing their easiest to be final on the record:
