Keras is a high-level neural networks API, written in Python and capable of running on top of TensorFlow, CNTK, or Theano. It was developed with a focus on enabling fast experimentation. Being able to go from idea to result with the least possible delay is key to doing good research.
Allows for easy and fast prototyping (through user friendliness, modularity, and extensibility).
Supports both convolutional networks and recurrent networks, as well as combinations of the two.
Runs seamlessly on CPU and GPU.
User friendliness. Keras is an API designed for human beings, not machines. It puts user experience front and center. Keras follows best practices for reducing cognitive load: it offers consistent & simple APIs, it minimizes the number of user actions required for common use cases, and it provides clear and actionable feedback upon user error.
Modularity. A model is understood as a sequence or a graph of standalone, fully-configurable modules that can be plugged together with as few restrictions as possible. In particular, neural layers, cost functions, optimizers, initialization schemes, activation functions, regularization schemes are all standalone modules that you can combine to create new models.
Easy extensibility. New modules are simple to add (as new classes and functions), and existing modules provide ample examples. To be able to easily create new modules allows for total expressiveness, making Keras suitable for advanced research.
Work with Python. No separate models configuration files in a declarative format. Models are described in Python code, which is compact, easier to debug, and allows for ease of extensibility
Webware for Python. Webware for Python is an object-oriented, Python web application framework. The suite uses well known design patterns and includes a fast application server, servlets, Python Server Pages (PSP), object-relational mapping, Task Scheduling, Session Management, and many other features.
Webware for Python is a suite of programming tools for constructing web-based applications in Python. It features:
Traditional web development tools:
Python-based Server Pages
Object-relational mapping (ORM)
Webware for Python is well proven and platform-independent. It is compatible with multiple web servers, database servers, and operating systems.
Scikit-learn (formerly scikits.learn) is a free software machine learning library for the Python programming language. It features various classification, regression and clustering algorithms including support vector machines, random forests, gradient boosting, k-means and DBSCAN, and is designed to interoperate with the Python numerical and scientific libraries NumPy and SciPy.
Simple and efficient tools for data mining and data analysis
Accessible to everybody, and reusable in various contexts
Built on NumPy, SciPy, and matplotlib
Open source, commercially usable - BSD license
scikit-learn comes with a few standard datasets, for instance the iris and digits datasets for classification and the boston house prices dataset for regression.
Scikit-learn is largely written in Python, with some core algorithms written in Cython to achieve performance. Support vector machines are implemented by a Cython wrapper around LIBSVM; logistic regression and linear support vector machines by a similar wrapper around LIBLINEAR.
Bottleis a WSGI micro web-framework for the Python programming language. It is designed to be fast, simple and lightweight, and is distributed as a single file module with no dependencies other than the Python Standard Library. The same module runs with Python 2.5+ and 3.x.
It offers request dispatching (routes) with URL parameter support, templates, a built-in web server and adapters for many third-party WSGI/HTTP-server and template engines.
It is designed to be lightweight, and to allow development of web applications easily and quickly.
Bottle is a fast, simple and lightweight WSGI micro web-framework for Python. It is distributed as a single file module and has no dependencies other than the Python Standard Library.
Routing: Requests to function-call mapping with support for clean and dynamic URLs. Templates: Fast and pythonic built-in template engine and support for mako, jinja2 and cheetah templates. Utilities: Convenient access to form data, file uploads, cookies, headers and other HTTP-related metadata. Server: Built-in HTTP development server and support for paste, fapws3, bjoern, gae, cherrypy or any other WSGI capable HTTP server.
Single file which runs with both Python 2.5+ and 3.x
Can run as a standalone web server or be used behind ("mounted on") any web server which supports WSGI
Built-in template engine called SimpleTemplate Engine
Plugins for popular databases and key/value stores and other features
Written on top of Flask, Plotly.js, and React.js, Dash is ideal for building data visualization apps with highly custom user interfaces in pure Python. It's particularly suited for anyone who works with data in Python.
Through a couple of simple patterns, Dash abstracts away all of the technologies and protocols that are required to build an interactive web-based application. Dash is simple enough that you can bind a user interface around your Python code in an afternoon.
Dash apps are rendered in the web browser. You can deploy your apps to servers and then share them through URLs. Since Dash apps are viewed in the web browser, Dash is inherently cross-platform and mobile-ready.
1) Lightweight - Dash apps require very little boilerplate to get started: An app like this weighs in at just 40 lines of pure Python. Dash provides direct control 2) Direct Control - Dash provides a simple interface for tying UI controls, like sliders, dropdowns, and graphs, with your Python data analysis code. Dash is Composable and Modular 3) Completely Customizable - Every aesthetic element of a Dash app is customizable. Dash apps are built and published in the Web, so the full power of CSS is available.
Nagare is a free and open-source web framework for developing web applications in Stackless Python. This allows web applications to be developed in much the same way as desktop applications, for rapid application development.
Nagare is a components based framework: a Nagare application is a composition of interacting components each one with its own state and workflow kept on the server.
Each component can have one or several views that are composed to generate the final web page. This enables the developers to reuse or write highly reusable components easily and quickly.
Nagare is also a continuation-based web framework which enables to code a web application like a desktop application, with no need to split its control flow in a multitude of controllers and with the automatic handling of the back, fork and refresh actions from the browser.
Its component model and use of the continuation come from the famous Seaside Smalltalk framework.
Furthermore, Nagare integrates the best tools and standard from the Python world. For example:
WSGI: binds the application to several possible publishers,
lxml: generates the DOM trees and brings to Nagare the full set of XML features (XSL, XPath, Schemas …),
setuptools: installs, deploys and extends the Nagare framework and the Nagare applications too,
Anaconda is a freemium open source distribution of the Python and R programming languages for large-scale data processing, predictive analytics, and scientific computing, that aims to simplify package management and deployment
