I know the case has been debated for the Python 3 article, but there, seriously, shouldn't this be merged with the main Python article? Arikel 13:24, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Perhaps. The whole list seems a bit long to merge. You could add a 'notable python programs' section to the main python article, and provide a link to here. Jonoerik (talk) 22:37, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Merge it[edit]

It should be merged, beleive me, its better to be in one section —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 19:30, 13 March 2007

What is it?[edit]

I'm a programmer but I couldn't see what the features of Python are. Why use it? Are there any programming examples? Robotics1 21:08, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

Have you read the main python language page? There are some code examples there. Jonoerik (talk) 22:37, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Video games[edit]

Would it be OK to have a list of video games that use Python as a scripting language (for instance, Vega Strike)? SharkD (talk) 03:12, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

Sounds like a good addition. Chris Cunningham (not at work) - talk 09:18, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

Python for S60 Python Applications and Games?[edit]

I think we can include Nokia's recently ported Python for S60 Applications and Games. —IncidentFlux [ TalkBack | Contributions ] 13:01, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Python applications vs. Applications using Python[edit]

I have just sorted most items in this article alphabetically. The seems to be some ambiguity in the Applications section. At first i thought they would be applications written in Python like Zope and was a bit dissapointed when i found applications using Python like ArcGIS, clearly not written in Python.

Applications using Python should probably be put in the Embedded as a scripting language section. There should probably also be a section for software partially written in Python. I'm not sure as to wich software should be in wich section though. Help wanted ;) Johan G (talk) 04:04, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

I agree. There should be a clear distinction in the list between software that is written in Python, and software that can be used with Python. --Joshua Issac (talk) 13:46, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

Vaults of Parnassus[edit]

There is a link at the end to the "Vaults of Parnassus." Said vaults were useful, but seem to have disappeared in the last month or two. I would remove the link from this article, but I'm hoping that the vaults have been moved, not removed. Anyone know a new URL? Mcswell (talk) 14:50, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

Possible items[edit]

An editor added the below material to the main Python article, where it definitely doesn't belong. Moreover, the links are mostly, incorrectly, to various external project pages rather than to the various WP articles. However, there might be some material listed that is not, but should be, be included in this article. LotLE×talk 20:23, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Major frameworks[edit]

fixing the video game citations[edit]

how can the "citation needed" video game entries be properly fixed? i happen to have played bridge commander, and know that there's a bunch of .pyo files around in the installed program, which can be verified to be python files using the file utility. can the game itself be used as a reference, or would that constitute original research and we'd need someone else to look at it and state it uses python (srsly?)? -- (talk) 10:29, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

That's an interesting question, but I suspect it would be original research. Also, remember that citations actually serve a dual-purpose; not only do they keep things reliable, they also keep things notable. If you can't find a citation for something in a reliable third-party source, then the information is trivial, and in cases like this, that is actually more important than keeping information reliable (do we really want this list filled with a gazillion games made in Pygame?)

Khan Academy[edit]

The link above is an image confirming that the Khan Academy uses at least some python scripts. I'm not sure where to put it in the article though. Yos233 (talk) 16:17, 15 March 2012 (UTC)


Should each application have a reference? --WikiTryHardDieHard (talk) 19:00, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
