in thread Curious about Perl's strengths in 2018

I'm not that proficient in Python° and have some questions:

  • Is there anything remotely comparable to metacpan.org in Python? PyPi looks rather "simplistic".
  • Have you seen the ease of cpanm ?
  • Is there any community site comparable to perlmonks?

    I don't know how well CPAN and PyPi compare. For the most part, if I need something, I just either install the Ubuntu package (if one exists and is adequately up-to-date) or sudo -H pip3 install <the thing>. That's about as much as I need to interface with the two package systems in this case.

    There are various Python fora out there, including subreddits. I can't comment on how good they are because I never used any of them. I rarely have issues with Python or elements of its third-party ecosystem and when I do there has always been something on Stack Overflow to answer my questions.
