PS: I needed to adjust myself a bit to the functional style of your code and I am starting liking it. What was your motivation for using toolz and what practical experience have you got with using it? Just curious :) (I am trying to use a more functional style in another Python-based project.)
Well, I'm not sure why I got into functional programming, but probably just from a few friends and colleagues who are into it. I ended up learning Haskell for fun and went from there. Regarding Toolz, I've been using it for quite some time. It seems well supported and is the basis for Dask, which seems to be widely used. I think there are alternatives in Python for functional style programming, but haven't tried them. They don't seem as complete as Toolz. There's a list of them here, https://github.com/sfermigier/awesome-functional-python#libraries.... I haven't tried the others.
Thanks! The list is also interesting, I was not aware of the number of functional programming packages.
If you'd like to chat about this then we could set up a video chat sometime.
Yeah, but I would need to look at toolz first to have some common ground :) I will ping you when I am ready (hopefully in a finite time).
