The Python Standard Library is a large built-in library of modules that is part of Python and is always available to your Python programs:

There are lots of other useful libraries available to Python programmers, that need to be installed before use, using a package manager such as PIP or Conda. Here are some articles of a few of these libraries:

  • pygame - create arcade style games.
  • numpy - learn to process large data arrays (such as images and sound) efficiently in Python using the numpy library.
  • matplotlib - an easy to use but powerful library for plotting graphs of various types.
  • pillow - batch processing images in Python.
  • Pycairo - Python high quality graphics library.
  • Flask - Simple Python web framework
  • cryptography - Cryptography library
