"My experience with an awesome Package Manager"

What do you like best?

Python wheel is a simple and elegant way to manage your packages and in turn your projects that are heavily dependent on various dependencies. It aims to support installation of artifacts that do not require compilation, thus reducing costs in production and testing workflows. It is very versatile and just speeds up your productivity. It is also backed up with a good documentation, so if you are stuck anywhere, just Google it!

What do you dislike?

Although Python Wheel has a lot of documentation, but if you are a noobie and find reading documentation difficult, the help provided to you is scarce. This might be a headache if you are working with complex problem statements.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go through the documentation properly. Python Wheel is open source and might be a bit confusing for you in the initial stages.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used it in simple and faster packaging of python modules. I have used it in data sciences, and python wheel makes the management of various dependencies involved in my data visualizations a lot easier.

"Efficient for what it was made to do"

What do you like best?

This format for python is really easy to understand and use. Wheels are easy to install. This is a good program extension that will help you save storage in its usage and main functions

What do you dislike?

Need latest version of PIP which is constantly updated leaving you having to constantly update to run the program. I wish they didn't have to make the updates so close together and found a more effective program in terms of updates and conductive coding

I am able to program more efficiently and effectively with this level of PIP and storage is just the best. I realized in terms of benefits, it saves time and storage and is fast.
