Take weather data with pyowm from openweathermap .

This tutorial shows you how to download and install the pyowm python module.
One of the great things about using this python module let you to provide data from openweathermap website (need to have one account).
PyOWM runs on Python 2.7 and Python 3.2+, and integrates with Django 1.10+ models.
All documentation can be found here.

The install is simple with pip , python 2.7 and Fedora 25.

The tensorflow python module - part 003.

This short tutorial come to fix your work and help you with examples and tutorials.
You can look to the internet and you can search many examples and tutorials but you can get errors.
How to fix that:
The first step is to know what tensorflow version of you use.
[mythcat@localhost ~]$ python -c "import tensorflow; print(tensorflow.__version__)"
Then yo need to know what parts from tensorflow old version is deprecated from the last version.
One superannuated method is to fix old source code with this:
import tensorflow as tf
tf.scalar_summary = tf.summary.scalar
tf.merge_all_summaries = tf.summary.merge_all
tf.train.SummaryWriter = tf.summary.FileWriter
A better method is to fix your source code and read the documentation.

Have a better day possible.

The tensorflow python module - part 002.

Today I will show you how to install tensorflow python module on Windows OS with pip tool.
I used python version 3.5.3.
C:\Python35>cd Scripts

C:\Python35\Scripts>pip3 install --upgrade tensorflow
Collecting tensorflow

Next step is to install the GPU version of TensorFlow:
C:\Python35\Scripts>pip3 install --upgrade tensorflow-gpu

If you are installing TensorFlow with GPU support then the following NVIDIA software must be installed on your system:

CUDA Toolkit 8.0. , the NVIDIA drivers associated with CUDA Toolkit 8.0 and cuDNN v5.1.
The cuDNN is typically installed in a different location from the other CUDA DLLs.
Now you need to add the directory where you installed the cuDNN DLL to your %PATH% environment variable.
The result will be output under python result when you import this python module, see my output:

The tensorflow python module - part 001.

TensorFlow™ is an open source software library for numerical computation using data flow graphs.
I used Fedora 25 distro and python version 2.7.
The base of this installation was the official website.
Fist step of the installation was the base python module: tensorflow.

The pattern python module - part 001.

This is a very short presentation of pattern python module.
This python module is full of options and features.
I will try to show you some parts useful for most python users.
About pattern python module:
Pattern is a web mining module for the Python programming language.
It has tools for data mining (Google, Twitter and Wikipedia API, a web crawler, a HTML DOM parser), natural language processing (part-of-speech taggers, n-gram search, sentiment analysis, WordNet), machine learning (vector space model, clustering, SVM), network analysis and visualization.
Pattern developer documentation
pattern.web Asynchronous requests, web services, web crawler, HTML DOM parser.
pattern.db Wrappers for databases (MySQL, SQLite) and CSV-files.
pattern.text Base classes for parsers, parse trees and sentiment analysis. Pattern matching algorithm for parsed text (syntax & semantics).
pattern.vector Vector space model, clustering, classification.
pattern.graph Graph analysis & visualization.

I used with Fedora linux and you can see the instalation of this python module:
[root@localhost ~]# pip install pattern
Collecting pattern

  Running install for pattern ... done
Successfully installed pattern-2.6

Frequently used single character variable names:
Variable Meaning Example
a array, all a = [normalize(w) for w in words]
b boolean while b is False:
d distance, document d = distance(v1, v2)
e element e = html.find('#nav')
f file, filter, function f = open('data.csv', 'r')
i index for i in range(len(matrix)):
j index for j in range(len(matrix[i])):
k key for k in vector.keys():
n list length n = len(a)
p parser, pattern p ='NN')
q query for r in
r result, row for r in csv('data.csv):
s string s = s.decode('utf-8').strip()
t time t = time.time() - t0
v value, vector for k, v in vector.items():
w word for i, w in enumerate(sentence.words):
x horizontal position node.x = 0
y vertical position node.y = 0
Pattern contains part-of-speech taggers for a number of languages (including English, Spanish, German, French and Dutch). Part-of-speech tagging is useful in many data mining tasks. A part-of-speech tagger takes a string of text and identifies the sentences and the words in the text along with their word type. 

LanguageCode Speakers Example countries

Italian it 60M Italy (60)

You can deal with many websites, see examples:
from pattern.web import Wikipedia
from pattern.web import Yahoo
from pattern.web import Twitter
from pattern.web import Facebook
from pattern.web import Flickr
from pattern.web import GMAIL
from pattern.web import GOOGLE
Now, about pattern.db.
The pattern.db module contains wrappers for databases (SQLite, MySQL), Unicode CSV files and Python's datetime. It offers a convenient way to work with tabular data, for example retrieved with the pattern.web module.
import pattern 
from pattern.db import Database, field, pk, STRING, BOOLEAN, DATE, NOW 
db = Database('people')
field('name', STRING(80), index=True),
field('type', STRING(20)),
field('date_birth', DATE, default=None),
field('date_created', DATE, default=NOW)
db.area_people.append(name=u'George', type='male')
print db.area_people.rows()[0]
(1, u'George', u'male', None, Date('2017-03-06 22:38:13'))

Working with datetime python module.

This module is very good and I worked with this issue by using mysql and python.
The version of python I used is 2.7 under Fedora distro.
You can take a look at the official page.
I use the pip and not the dnf fedora linux tool.

I solve this problems:
  • conversion using the lamba function
    parser.add_argument('date', type=lambda s: datetime.datetime.strptime(s, '%Y-%m-%d'))
  • solve last day
    datetime.datetime.strptime(new_value, '%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S')-timedelta(days=1)
  • print the today date
  • show date using explicit format string
    today.strftime("%A %d. %B %Y")
    'Sunday 05. March 2017'
  • using epoch issue [1]
    from datetime import datetime
    now_epoch = (datetime.utcnow() - datetime(1970, 1, 1)).total_seconds()
    datetime.datetime(2017, 3, 4, 22, 35, 13, 463409)
    datetime.datetime(2017, 3, 5, 0, 35, 13, 463409)

    datetime.fromtimestamp(now_epoch, pytz.utc)
    datetime.datetime(2017, 3, 4, 22, 35, 13, 463409, tzinfo=)
[1] The Unix epoch is the time 00:00:00 UTC on 1 January 1970. There is a problem with this definition, in that UTC did not exist in its current form until 1972;

Using pygeoip and maxmin database.

I try locate one ip using the databases from maxmind website and is not good for me.
The database records show me the output from country area.
I read the docs from here.
This is the python script I used:
#wget -N -q
import pygeoip 
gip = pygeoip.GeoIP('GeoLiteCity.dat')
rec = gip.record_by_addr('___________________')
for key,val in rec.items():
    print "%s: %s" %(key,val)

Have a great day.
