Python environment joy
I love python, I had what seemed like a fairly complicated task, I googled and found two packages that basically do it all. One simple conda command to install.
Wait a sec.... let me just spend an inordinate amount of time fixing my python installation so I can use these packages...
Ok, back to our main program - (no joy with conda, so uninstalled and now using pyenv to run a downgraded environment for this project's dependencies).
I needed a world map with markers for each country mentioned in a user-entered country text input (i.e. with spelling errors). Despite not having any previous knowledge, using stackoverflow and the plugins dataprep and folium, it only took me
30mins two hours!
Can everyone please just stop updating things?
