I don't work with python, but I know that for many people developing their own solutions, apps and products and managing those products is more than relevant. I assume pip you use as well, and it's great that there are such solutions for Mac to manage all products as easily and efficiently as possible.

Core idea: Consider creating a type to validate an arbitrary JSON document with a fixed schema Proposed syntax:

I think the methodology for the calculation of language popularity is specifically under representative of both R and python. if you check out trends for dplyr (R) or pandas (python) packages for data manipulation, both dwarf the overall language specific searches. I wonder if that bias also partially led to the declining interest in Ruby on Rails.
