6 Unique Python Projects Everyone Is Talking About
List of 20+ web development projects

Python has consistently been one of the topmost languages for programming across multiple fields, and with it, grow the use cases which it can support.

You must have come across a few such use cases in the previous blog - Free Python Projects (2021). And in this blog, we are going to explore many more interesting applications of Python programming.

1. Data analysis using big data tools

Python projects - Data Analysis using big data tools

Big Data is one of the most disruptive areas in the industry today. To be able to manage and utilize terabytes of data to generate actionable insights is a skill that will find ready requirements across sectors. And such data cannot be directly stored on traditional RDBMS like MySQL, given its size and complexity. There need to be tools to aggregate the data so that it can be used.

In this project, you will be using HDFS (Hadoop Distributed File System) and Pyspark to fetch the NYC yellow taxi dataset, load and process it, converting it into a format that can be stored and queried on a MySQL database.

Bonus download: Build real-world projects and gain skills like Data Visualization, Multithreading, Mobile App Development, and more

Skills to hone

When you complete this project, you will be able to flaunt the following practical skills:

  1. Pyspark
  2. Big Data
  3. HDFS
  4. Working with Jupyter Notebooks

Who should try this

This project is a great opportunity to strengthen your basic knowledge of Pyspark, Linux and Hadoop file system.

Since this project is made using Linux, a Cloud solution like AWS EC2 will be required in case you do not have a Linux machine.

This is an intermediate Python project that can be completed easily within 20 hours.

2. YouTube transcript summarizer

Python projects - YouTube transcript summarizer

Deep Learning-Natural Language Processing and Web Development are two favorite choices of beginner Python developers.

But what if you could not only learn both of these, but also create a project that you can use in your daily life?

In this project, you will be creating a Chrome extension that summarizes a YouTube video from its transcripts. This is done by implementing an NLP model from the popular Huggingface library.

This project is a time-saver for YouTube viewers and a remarkable addition to your dev portfolio. Completing this project will showcase your command over full stack development using HTML, CSS in the frontend and Flask for the backend, along with the concepts of NLP.

Moreover, you will gain transferrable skills of creating a Chrome extension into a web app. This is a valuable skill given the huge popularity and scope of extensions.

Skills

By the end of this project, you will be able to flaunt these skills:

  1. Natural Language Processing
  2. Creating a chrome extension
  3. Backend development - REST, Flask
  4. Frontend development - HTML, CSS

3. Discord bot for stocks

Python projects - Discord bot for stocks

The stock market is known for its volatility, and has great potential to be analyzed with the help of technology. The faster you analyze and the better you understand, the more informed decisions you make. So, why not create an app that helps you (and your friends and family), analyze faster and understand better!

In this project, you will be making a bot that can track stock prices and support queries like historic data, graphical representations, and send them as messages on communications platform Discord, using python libraries like Pandas and Plotly, and Discord APIs.

Skills to hone

By the end of this project, you will have a strong command over the following skills:

  • Creating a Discord application/bot
  • Working with APIs in Python
  • Data visualization in Python using Pandas and Plotly

4. Weather forecasting app

Python projects - weather forecasting app

The weather for the day determines a lot of our activities. An application that can give you regular weather updates, customized to your needs would be super handy, don't you think?

In this project, you will be creating a weather forecast application using Streamlit, a Python framework for creating web UI components, OWM (Open Weather Map) to fetch the weather data, and Matplotlib, to display the data graphically.

This project is especially unique because you would be creating a web application with practically zero HTML, CSS. In fact, with nothing but Python!

Take a look at the demo of how this app works.

Skills to hone

By the end of this project, you would have gained deep hands on experience in the following skills and tools:

  • Python libraries of PyOWM, Streamlit
  • Working with APIs in Python
  • Data visualization in Python using Matplotlib

Who should try this

This Python project is a great value add for developers who have a decent background with Python libraries. The best part is that, you can build the entire app in about 15 hours.

5. Python interpreter

Python projects - Python interpreter

Interpreters are software tools that most developers consider black-boxes, where you put in high level language code, and it converts it into machine language. It runs smoothly without you worrying about how that happens.

But how does this work? Are you curious to dig into the details? This project gives you the complete understanding of how this works, how the Python/JS code is parsed by the interpreter, how the appropriate system calls are made, and how it is run. It can even put you on track to improve some limitations of the existing interpreters!

You will gain all the practical knowledge you need by implementing a CLI based interpreter that can accept statements in a high level programming language (like Python), and parse and execute them - starting with easy functions such as mathematical operations, and advancing to variable checking to evaluating bracketed expressions.

6. Machine Learning preprocessing CLI

Python projects - Machine Learning preprocessing CLI

More than half of a Machine learning project is preprocessing - cleaning the data by feature scaling, removing null values, so that models could be trained against it to give accurate predictions. This is often a tedious task, and it would be great if this could be automated.

In this project, you will be building a command line interface application that can take input of the dataset, preprocess the data in stages, and finally output the cleaned data. With this application, implementing your next Machine Learning project would take much less time than usual.

Go through the complete project plan and start right away.
