Personal Projects
LEP-downloader - 2019, 2022, Python CLI mini-app (script): parser and downloader of LEP episodes. Developing the third version of script (released on 3/3/22), I applied some OOP principles and covered almost all functions with absolutely isolated unit tests. Sharped my Python skills and libraries (pytest, requests, bs4, typing, etc.)

Playlist Along - 2021, Python CLI mini-app for conversion and simple processing M3U files (playlists). I created this app to make my weekly routine easier and took a deep dive into Python development workflow (complete cycle). As a result, CI (unit-tests running via pytest and nox) / CD (deployment package on PyPI). Also a documentation website and auto generated release notes. All of that are running in GitHub Actions.
