AskSO - StackOverflow Python Question Assistant

Project Description

This is a tool to help you construct a good question about Python on StackOverflow, although it can help with other forums too. It assumes that you’ve written some code that isn’t behaving correctly. This should not be a problem, as StackOverflow generally expects you to show that you’ve tried something.

To install: run pip install ask-so in a terminal. You will need pip, which you can install with the instructions here. On Linux/OSX you may need to run sudo pip install ask-so. If nothing works, you can download the source, unzip it, and run python inside.

To use:

  1. (Optional, best if your question involves files) Navigate to the location of your code in a terminal.
  2. Run askso in the terminal. If that doesn’t work: python -m askso. This will start a server.
  3. Visit http://localhost:5000/ in your browser.
