# How to Publish an Open-Source Python Package to PyPI

Python is famous for coming with batteries included. Sophisticated
capabilities are available in the standard library. You can find modules for
working with sockets, parsing CSV, JSON, and XML files, and working with
files and file paths.

However great the packages included with Python are, there are many
fantastic projects available outside the standard library. These are most
often hosted at the Python Packaging Index (PyPI), historically known as the
Cheese Shop. At PyPI, you can find everything from Hello World to advanced
deep learning libraries.

You can also call the Real Python Feed Reader in your own Python code, by importing from the reader package:

>>> from reader import feed
>>> feed.get_titles()
