kumparan is a collection of commonly-used Python modules in Kumparan.
The Python package is available at pypi and you can install it using the following command:

The documentation is available here.
At Kumparan, we use python mainly to solve data engineering and data science problems. From our tracker services that can digest tracking events in less than 10ms to our machine learning services are all written in Python.
One of the challenge that we face as a team is the source code management, with kumparan package it allows us to:
- Re-use our existing implementation easily. This whill helps our engineers speed up the development process and not to re-invent the wheel.
- Centralize a shared modules management. Centralized shared modules means that there is only one source of the truth. We can update & improve the shared module once and it will affect to all services that use it.
We follow semantic versioning for a release procedure. When there is a breaking changes in the API, we will make sure the old code still run in a period of time. This will prevent breaking build in production and a give a time to the engineer to update their services.
