Teacher feedback wanted on NetworkZero

I recently released a Python package called NetworkZero. It makes it easy to add a bit of network sparkle to an existing application or to create a wholly network-based application. There is an emphasis on usability in a classroom or coding dojo where things like network addresses aren’t always easily known or communicated between members of a team.

It’s on PyPI so can be installed by pip: pip install networkzero. The docs are on readthedocs.org and the code is available on Github.

What I’d really like now is feedback from teachers or people who run code clubs or dojos, jams etc. If you can actually install and make use of the code, then great; please let me know if it’s helpful. But before that, I’d like to know whether it *can* be installed, or even before that, whether the documentation makes sense and is useful.

Too often I’ve read the docs for some hopeful-looking module or tool only to end up asking: “But what does it *do*? What problem is it solving? And why should I prefer it over the several other existing tools in the same space?”. I hope that I’ve answered these questions, but of course I know the answers beforehand, so I can’t be sure!

If you encounter specific problems either in the docs or in the code itself, feel free to raise a Github issue. (Or, indeed, a PR). Otherwise, please ping me on Twitter and we can continue by email or other means if a longer discussion seems worthwhile.

Thank you for any feedback you can give, and I hope that NetworkZero can become a useful addition to your toolbox
