There’s a Python library called StackOverflow Importer that lets you treat Stack Overflow as a giant package from which you can import any useful function to your Python session.
An example of what you may do in the Python REPL with this library:
>>> from stackoverflow import quick_sort >>> quick_sort.sort([1337, 2, 3, 1]) [1, 2, 3, 1337] >>> from stackoverflow import file_creation_modification_date >>> file_creation_modification_date.modification_date('/tmp/develop2.jpg') datetime.datetime(2016, 11, 1, 22, 9, 11, 265510)
Quite fun and useful in theory. Sadly, very few of the imports I tried did actually work in practice. This is due to many of the answers not being written as easily imported functions.
