Regardless of what you think about The Donald, if you enjoy computers, you’ll love TrumpScript — “Making Python great again!” Created by Sam Shadwell, a student Rice University, according to his GitHub profile page.

A few features listed on the page:

  • All programs must end with America is great.
  • Our language will automatically correct Forbes’ $4.5B to $10B.
  • In its raw form, TrumpScript is not compatible with Windows, because Trump isn’t the type of guy to believe in PC.
  • The language is completely case insensitive.

The author has posted 103 commits to this repository between Jan 16 and Jan 22. Wow. Sounds like he’s serious about getting Python back to where it once was!

Enjoy!

Section of the complete graphic

Rachel Mercer‘s graphic “Presidential Costs” shows, in a circular timeline, the history of the US through a history of the presidents, from Washington through Obama. Four layers of rings plus a ring of bubbles visualizes the time periods, key legislative acts, foreign conflicts and wars, and national debt. Very nice graphic.
