The Python Package Index

Python Software Foundation

The Python Package Index (PyPI) is the official software repository for the Python programming language. Python developers use PyPI to share and reuse Python code.

PyPI.org is visited by over 2.5 million people per month, and has users from over 200 countries.

Kabu has been working with the PyPI team since 2015. During this time the team has released the new version of PyPI, and made significant security and usability improvements.

Our work includes:

  • Conducting user research and testing
  • Redesigning PyPI's user interface
  • Designing PyPI's new visual identity
  • Leading the development of the HTML and CSS (SCSS) codebases
  • Assisting in the internationalisation of the codebase, to better cater for PyPI's global audience
  • Bringing the site up to WCAG 2.0 AA accessibility standards
  • Reviewing community pull requests and supporting community contributors

Working with Nicole [from Kabu Creative] is a delight.

I've had the opportunity to collaborate with Nicole as a core developer on the Python Package Index.

Nicole's thoughtful and dedicated approach to design shows clearly in the outcomes of user-research, individual changes, and broader user experience.

As a core developer on the PyPI project, Nicole is patient and helpful while remaining decisive and friendly amidst contentious decisions.

BPCLEtool

Department of Health, Victoria, Australia

BPCLEtool is a web application that helps health organisations improve the way that they deliver education for medical, nursing and allied health students.

Originally developed for the Victorian Department of Health, BPCLEtool is now used by hundreds of health organisations across Australia.

bpcletool

The BPCLEtool concept was developed by Darcy Associates to help Victorian health organisations assess themselves against the BPCLE (best practice clinical learning environments) framework.

We helped transform a Microsoft Excel prototype into a feature-rich modern web application.

Our role included:

  • Consulting with Darcy Associates to determine the optimal way to develop the required features
  • Managing remote members of the team responsible for different aspects of the project
  • User interface design and development
  • Back end web development in Django
  • Assisting in the roll out of the tool

The team at Kabu Creative has shown great creativity in the development of the new online BPCLEtool.

We needed a practical mechanism to assist with the implementation of the BPCLE Framework and the BPCLEtool exceeds those requirements.

The Kabu Creative team was flexible in their approach - listening and responding to requirements and feedback.

Stakeholders have been very impressed with the tool's innovative functionality and user-friendly interface.
