Too Long; Didn't Read

The question of from-scratch implementation vs Python library comes up once in a while, no matter the goal of your project. Here are 7 things to consider: Time - do you have a deadline? Is it soon? Learning - is your goal to learn or to understand a concept? Complexity - how difficult is it to do? Project type - will you potentially deploy to production? Is it just for you? Python experience - how confident are you in your skills? Can somebody help? Library size - how extensive is the library? Functionality utilization - can you use multiple functions from this library?
