An immense help, when choosing a library, is to look at the unit test code.
Test code usually provides a great head start; also, unit tests mean that the library is generally of high quality.
Unit test code can be quickly incorporated/adapted into your application.

I’m a C# dev, so for me, it’s pretty quick and easy to whip up a dotnet core service application and get straight into coding the Fun Stuff.
Unfortunately, I’ve never used Python, so anything I know is only hearsay.
Which, by all accounts, Python is a powerful programming language with similar abstractions to C#.

Anyway, all code has been written before; it’s just a matter of finding and adapting it.
One of the greatest resource for any coder is:
