My name is Alexander Pushkov and I write code (primarily Python or JavaScript).

Some links: GitLab, GitHub (older OSS stuff), Twitter, Telegram, E-mail.

I make open source stuff, such as:

A simple ORM-agnostic marshalling library. Python, Unlicense
Instant REST API client libraries using Requests. Python, Apache 2
A thin abstraction layer on top of FUSE (think “Flask for filesystems”). Python, ISC
A React-esque library for Python GUI app development. Python, Unlicense
Simple online radio with live streams and local music playing capabilities. Liquidsoap, ISC

I have worked at:
