Aspose.Tasks for Python via .NET is a robust project management API for handling Microsoft Project files. Our API supports reading, writing, and working with Microsoft Project documents without any other software dependencies, and contains over 100 Python classes to handle low-level project operations and data manipulation. Aspose.Tasks thus provides Python developers with a unique opportunity to implement script-based document automation. The library fully supports various project properties and can be used to manage calendars or work schedules.
With the advent of powerful computing hardware in recent decades, Python has become a programming language widely used in web development (Django, Flask, Pyramid frameworks), scientific tasks, and data analytics. Python's usefulness comes from its large ecosystem of third-party packages. With a large number of libraries that are gradually evolving, Python is considered the best choice for rapid software development. The Aspose.Tasks team decided to keep up with the latest programming trends and provide professional BMP, PNG, JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PDF processing software and other file formats to the Python community.
The Aspose.Tasks API for Python via .NET exposes data such as tasks, resources, resource assignments, and extended attribute data for developers to manipulate. Users can fully schedule by creating and reading tasks and resources, and assign or remove resources to or from tasks. Users can manipulate constraints, priorities, critical and time-consuming tasks, stop or resume tasks and split tasks, manage advanced attributes, link tasks, and write updated data back to the project.
