Fiddler vs Python: What are the differences?

Developers describe Fiddler as "A free web debugging tool *". It is a free web debugging proxy for any browser, system or platform. It helps you debug web applications by capturing network traffic between the Internet and test computers. The tool enables you to inspect incoming and outgoing data to monitor and modify requests and responses before the browser receives them. On the other hand, *Python** is detailed as "A clear and powerful object-oriented programming language, comparable to Perl, Ruby, Scheme, or Java". Python is a general purpose programming language created by Guido Van Rossum. Python is most praised for its elegant syntax and readable code, if you are just beginning your programming career python suits you best.

Fiddler can be classified as a tool in the "API Tools" category, while Python is grouped under "Languages".

Python is an open source tool with 25.3K GitHub stars and 10.5K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Python's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, Python has a broader approval, being mentioned in 2831 company stacks & 3641 developers stacks; compared to Fiddler, which is listed in 4 company stacks and 4 developer stacks.

        Beautiful is better than ugly.

        Explicit is better than implicit.

        Simple is better than complex.

        Complex is better than complicated.

        Flat is better than nested.

        Sparse is better than dense.

        Readability counts.

        Special cases aren't special enough to break the rules.

        Although practicality beats purity.

        Errors should never pass silently.

        Unless explicitly silenced.

        In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess.

        There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it.

        Although that way may not be obvious at first unless you're Dutch.

        Now is better than never.

        Although never is often better than right now.

        If the implementation is hard to explain, it's a bad idea.

        If the implementation is easy to explain, it may be a good idea.

        Namespaces are one honking great idea -- let's do more of those!

        To me, this is by far the best programming language. Why? Because it’s the only language that really got me going after trying to get into programming with Java for a while. Python is powerful, easy to learn, and gets you to unsderstand other languages more once you understand it. Did I state I love the python language? Well, I do..

        Backend server for analysis of image samples from iPhone microscope lens. Chose this because of familiarity. The number one thing that I've learned at hackathons is that work exclusively with what you're 100% comfortable with. I use Python extensively at my day job at Wit.ai, so it was the obvious choice for the bulk of my coding.

        been a pythoner for around 7 years, maybe longer. quite adept at it, and love using the higher constructs like decorators. was my goto scripting language until i fell in love with clojure. python's also the goto for most vfx studios and great for the machine learning. numpy and pyqt for the win.

        Large swaths of resources built for python to achieve natural language processing. (We are in the process of deprecating the services written in python and porting them over to Javascript and node)
