poliastro wouldn’t be possible without the tremendous, often unpaid and unrecognised effort of thousands of volunteers who devote a significant part of their lives to provide the best software money can buy, for free. This is a list of direct poliastro dependencies with a citeable resource, which doesn’t account for the fact that I have used and enjoyed free (as in freedom) operative systems, compilers, text editors, IDEs and browsers for my whole academic life.
