Porting to python3

Asked by Schwarzburg on 2012-11-14

Hi,

I'm currently in the process of porting an app developed with quickly to python3. I intend to follow these [1] suggestions, starting by including "from __future__ import absolute_import, print_function, unicode_literals" in all python files.

This mainly means that I will have to ignore many "DO NOT TOUCH THIS" and "DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE". My guess is that this will create a lot of work once quickly itself will support switches to python3.

So my question is: do you have a plan, a suggestion, how I can make the transition as painless as possible, so that the future quickly updates and my own updates do not collide too much?

Not especially. But I imagine once Quickly supports Python3 projects, there will only be so many ways to do it. And its changes and yours won't conflict much.

Thanks Michael Terry, that solved my question.
