Porting to python3

Asked by Schwarzburg


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.
