Determine what projects are blocking you from porting to Python 3
This script takes in a set of dependencies and then figures out which of them are holding you up from porting to Python 3.
You can specify your dependencies in multiple ways:
caniusepython3 -r requirements.txt test-requirement.txt caniusepython3 -m PKG-INFO caniusepython3 -p numpy scipy ipython # If your project's setup.py uses setuptools ... python setup.py caniusepython3
The output of the script will tell you how many (implicit) dependencies you need to transition to Python 3 in order to allow you to make the same transition. It will also list what projects have no dependencies blocking their transition so you can ask them to start a port to Python 3.
If you prefer a web interface you can use https://caniusepython3.com by Jannis Leidel.
Integrating With Your Tests
If you want to check for Python 3 availability as part of your tests, you can use icanusepython3.check():
def check(requirements_paths=, metadata=, projects=): """Return True if all of the specified dependencies have been ported to Python 3. The requirements_paths argument takes a sequence of file paths to requirements files. The 'metadata' argument takes a sequence of strings representing metadata. The 'projects' argument takes a sequence of project names. Any project that is not listed on PyPI will be considered ported. """
You can then integrate it into your tests like so:
import unittest import caniusepython3 class DependenciesOnPython3(unittest.TestCase): def test_dependencies(self): # Will begin to fail when dependencies are no longer blocking you # from using Python 3. self.assertFalse(caniusepython3.check(projects=['ipython']))
For the change log, how to tell if a project has been ported, as well as help on how to port a project, please see the project website.
Secret, bonus feature
If you would like to use a different name for the script and setuptools command then set the environment variable CIU_ALT_NAME to what you would like the alternative name to be. Reddit suggests “icanhazpython3”.
