Backports and enhancements for the contextlib module

Project description

Jazzband Latest Docs

contextlib2 is a backport of the standard library’s contextlib module to earlier Python versions.

It also serves as a real world proving ground for possible future enhancements to the standard library version.


contextlib2 has no runtime dependencies, but requires unittest2 for testing on Python 2.x, as well as setuptools and wheel to generate universal wheel archives.

Local testing is just a matter of running python

You can test against multiple versions of Python with tox:

pip install tox

Versions currently tested in both tox and Travis CI are:

  • CPython 2.7
  • CPython 3.4
  • CPython 3.5
  • CPython 3.6
  • CPython 3.7
  • PyPy
  • PyPy3
