A hack on top of 2to3 for modernizing code for hybrid codebases.
Python _ _ _ __ ___ __| |___ _ _ _ _ (_)______ | ' \/ _ \/ _` / -_) '_| ' \| |_ / -_) |_|_|_\___/\__,_\___|_| |_||_|_/__\___| This library is a very thin wrapper around lib2to3 to utilize it to make Python 2 code more modern with the intention of eventually porting it over to Python 3. It does not guarantee, but it attempts to spit out a Python 2/3 compatible codebase. The code that it generates has a runtime dependency on `six`. Unicode Literal Control: - By default modernize will wrap literals with the six helpers. This is useful if you want to support Python 3.1 and Python 3.2 without bigger changes. - Alternatively there is the ``--compat-unicode`` flag which does not change unicode literals at all which means that you can take advantage of PEP 414. - The last alternative is the ``--future-unicode`` flag which imports the ``unicode_literals`` from the ``__future__`` module. This requires Python 2.6 and later and will require that you mark bytestrings with ``b''`` and native strings in ``str(b'')`` or something similar that survives the transformation.
