The 'pythonids' package provides the identification and enumeration of Python syntax and implementation.

Project description

The ‘pythonids‘ package provides the enumeration of Python syntaxes and the categorization of Python implementations. This enables the development of fast and easy portable generic code for arbitrary platforms in IT and IoT landscapes consisting of heterogeneous physical and virtual runtime environments.

The current supported syntaxes are Python2.7+ and Python3 for the Python implementations:

  • CPython

  • IPython (based on CPython)

  • IronPython

  • Jython

  • PyPy


  • MicroPython

  • CircuitPython

The current supported platforms are:

  • Linux, BSD, Unix, OS-X, Cygwin, and Windows

  • x86, amd64, arm32/armhf, arm64/aarch64

  • Servers, Workstations, Embedded Systems

  • Datacenters, public and private Clouds, IoT
