This page describes efforts to port pylint to Python 3.x

Status of the port

We're really just getting started.

Goals and high level overview of tasks

The idea is to eliminate Python 2.4 compatibility because that will simplify some of the code, and to expand compatibility to 3.0 and 3.1.

  • This will require converting 3 Python 2-compatible packages to a common subset of Python 2 and Python 3. We may or may not be able to do this using 2to3; 2to3 may be
    • a bit too exuberant about moving to a nice, python 3-only syntax in some areas.
    • logilab common
      • This one is probably the place to start, because it appears to contain the test harness we need, and the owners of the code believe it will
        • be the easiest part
    • logilab astng
    • pylint itself
  • There appear to be test suites for each of these, which can be invoked using the pytest command, which in turn appears to be part of logilab-common itself
  • The owners of the code would like to keep the changes compatible with Python 2.5.x, which of course is a bit more involved than targeting 2.6 and up.
