Subject [jira] [Commented] (AVRO-1382) Support for python3
Date Thu, 17 Oct 2013 05:04:42 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1382?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13797599#comment-13797599

Christophe Taton commented on AVRO-1382:

I'm making good progress on this. All tests but one are passing now, but I'm not confident
that this is ready for a release.
Current work is available here: https://github.com/kryzthov/avro/tree/AVRO-1382 (this is mostly
a copy/paste of the Python2 API, with lots of refactoring, cleanups and documentation).
Should I keep working on my personal branch until it is ready for release, or would you rather
it included in a release as "experimental"?

>    Affects Versions: 1.7.5

> Hi,
> I'd need to use Avro from Python3, which would require essentially the following changes,
which I am happy to contribute:
>  - rewrite except statements according to new syntax
>  - rewrite print statements according to new syntax
>  - basestring becomes str
>  - update some imports (StringIO becomes io.StringIO, httplib becomes http.client)
> This would apparently require branching the python code to maintain a version for python2
and a separate version for python3.
> Any thoughts on how to approach this?
> Thanks!
