Python 3 is the future¶
Pyzo is based on Python 3 (aka Python 3000, aka Python 3k), which is the new version of Python since december 2008. It took the scientific community a while, but since 2013 all core scientific packages work in Python 3. Python 3 is the future so if you are new to Python, you better start with that right away.
However, not all packages are available in Python 3 yet. In such a case you can do a couple of things:
- Ask the developers to make it work in Python 3. If enough users ask they might go and work on it.
- You can help porting the library to Python 3.
- Maybe you can use an alternative library.
- If none of the above is possible, you may decide to use Python 2.
