Python 3 is the futureΒΆ

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.
