Hi devs. I have just posted a package that adds Python 3 support to the Python webservices module . If you're interested in Python then testing is very
much appreciated. If nothing comes up I plan to have it go live next week.
A further wrinkle with Python 3 support is the code generated by InterMine itself, which is currently only Python 2 compatible. The most obvious problem is the
lack of parenthesis around print statements, which I'm thinking of fixing by sticking
from __future__ import print_function
at the top of the generated code so Python 2 can handle them. However, there might be other issues as well when I investigate further (maybe unicode, for
example). Any thoughts?
