There is just over a year to go on the Python 2.7 death clock
Have Mcneel plans moved on at all in terms of Python 3 support? Two major features of Python are the large standard library and the large number of available technical and scientific libraries.
This has really accelerated over the last 2 years with some great tools in recent versions of Python 3 so supporting Python 3 would give Rhino developers access to some amazing machine learning, data visualisation and other tools. There are also lots of tools and support for switching code from 2 to 3.
I see the 3dm project is py3 compatible but is that a moonshot? is there an official strategy for Python 3 support in Rhino and Grasshopper?
By the way : thank you very much for integrating Python in Rhino! This makes my working life much less repetitive and tedious and I feel like I am just starting to explore the possibilities
I know that Rhino currently uses IronPython, and I see that that project picked up life again earlier in 2018 after a long hiatus. I am also aware of the Python .Net project which supports Python 3 but don’t know if that is suitable for Rhino integration…?
