Support of Python 3
WeeChat can now compile with Python 3.x (successfully tested with Python 3.1 and 3.2).
This is still experimental and recommended Python for WeeChat remains version 2.7.
Some scripts (including weeget.py) have been updated for Python 3.x, they have tag "py3k-ok" on the scripts page: https://weechat.org/scripts/stable/tag/py3k-ok/
Python versions supported by WeeChat:
- 2.5: many scripts require at least 2.6 - NOT recommended
- 2.6: all scripts should work fine
- 2.7: recommended version (all scripts are guaranteed to work with this version)
- 3.x: experimental, should be used only for tests
Note that "python" plugin in WeeChat can support only one version, so it can be a 2.x or 3.x, not both at same time.
Update on 2019-07-01: Python 3 is now compiled by default and therefore the recommended version, see the post: Python 3 by default.
