Actually both of those (just installed Anaconda yesterday for somebody) 
had for at least an year a Python 3 version. I would not say that there 
is no need felt to move over to Python 3, there's rather _resistance_ to 
moving over due to manifold retro-compatibility issues in many packages 
(which however have mostly been adapted by now). And LyX is no different.

Is there any real pressing need to move over to Python 3? I'm a pretty 
heavy python user and it just doesn't seem like the scientific 
community in general cares about it. I've actually never met anyone 
who runs anything in 3.  Two of the major python package managers 
(anaconda and canopy) either default to 2 or don't even support 3.

about python3 and lyx

2014-10-08 Thread Alex Vergara Gil
Hi lyxers!

 

I have lyx 2.1.2 in both Windows 7 x64 and Ubuntu 14.04 x64, it runs fine
when installing. Now my work depends a lot on python, specifically on python
3.4 which is the default in both of my systems. I have managed to run python
scripts within lyx and then the problem arises: lyx have its own bundled
python distribution in windows, so every python script runs in the bundled
version which is python 2.7, so my scripts doesn´t run on windows. I tried
to change the default python version in lyx so it is forced to us python3
and then it crashed because a lot of its default scripts doesn´t run anymore
(ie, the reconfigure.py script). I know in linux there is both python 2.7
and 3.4 living together and you can select between them, but in windows I
can´t manage to achieve this behavior.

 

My questions are exclusive (or not)

 

1.   Is there a plan to move everything to python3 so we can finally
forget the old python2?

Or

2.   Is there a way to have both python3 and bundled python version in
lyx living together in windows? Any hints?
