roses are red
violets are blue
use python 3
not python 2
@lynnesbian roses are red
violets are violet
use perl six
not perl fiveolet
@lynnesbian Anyone starting a project with Python 2 in 2018 is a reactionary.
@lynnesbian ruby is red
python is free
don't start new projects
@lynnesbian you adorable dork... gosh 😍
@lynnesbian Lynne said about every toot she ever made.
narrator: little did she know this would only perhaps boost her popularity
@LottieVixen the ones i actually put scores of minutes of effort into like the video ones go unnoticed and this turd that i excreted onto my page took like ten seconds
@lynnesbian tbh they are disturbing to me, hence I don't boost or view them anymore...sorry
@LottieVixen the video ones? what makes them disturbing?
@lynnesbian but byte operations :<
@marble can python 3 not do those? i've never used them
try to do
@marble it seems to have changed from
@lynnesbian and now do
for b in b'hello':
the iterator in python3 gives an int and not a char
@marble yeah it seems like you have to use percent formatting which is gross
I like to use python for data processing for stuff like byte level data processing and python3 makes it unnecessarily hard
@marble yeah, that sucks :c
And apparently every time some addresses this issue on the python dev ML the credo is
"this is edge case - no fix needed - works for me"
@marble ugh that's so shitty
@lynnesbian But all my code is in python 2 and it would take forever to update the libraries :(
@SilencingTrees but six uwu
@lynnesbian Don't uwu me!! I don't want to go through all that effort!
I do wonder when the community will start to actually move on to 3 lol
@SilencingTrees i have
it's python's fault for backporting so many of the new stuff to python 2, removing much of the motivation to upgrade
Someone make a program that ports all my code to python 3. Maybe it exists already 😛
@lynnesbian apt install php5.0:chatland:
I generally consider Python 3 the better Python. Relegating reduce to functools, though, is gonna make this always not a completely clean cut.
