patois 0.1.0

Python VM compatibility library

patois is an MIT-licensed compatibility library designed to smooth over differences in various Python VMs, e.g., CPython vs. Jython vs. PyPy vs. IronPython. It provides utility functions with the goal of making it easier to write Python code that is compatible with all the major Python VMs. See the documentation for more information on what is provided.

patois supports Python 2.7, because it is the newest Python that is widely supported by the major VMs.


This package was inspired by Six.


To install patois, simply:

$ pip install patois

Or, if you absolutely must:

$ easy_install patois

But, you really shouldn’t do that.

If you want to vendor the lib for some reason, it’s a single file, so just drop it into your project.
