Hologram SDK on Python 3.6.5


#1

So I would like to get the Hologram sdk working for Python 3.6.5. It seems that currently only 2.7 is supported. When will a 3.6.5 version be released? Has anyone built it for 3.6.5?

Hi David,

Thanks for reaching out! I’m Pia from the Product team here at Hologram. Currently, we do not have a timeline for when Python 3 will be supported by the SDK, but we will update the community when we do.

What project you’re working on? It’d be helpful for us to understand your compatibility needs for future planning.

In the meantime, there are also some experimental ports of our SDK available at https://github.com/hologrameducation if you’d like to browse those.

Pia, is there a way for the user community to influence the priority of the python 3.x update? For my application, it is at the top of the list.

Thanks,

Hi Aaron,

Yes, I’m actively checking out feasibility for the update. What features from python 3 are important for your application? As I work through parity requirements, it’ll be helpful to get that understanding to make sure it works for you.

Thanks,

Pia

Thanks for giving this your attention Pia,

I am running a Nova on RasPi3 with NOOBS Raspian and miniconda python 3.4.3.

Specific sdk commands I use are:
.sendSMS
.enableSMS
.disableSMS
.connect
.disconnect
location
signal_strength

In addition to the python 3 compatibility, improving the error handling for failed .sendSMS would be helpful.

My main reason for running python3 is to use microsoft ell and opencv
