This library is a very thin wrapper around lib2to3 to utilize it to make Python 2 code more modern with the intention of eventually porting it over to Python 3.
It does not guarantee, but it attempts to spit out a Python 2/3 compatible codebase. The code that it generates has a runtime dependency on six.
Unicode Literal Control:
- By default modernize will wrap literals with the six helpers. This is useful if you want to support Python 3.1 and Python 3.2 without bigger changes.
- Alternatively there is the --compat-unicode flag which does not change unicode literals at all which means that you can take advantage of PEP 414.
- The last alternative is the --future-unicode flag which imports the unicode_literals from the __future__ module. This requires Python 2.6 and later and will require that you mark bytestrings with b'' and native strings in str(b'') or something similar that survives the transformation.
