Python 2.7 Support

The last version of Eliot to support Python 2.7 was release 1.7.

If you are using Eliot with Python 2, keep the following in mind:

  • I will provide critical bug fixes for Python 2 until March 2020. I will accept patches for critical bug fixes after that (or you can pay for my services to do additional work).
  • Make sure you use an up-to-date setuptools and pip; in theory this should result in only downloading versions of the package that support Python 2.
  • For extra safety, you can pin Eliot in or requirements.txt by setting: eliot < 1.8.
  • Critical bug fixes for Python 2 will be released as 1.7.1, 1.7.2, etc..
