Other Credits

  • The backported super() and range() functions are derived from Ryan Kelly’s magicsuper module and Dan Crosta’s xrange module.
  • The futurize and pasteurize scripts use lib2to3, lib3to2, and parts of Armin Ronacher’s python-modernize code.
  • The python_2_unicode_compatible decorator is from Django. The implements_iterator and with_metaclass decorators are from Jinja2.
  • The exec_ function and some others in future.utils are from the six module by Benjamin Peterson.
  • The raise_ and raise_with_traceback functions were contributed by Jeff Tratner.
  • A working version of raise_from was contributed by Varriount (GitHub).
  • Documentation is generated with Sphinx using the sphinx-bootstrap theme.
  • past.translation is inspired by and borrows some code from Sanjay Vinip’s uprefix module.
