py-wxpython-2.8: track the progress of transition to 3.0 and try to remove the port

Component: ports Version:
Keywords: Cc: jyrkiwahlstedt, jjstickel (Jonathan Stickel), petrrr, cooljeanius (Eric Gallager), Veence (Vincent)
Port: grass, py-dsv, py-pyface, py-robotframework-ride, py-wxpython-2.8

Description (last modified by mojca (Mojca Miklavec))

According to my counting there are currently up to three ports that are incompatible with wxPython 3.0 (see the initial ticket #38375):

2.8-only:

  • python/py-dsv (cca. 1000 lines of possibly abandoned Python code)

compiles with 3.0, but doesn't work properly:


fully compatible with 3.0:

I opened this ticket to track the progress towards the ideal world where supporting just wxPython 3.0 will be sufficient.

See ticket #46585 for py-pyface and py-mayavi.

I adjusted some links. Pyface developer claim that the software should be compatible with 3.0 by now and I updated the link to the issue tracker for RIDE.

py-mayavi is probably/hopefully resolved together with py-pyface as well?

Jonathan, can you test please?

I can test when pyface next releases. I don't follow regularly, so feel free to make a note here or contact me when that happens.

I've provided patches for latest pyface (and traitsui) on #50173. I left the note in the pyface port about QT being the preferred backend. I do believe it is the intent of enthought developers to transition to QT exclusively.

Vincent, I'm adding you to CC, hoping that you could help us get rid of wxPython 2.8 in grass (removal of grass 6 is also a valid option :).

I guess I'll simply remove DSV and keep hoping that a new release of robotframework-ride comes out soonish.
