Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.3.4
Keywords: Cc: jyrkiwahlstedt, kundor (Nicholas Matteo)
Port: python36 py36-readline

Description (last modified by ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt))

just upgraded to Sierra 10.12 so uninstalled everything and reinstalled what I actually use.

when installing python36 it reports to install py36-readline if using it by the command line, but I've searched for py36-readline and it doesn't appear to exist...

--->  Activating python36 @3.6.0b1_0+universal

To make this the default Python or Python 3 (i.e., the version run by the 'python' or 'python3' commands), run one or both of:

    sudo port select --set python python36
    sudo port select --set python3 python36

Sometimes we wait until a stable version of a language is released before adding third-party modules for it. I know I do that for php. Maybe that's also the case for python. python36 is currently at version 3.6.0b1, which is beta, not stable.

This is still the case now that Python 3.6.0 is released. python36 setup requests the installation of py36-readline, which doesn't exist. There is a port named py36-gnureadline.
