Abstract

The current GRASS GIS version has partial support for Python 3. This project aims to update core GRASS components for Python 3 and update all the python modules, libraries and components like script package, python/ctypes, pygrass, temporal, wxGUI, etc. At the end of this project, GRASS GIS will be compatible with both the versions of python, i.e Python 2.7 and Python 3 with its GUI having support for wxPython 4.
