contextlib2 is a backport of the standard library's contextlib module to earlier Python versions.
It also serves as a real world proving ground for possible future enhancements to the standard library version.
contextlib2 currently has no dependencies.
Local testing is currently just a matter of running python test_contextlib2.py.
You can test against multiple versions of Python with tox:
pip install tox tox
Versions currently tested in tox are:
- CPython 2.7 (also tested in Codeship)
- CPython 3.4 (also tested in Codeship)
- CPython 3.5
To install all the relevant runtimes on Fedora 23:
sudo dnf install python python3 pypy pypy3 sudo dnf copr enable -y mstuchli/Python3.5 sudo dnf install python35-python3
