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

Continuous integration

CI is set up in Codeship to run against PRs and commits.
