I am installing for the first time on a Windows machine. I first installed Python 3.6 and verified PIP is working fine. However, in following the instructions to install using PIP, I get the following error:

C:\Askbot>pip install askbot Collecting askbot Downloading askbot-0.10.2.tar.gz (8.1MB) 100% |████████████████████████████████| 8.1MB 156kB/s Complete output from command python setup.py egg_info: Traceback (most recent call last): File "<string>", line 1, in <module> File "C:\Users\MyUser\AppData\Local\Temp\pip-build-eukbfsgi\askbot\setup.py", line 135 ********************""" ^ SyntaxError: Missing parentheses in call to 'print'

---------------------------------------- Command "python setup.py egg_info"

failed with error code 1 in C:\Users\MyUser\AppData\Local\Temp\pip-build-eukbfsgi\askbot\

Python3 support seems to be on the way, since I find many from __future__ import print_function-statements. Whats the plan? Can I help?

My site is written in Python 3 and I want to add AskBot. Unfortunately, AskBot does not support Python3. Does anyone have any creative solutions to this problem? I am considering using a subdomain but I have never tried to share a database between two websites before. Is it even possible for me to integrate AskBot with my current Django project in this way? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Currently, branch 0.11.x supports Python 3. Thanks for the help of @martin-bts and other people from SuSE Linux.

No, Askbot (as of v0.10.2/ March 2017) does not support Pyton 3, please install latest Python 2.7 and try again.
