Rather than create a new blog post each time that a pure python web application is upgraded or downgraded, I figured one reverse-chronological post was better.
2022, Sept 9: Transcrypt is no longer a Class A Pure Python Web Application solution
Transcrypt is fully-featured. It is well-documented. Through the years, responses to community questions have been quick an accurate. however one other requirement of a Class A system is that it is maintained. 6 months ago someone asked
I see several PRs open for 2 years. Is this no longer maintained? Is it accepting PRs?
The readme and GitHub release don’t have the latest version from Pypi either, so I am confused about what state this library is in.
Also, is any python 3.10 version on the horizon? Will PRs toward that (in a dedicated feature branch?) be accepted?emirko
And there has been no response.
This is particularly sad because an entire book on using React with Transcrypt has been written.
i really hope that the author(s) are just swamped with work and will bring this project up to date and start responding to its user community.
But until they do, I cannot classify this product as Class A because potential users might find themselves stuck with a product failing the “well-maintained” requirement of a Class A pure python web application solution.
