Beta Support for GraphLab Create on Python 3.4

User 16 | 5/2/2016, 8:52:07 PM

I'm happy to announce beta support for Python 3.4.

To install follow the instruction below, based on your operating system:

Windows pip install

Mac OS X pip install

Linux pip install

Once you have install GraphLab Create, you may need to set your product key. You can do this by executing the following Python code: import graphlab graphlab.product_key.set_product_key('<enter your product key>')

Where <enter your product key> is replaced by your product key value.

Next, restart your Python, IPython or IPython Notebook session and verify update: graphlab.product_key.get_product_key()

If you haven't used GraphLab Create before, you can sign up for a free trial here:

Note: Currently we only support Python 3.4. Support for Python 3.5 is coming soon.

Please let me know if you have any issues with GraphLab Create on Python 3.4.

Thanks, Toby

@Toby - Sounds interesting. Any guidance on - Stability - Performance - benefits in using 3.4 or 3.5, except they are newer versions of python?

@Kevin_McIsaac -

I think it's quite stable, we've done lots of automated testing, but we haven't had many real users test it yet. That's why it's in beta. We have not done deep performance comparisons, but it should be about the same; all of the heavy computational work is done in C++ and that hasn't changed.

There aren't any benefits of using GraphLab Create in python 3.4 vs python 2.7. The functionality is intended to be exactly the same. We just want our customers to be able to use our product regardless of what Python version they pick.

Hi Toby,

I am one of those pesky windows 32 bit users that have suddenly encountered a problem that I have never had before with software. In that, there is no 32-bit version.

Amazon AWS is not really an option for me - are there any other options you could offer - I'm on the Coursera Machine learning course and setting up my system before work starts in earnest is a priority for me.

I am interested in particular because the python version is 3.5 and the Jupyter system I have downloaded does not have the python 2 option. I don't want to downgrade if possible but will consider other packages such as R if the graphics are suitable. (nightmare!!)

If you could help I would be very grateful.

Hi @cres - We have never supported 32 bit machines on any platform, or any version of Python. So your issue isn't related to our support of Python 3.

We aren't planning on supporting 32 bit machines any time soon. Why is AWS not an option?

I'm happy to announce the new version of GraphLab Create (version 1.10) includes beta supports for both Python3.5 and Python 3.4.

@jypucca - What Jupyter kernel are you running and what URL did you use to install graphlab create?
