User 503 | 7/22/2014, 8:26:31 PM

Python 3.4.1 Windows 7 pip, virtualenv installed.

When I run the command: pip install graphlab-create==0.9 I get an error beginning with this: Command python setup.py egg_info failed with error code 1... Log file attached. Any help is appreciated.

Are you on virtual box? I don't think we support native Windows without a virtual machine.

Unfortunately, Python 3 is no supported at this moment. Please use python2.7 with Graphlab Create.

We just posted step-by-step instructions to run GraphLab Create in a VM on Windows. Give it a try. http://graphlab.com/products/create/virtual_install.html

Are there any plans to support Python 3 in near term (next 6 months or so).

Hi @abisen,

We are really committed to serve the Python community, and Python 3 has always been on our road map. Though there is no explicit plan for it yet, we will prioritize as we here more voice and use cases from the community.

Thanks, -jay

Thanks @JayGu,

For me the biggest reason for Python 3 is the inherent unicode text support which makes handling text much easier especially the text with mixed languages.

@abisen, thanks for your input. We will definitely keep it in consideration.

Let me add my request for Python 3 support.

Another use-case for python 3 is rpy2 for passing things back and forth to R. The newer versions of rpy2 no longer support python 2.x (!).
