Refer to this article for information about each new release of Tethys Platform.
Python 3 Support¶
Python 3 officially supported in Tethys Platform.
Python 2 support officially deprecated and will be dropped when Tethys Platform 3.0 is released.
Tethys needs to migrate to Python 3 only so we can upgrade to Django 2.0, which only supports Python 3.
Migrate your apps to Python 3. After Tethys Platform 3.0 is released, Python 2 will no longer be supported by Tethys Platform.
100% Unit Test Coverage¶
Tests pass in Python 2 and Python 3.
Unit tests cover 100% of testable code.
Code base linted using flake8 to enforce PEP-8 and other Python coding best practices.
Automated test execution on Travis-CI and Stickler-CI whenever a Pull Request is submitted.
Added badges to the README to display build/testing, coverage, and docs status on github repository.
All of this will lead to increased stability in this and future releases.
See: Tethys Platform Repo for build and coverage information.
Customize Tethys Platform functionality.
Create your own gizmos.
Centralize app logic that is common to multiple apps in an extension.

TethysControllerto SDK to support class-based views in Tethys apps.
