This update builds and imports on 2.7 and 3.6, thanks to Arch user andybz. During the byte-compiling, there are syntax errors in both 2.7 and 3.6 in site-packages/tablib/packages. namcap also complains about some files there in 2.7. I don't know whether these issues are serious or not, but they don't fail makepkg. If this version doesn't work for you, post and we'll try to figure out what to do about it.

So this package breaks with the ArchLinux update to Python 3.6.

I've got a PKGBUILD that updates it to 0.11.3 and adds a patch to fix it for the newer Python.

Hopefully @djscholl can update python-tablib here.

Arch version bump for the change to a split package which builds for both Python 3 and 2. Thanks to Arch user carl.george for his guidance and draft PKGBUILD.

There isn't specific documentation for it, but there are bits and pieces scattered through the PKGBUILD documentation. Search for the word "split" in these links.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PKGBUILD
https://www.archlinux.org/pacman/PKGBUILD.5.html

Here is are some examples of a split packages I maintain.

Here you go, I went ahead and wrote one for you.

Before you can upload a source package based on this, you have to click "File Request" and ask a TU to merge the two packages.

@carl.george: I would consider making a split package, but I don't know how. I reviewed the Arch docs I knew about and searched the wiki and forum but didn't find anything. Do you have a URL for split Python packaging?

Please consider replacing this package and the python3 version with a split package that supports python 2 and 3.

Please consider replacing this package and the python2 version with a split package that supports python 2 and 3.

This package as of pkgrel=2 is now intended to be Python 3, and python2-tablib has been forked as a separate AUR package. Unfortunately, this package does not work for me. I apologize for uploading a non-working PKGBUILD. I did this because I corrected and updated the PKGBUILD, and I wanted to make those improvements available, even though they are not enough to make it work. 0.9.11 is the last upstream release. The breakage I am seeing may have been fixed in recent commits on github, but I have to research this. If you know more about this than I do, please post your advice.

New AUR package, forked from python-tablib for applications that are not ready to switch to Python 3. My plan is to convert python-tablib to a Python 3 package.

Please move to python2-tablib, this is the wrong name for it.
