Google Summer of Code with Nuitka 1st Blog Post

Published: 06/10/2019

This week, I created nuitka standalone tests for boto3 and made changes to urllib3. Details can be seen in my PR:

I also created standalone tests for the python-dateutil and pyyaml packages. My pull request for that can be seen here:

In addition, I tested urllib3 bdist_nuitka compatibility with Nuitka by building the urllib3 dist wheel via Nuitka inside a virtual environment and then running urllib3’s pytests with the compiled version. It ended up raising an error which I reported here:

The plan for next week is to look more into this issue and also work on testing the other packages, python-dateutil and pyyaml are next on the list.
