Hey @hackerbaby41, welcome to the Glitch forum!

I’m not quite sure what you mean when you say

so I’m hoping you can clarify. I’m thinking you might mean that you have a dependency that requires either a newer version of Python than what’s installed in the Glitch container, or that you you need Python3 instead of Python2, but can you help me understand better?

As far as Python support in Glitch, we’re pretty tightly focussed on making the JavaScript development experience the best we possibly can. When we’re “done” with that we might consider officially supporting more languages or platforms, but we have a lot of work ahead of us with what we’ve already got planned, so we wouldn’t be likely to get to that anytime in the foreseeable future.

We also have a small list of sample Python projects at https://glitch.com/python, in case you haven’t seen those.

Exactly he means slightly that he requires latest version to run python scripts

a good example here is asyncio functions which solemnly depend 98% on 3.6+

Python isn’t officially supported in Glitch, because Glitch projects run in AWS containers, AWS might have Python pre-installed.

Trying to update Python would use up all of your disk space.
