It would seem a is in order, should it be a separate tag or alias for ?

Also, should or have different versions, or that would be irrelevant?

    $\begingroup$ With regards to versioning, the important differences between Python 2 and 3 would be rare enough that we shouldn't need distinct tags. Just specify which one in the question if necessary. $\endgroup$ – El'endia Starman May 24 '13 at 4:03

Python is the only scripting language used in Blender, any questions related to it can stay under as they might extend past the api and into the language a bit, say something like 'stringifying' an object str(obj) for use in the gui, no need to start derivations. Let's try and keep everything as clean as possible.

As mentioned below already exists, but keep in mind that Python based questions could be allowed to a degree as it relates to general Blender excluding scripting.


  • Do I need to download and install Python before using Blender?
  • What version of Python does Blender use and how can I tell?
  • $\begingroup$ At the moment, scripting exists and python doesn't... Besides, the version question still holds $\endgroup$ – JNF May 23 '13 at 19:05
  • $\begingroup$ @JNF python usage questions can be asked that don't directly relate to scripting but do relate to Blender. $\endgroup$ – iKlsR May 23 '13 at 19:06
  • $\begingroup$ So you're saying two separate tags are in order? $\endgroup$ – JNF May 23 '13 at 19:09
  • $\begingroup$ @JNF quite possibly, I have edited it into the answer. $\endgroup$ – iKlsR May 23 '13 at 19:10
  • $\begingroup$ Thank you. That wasn't clear from the previous version of your answer. $\endgroup$ – JNF May 23 '13 at 19:17

I think it would make sense to have separate tags at least for python-2.x and python-3.x to keep compatibility straight. These two versions of Python are not perfectly compatible, and if either the OP or the answerer ever wants to include a code snippet, it could be useful to have these tags.
