It’s the end of an era. Python 2 is on its way out with only a few security and bug fixes forthcoming from now until its official retirement in 2020. Given this withdrawal of support and the fact that Python 3 has snazzier features, we are thrilled to announce that Scrapy Cloud now officially supports Python 3.
Scrapy Cloud has been with Scrapinghub since the beginning, but we decided some spring cleaning was in order. To that end, we’re proud to announce Scrapy Cloud 2.0!
Attention Kimono users: we've created an exporter so you can easily convert your projects from Kimono to Portia!

And it’s one of the many reasons why we love open source so much.
