Description from extension meta

Automatically redirect to a specific Python 3 version's documentation

Image from store py3redirect
Description from store Google search results very often have links to Python 2 docs page. However, if you are programming in Python 3, switching to version 3 docs constantly may be pretty annoying. Same thing if you're not using the latest version of Python 3 and want to always see a specific version. This extension does that for you. This extension is open-source software (under MIT License) and its source code is available at https://github.com/m4tx/py3redirect

  • (2020-02-15) Harold Martin: Thanks for this!
  • (2019-11-29) Boris Verkhovskiy: Works well but is abandoned. There are some pages that were moved that it doesn't work for. For example https://docs.python.org/2/library/stringio.html to https://docs.python.org/3/library/io.html#io.StringIO. Someone contributed a fix on github, but the author isn't around to accept it. Must-have extension if you write Python.
  • (2019-05-13) Piotr Dąbrowski: Exactly what I was looking for
  • (2018-10-25) عمار فيصل: Exactly what a python3 coder needs
  • (2017-01-04) Ryan Jarvis: Exactly what I wanted.
  • (2017-01-02) Randall White: Great idea.
  • (2017-01-02) Stefan “gange” Gangefors: I'd like the option to chose which py3 version it redirects to. Otherwise it works fine.
  • (2016-09-07) Chris Harrel: Perfect
  • (2016-09-06) Jesús Gómez: Hace tiempo que deseaba algo como esto. Es muy fastidioso tener que cambiar la versión de 2 a 3 en la página de documentación siempre.
