django 1.5X already supports Python 3.X.I've been using Python 3 for a while and I prefer to keep using it for the new features it provides. So Is it possible to start a django app using Python 3 ? Thank you!

Yes, it's possible.

Right now we don't have a full Apache+mod_wsgi instance for Python 3.3 available as a one-click installer (but we're working on it).

For right now, I would recommend installing a new "Custom Application (listening on port)" and then simply setting Django up under that using the Django Development Server. You can install pip for python 3 and use that to install Django and any other libraries you need, and Django itself can create your raw application ("manage.py startproject").

Then, once the full Python 3.3 Apache+mod_wsgi instance is available from the Control Panel, move the existing application to be served from this new application and cease using the Django Development Server.

Hope that helps!

This isn't something we can provide (no ETA) but it should be done by the end of the month.
