Question

Is it possible to use deprecated (Python 2.7) transformers on the FME Server in Cloud?

We have a SnakeGridProjector transformer that we would like to use in one of our pipelines. We are wondering if it is possible to use it despite FME advicing against old python versions or if there is any better alternative? The projector is a must for the pipeline

My recommendation would be to contact the developer and ask that they migrate the code to Python 3.x. It's usually fairly easy.

BTW, on this page you'll notice that this transformer fails the automated tests by Safe Software, so it needs some looking into regardless, it seems.

Since it's a paid transformer, I'd assume that it should be possible to get support.
