This adds a test that reproduces an error with BytecodeCache on Python 3:

marca@marca-mac:~/dev/git-repos/jinja2$ .tox/py33/bin/python -v jinja2.testsuite.bytecode_cache.ByteCodeCacheTestCase
test_simple (jinja2.testsuite.bytecode_cache.ByteCodeCacheTestCase) ... ERROR

    if isinstance(filename, unicode):
NameError: global name 'unicode' is not defined

and then fixes it by replacing unicode with jinja2._compat.text_type.

@msabramo msabramo Add test (jinja2.testsuite.bytecode_cache.ByteCodeCacheTestCase) for
BytecodeCache that fails on Python 3 because it uses `unicode`
@msabramo msabramo Fix Python 3 compatibility of BytecodeCache by checking for `if
isinstance(filename, text_type)` instead of `if isinstance(filename,

Oops. I just noticed that this is almost identical to PR #228.

This also fixes issue #227, which I don't think should've been closed.


@mitsuhiko Could you please merge this PR? This bug breaks Jinja2 on Python 3.


+1, this breaks pyramid_jinja2
