How to upgrade third party app from python 2.x to python 3.7 that was made by Splunk Add On Builder?

Hi,
Any ideas how to upgrade Splunk third party app from python 2.x to pyhon 3.7 that was made with Splunk Add On Builder. The main changes in the app itself are in the Splunk libraries generated by the builder itself like jinjs2, solnlib, mako... Can I use 2to3 package and just transform all python 2 code to pyhon 3 code and not brake any dependencies? Any suggestion will be helpful?

We are developing Add-on Builder 3.0.0 which is Python3 & Splunk8 compatible. It will be released this or next month.
Technically all the 3rd party libs should be installed by pip3, and AoB codes need some manual updates as well. So please wait for the next release rather than doing it by some tools. Thanks.

Should this be tagged "python3"?
General question would be:
Will there be a python3/splunk8 compatible version of add-on builder?
