Downloading modules from the internet?
I'm new her and I was wondering if it is possible to download custom modules from the web?
Yes, you can use stash for that. In most cases you can use its
pipcommand to install a module from PyPI automatically. If that doesn't work or the module is not on PyPI, you can download it manually with
wget, unpack it with
unzip, and move the correct folder to
Awesome! Thanks for your help 😊
Does anyone know how i can download urllib.request?
urllib.requestis part of the standard library.
That is a module from the Python 3 standard library. Pythonista currently uses Python 2, where you'd use
urllib2. If you're trying to run a script that imports
urllib.request, then it's written for Python 3 and can't run on the current Pythonista. (A Python 3 version of Pythonista is currently in beta, though as far as I know it won't be released for a while.)
Thanks for the info, I'll wait for the final release
try: # Python 3 and later from urllib.request import urlopen except ImportError: # Python 2 from urllib2 import urlopen
also, using the Pip command in Stash you can install from github repos using
pip install UserName/ProjectName
