Issue with stash installing
Hello everyone. I’m very new at Pythonista and coding in general. Recently I installed Pythonista to my devices: iPad 4 mini and iPhone 7. I am trying to figure out the way of adding new libraries and think that Stash can help me. But the thing is I cannot install it to my iPhone. When i run launch_stash.py ImportError (cannot import name ‘stash’) occurs. I force quitted from the app before running launch_stash, but the error still occurs. I even reinstalled the app. The same result.
By the way, installing Stash was completed successfully when I installed it to my iPad.
Any kind of assistance will be much appreciated. Thank you in advance!
P.S. I’ve read the post
As I believe it reflects my problem, however the instructions in that post didn’t help. I did everything that was posted there but the same very error keeps occurring.

Did you do import requests as r; exec(r.get('http://bit.ly/get-stash').text)
What iOS version are you running?
Are you using pyrhon2 or python3 interpreter? (Does launch_stash have the #!python2 shebang?)
Check modules-> site-packages, site-packages2 and site-packages3 and let us know where stash is located.
No i did not do this. Shall i do it in an empty script? Or where?
iOS version is 12.4.1
I tried to use both, I mean I hold the play button and chose both python 2.7 and python 3.6 options in pythonista. As for shebang #!python 2 in launch_stash, I did not find it in my launcher.
Stash is located in site-packages
Oh. I’m sorry. Yes. I did it. I downloaded everything, but I cannot launch it.
Do you have a script or folder called stash that lives in your main documents folder?
@JonB I do. This is the script where this code located:
import requests as r; exec(r.get('http://bit.ly/get-stash').text)
The script is called stash.py and located in ‘This iPhone’ folder. I guess this is the main folder
Delete that file, and all should be good.
When you run a script, like launch_stash, that folder becomes the top of the path, so when it tries to import stash, it is trying to import your script named stash instead of site-packages/stash.
@JonB thank you very much, sir! It did work! Thank you!
