So the other day I was working on Webmaker project on Mozilla Thimble. On the installation part I have a bit of problem where I have to run one of the Python application in order to get the server running.
And the error I get it's below:
bash-3.2$ python app.py Traceback (most recent call last): File "app.py", line 2, in <module> import bleach File "/Users/alihuta2002/htmlsanitizer.org/bleach/__init__.py", line 7, in <module> import html5lib ImportError: No module named html5lib
I'm going to write a tutorial on how to Install Python modules on your Unix, Linux or Mac OS X Machine.
So obviously I have installed Python, but this application needs some library to work with and the one I have problem with was html5lib so I have dig through some google and found a solution to fix this problem by installing this Python's modules manually. First I have to tell you that I don't know if there is an easy to accomplish this or not, but this is how I fixed it.
You must have Python installed in order to use the easy_install command.
So run this command on your terminal
sudo easy_install pip
After that you will have pip installed on your system. Where pip it is like a package manager where it will help you download and install Python modules easily.
Now we need to install html5lib by using the following command.
NOTE: If you have problem with other modules simply replace the html5lib with the one you need to install.
sudo pip install html5lib
Now that the installation of html5lib have been successfully installed on your system.
So the problem fixed and I can run the server with no problem.
I have this tutorial will help some of you, and if you have a better way please do share them with me as well :)
