View Full Version : No module named test2

February 5th, 2010, 10:26 AM

In developing a boxee app, I've created a file in:

~/Library/ApplicationSupport/BOXEE/UserData/apps/myapp/ called test2.py

When I import this from my main.xml, the log gives me the error:

No module named test2

So it would appear that the main.xml cannot find my test2.py file. Any thoughts?

Exactly what is the location of your test2.py relative to the app directory?
It should be at the top level (in the same directory as the descriptor.xml).
My apps that import python scripts are working correctly with the file located there.

There are more details about exactly what should go where at http://developer.boxee.tv/App_Anatomy

Yeah, still not getting there... Here is the output from the log that I have...

I am going to attempt starting with a 'clean slate', but I don't think my boxee install is loading the root of my app into the python path.

Nevermind - I figured it out... /sigh...

Window id's have to be between 14000 and 14099...
