Error when importing flask
stef728384 last edited by
When I import flask I get the error below. I had this before and resolved it by reinstalling pythonista. After reinstalling I can import flask without issues (I am not really using it yet in my scripts but plan to do so soon), but later it fails again.
Any idea what could be wrong?

@stef728384 , sorry this is not much help to you. But just say I have done an import of flask on the 301011and 211066 betas and it appears ok.
@stef728384 did you try to reinstall flask instead of reinstalling Pythonista?
With StaSh a tool written by a forum contributor, you can pip install/uninstall pure python Libs. I know it's not an answer, but it's less drastic than having to reinstall Pythonista

Thank you for your reply.
I see in stash that flask was not installed using pip... I could install it with pip but I'm afraid for weird side effects..
I suspect it must be something I installed which are causing this issues. I did install a few scripts using ptinstaller. I uninstalled them but still same error. I did install some packages using pip, like boto3. I'll check what others I installed using pip.

I had a feeling boto3 or its dependencies were causing this issue, and seemed to be right.
I reinstalled Pythonista3 and imported flask without issues. Then I installed ptinstaller and stash and could still import flask (as expected). Then I installed boto3 (and deps) via pip/stash.
Restarted pythonista and tried to import flask. Then I received this error again!
Now I just installed flask via pip and this seems to work. I can now import flask and boto3.
