Black Mamba Installation error
Hi all, first post here, but I've been a lurker on the forum for a while and I've been using Pythonista for a few months now, think its an amazing App for iOS.
OK, I have a problem, I'm trying to install Black Mamba as I would love to have all those cool short-cuts and features it brings, however I can't seem to install it, I put the 'import requests....' command (as stated in on the Black Mamba site) into the interactive console prompt but it returns a SyntaxError. It seems to be reporting an issue with an XML document header.
I know Black Mamba hasn't had any updates for over 2 years, so do I have to assume its no longer working with the latest version of Pythonista and can't be installed?
Also, if it does still work, how stable is it, do people still use it, does it crash? is there something similar if Black Mamba is now longer suitable.
Much appreciated if you could help me out.

Thanks for the replies guys. However I don't think @zrzka does anything with the codebase anymore its been 2 years since it was last updated.
I suppose if the Black Mamba 'add-on' is no longer maintained or supported its probably best not to use it anyway, shame, it looked really promising being able to add more features and keyboard shortcuts to my workflow.
Again, thanks for coming back to me.

He is still alive on on twitter
Ok... if there is somewhere on the web where I can publicly go hang my head in shame then let me know, because I've 'fixed' my issue.
I had a typo in my installation command. I checked and double checked, I swear. Came back to it this afternoon and 'pop' I see the typo in an instant. My bad, sorry for wasting time.
Mods: Feel free to delete this thread.

I'm alive, don't worry, but my focus shifted a bit and I no longer have time to actively develop/maintain Black Mamba/monitor forum. This is the reason why I asked if there's anyone who wants to maintain it two years ago.
But I still passively maintain it which means that if you provide a PR, I'll test it, merge it and will release new version.
If there's anyone who wants to take over, feel free to ping me. I'll happily add you to the project and even transfer ownership later.
