I keep getting "no module named 'module.py'" after installing the package. How do I fix this?

Asked 2 years ago

I've recently made the switch to Python 3, and I'm having a hard time importing "module.py" - the error message says "ModuleNotFoundError: No module named module.py". What's the problem here?

Keep in mind that Python has two types of imports - relative and absolute imports. If you're using absolute imports, make sure to set your Python path like this "export PYTHONPATH='PYTHONPATH:/.../" for MacOS and Linux, or set "PYTHONPATH=..." for Windows. If absolute imports don't work, then relative probably will. Make sure to try them both out and see which one doesn't trigger the error.
