Issue #14 resolved
Mark created an issue

I have been getting an error when I try to submit the last line of the following code, even though PythonInR seems to be working fine for other simple procedures:

pyExec("import boto3")
pyExec("import pandas as pd")
pyExec("from boto3.dynamodb.conditions import Key")

pyExecp('dynamodb = boto3.resource("dynamodb",aws_access_key_id=mykey,aws_secret_access_key=mysecret,region_name=myregion)')

The error I get is as follows:

> pyExecp('dynamodb = boto3.resource("dynamodb",aws_access_key_id=mykey,aws_secret_access_key=mysecret,region_name=myregion)')
Error in pyExecp("dynamodb = boto3.resource(\"dynamodb\",aws_access_key_id=mykey,aws_secret_access_key=mysecret,region_name=myregion)") :

Any ideas?

    I would try to compare sys.path start your Python and do

    import sys

    and compare it with what you see in


    if there is something missing on the R side just add it.

    This is the first thing which comes to my mind but it is just a guess.

    Thanks for the prompt reply, Floridan. Can you provide an example or a reference on how to add anything that might be missing on the R side? I have a few items that are missing, but I'm not sure how to properly add them using PythonInR. For example, I'm missing 'C:\Users\<Username>\Miniconda3\lib\site-packages' on the R side. How would I go about adding this? Thank you, in advance for you help.

    PS. I love this package by the way!

    Thank you!

    sys.path is a list so you can just append things


    I don't know how the rest of your path looks so if you want to use \ instead of / you most likely have to do it like this.

    So I modified my sys.path to be exactly like the one I have running in python directly, but I see receive the same error as above unfortunately. Any other ideas or is this a bug of some sort?

    OK, So I uninstalled the miniconda distribution of python and installed the default python distribution and this seemed to fix this issue. This can probably be closed, unless you wanted to examine why this didn't work on miniconda.

    Thank you!

    It would be interesting but most likely hard to reproduce. So I will just close it.
