Asked By – Chris B.
I’ve got a Python project using PyDev in Eclipse, and PyDev keeps generating false errors for my code. I have a module
settings that defines a
settings object. I import that in module
b and assign an attribute with:
from settings import settings settings.main = object()
In some of my code–but not all of it, statements like:
from settings import settings print settings.main
… generate “Undefined variable from import: main” messages in the Eclipse code error pane, even though the code runs without a problem. How can I correct these?
Now we will see solution for issue: How do I fix PyDev “Undefined variable from import” errors?
For code in your project, the only way is adding a declaration saying that you expected that — possibly protected by an
if False so that it doesn’t execute (the static code-analysis only sees what you see, not runtime info — if you opened that module yourself, you’d have no indication that main was expected).
To overcome this there are some choices:
If it is some external module, it’s possible to add it to the
forced builtinsso that PyDev spawns a shell for it to obtain runtime information (see http://pydev.org/manual_101_interpreter.html for details) — i.e.: mostly, PyDev will import the module in a shell and do a
diron the classes found in the module to present completions and make code analysis.
You can use Ctrl+1 (Cmd+1 for Mac) in a line with an error and PyDev will present you an option to add a comment to ignore that error.
It’s possible to create a
stubmodule and add it to the
predefinedcompletions (http://pydev.org/manual_101_interpreter.html also has details on that).
