I’m trying to write a script to check a website. It’s the first time I’m using selenium. I’m trying to run the script on a OSX system. Although I checked in /Library/Python/2.7/site-packages and selenium-2.46.0-py2.7.egg is present, when I run the script it keeps telling me that there is no selenium module to import.
This is the log that I get when I run my code:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/Users/GiulioColleluori/Desktop/Class_Checker.py", line 10, in <module> from selenium import webdriver ImportError: No module named 'selenium'
If you have pip installed you can install selenium like so.
pip install selenium
or depending on your permissions:
sudo pip install selenium
sudo pip3 install selenium
As you can see from this question pip vs easy_install pip is a more reliable package installer as it was built to improve easy_install.
I would also suggest that when creating new projects you do so in virtual environments, even a simple selenium project. You can read more about virtual environments here. In fact pip is included out of the box with virtualenv!
