How to include a module

Post by john7 » Mon Mar 16, 2020 11:19 am

in wifi.py I have

Code: Select all

import network

class WIFI:
    def do_connect():
    #import network
    station = network.WLAN(network.STA_IF)
    station.active(True)
    if not station.isconnected():
        print('connecting to network...')
        station.connect('Niron', 'projects1234')
        while not station.isconnected():
            pass
    print('network config:', station.ifconfig())
in main.py

Code: Select all

#import wifi 
from wifi import WIFI
I get an error
ImportError: no module named 'wifi'
What should I do?

You forget to indent below def do_connect():.

It's copy/paste problem. In the code I have all indents. Besides the compiler alerts in case of bad indentation.

I use the Thonny IDE in case if it's important.

The error gets eaten, it's very annoying. Connect to the REPL and try to import wifi manually, then you will see the error that is preventing import.

Can you try adding self in def do_connect(self):?

I've made the following test in repl.

I'm connected when I put my personnel wifi network parameter.

Code: Select all

I (32594) network: CONNECTED
I (35534) event: sta ip: 192.168.100.83, mask: 255.255.255.0, gw: 192.168.100.254
I (35534) network: GOT_IP
network config: ('192.168.100.83', '255.255.255.0', '192.168.100.254', '192.168.100.254')

I should consider the following code to be able to provide SSID and password.

Code: Select all

import network

class WIFI(object):

    def __init__(self, ssid, passwd):
        self.ssid = ssid
        self.passwd = passwd

    def do_connect(self):
        self.station = network.WLAN(network.STA_IF)
        self.station.active(True)
        if not self.station.isconnected():
            print('connecting to network...')
            self.station.connect(self.ssid, self.passwd)
            while not self.station.isconnected():
                pass
        print('network config:', self.station.ifconfig())

conn = WIFI('Niron', 'projects1234')
conn.do_connect()

the code is working if I put it in main.py. The problem to import from another file.

As I understand Thonny looks in installation directory when it sees an import directive. May be I should provide the full path to the file?

  1. Create file wifi.py on your computer with the here bellow code
  2. Connect to your board rshell -p /dev/ttyUSB0
  3. Use rshell to copy wifi.py on your board cp wifi.py /pyboard/
  4. From rshell start repl
  5. You can now import your module from wifi import WIFI
  6. ...

Code: Select all
