No module named pyb

Post by Theo.D » Wed Oct 31, 2018 3:36 pm

Hello everybody,

I just got a Pyboard V1.1 and I'm encountering a small problem... (I'm really a beginner...)
For information, I'm using a Mac and Pyzo 4.4.2 with Anaconda.

My problem is the following : I plug the Pyboard with a micro-USB/USB cable to my Mac, then the board shows up on my desktop. I open the folder (which looks like a storage device and is named PYBFLASH) and there are the and README.txt files in it. I double-click on the file and it opens itself in Pyzo. Then, whenever I try to write "import pyb" or "from pyb import ...", I get the following message "ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'pyb' ". I also tried "upyb"/"machine" and "umachine" but none of them are working.

So I would like to know if there is any solution :)
Thank you for your answers

It sounds like you might be trying to run the files on your Mac rather than on the pyboard.

Pyzo is a python interpreter that runs on the Mac, so it won't be able to find the pyb module.

You need to use a serial terminal program to connect to the serial port and get into the Micropython REPL. Then import pyb will work.
