Extra line in a module with python blocks

Hi there,

I’m writing an OOT module. For now, the only block I’ve made is written
in
Python.
I follow the guide and everythins is ok until I run the top_block and
get
this error:

File “/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/mavlink/init.py”,
line
45, in
from mavlink_swig import *

FYI, “mavlink” is the name of my module.

Now, if I comment that line out everything seems to work fine. Is this a
serious issue or can I just go on using it this way?

I believe this issue has been corrected in recent weeks (Marcus Mueller
I
think handled it for us). No, if you just have Python blocks, then you
do
not require the “from xxx_swig import *” line, so you should be fine.
Just
remember that you’ve done this if you ever add a C++ block to your
project.

Hi Tom, hi Michael,

jep, fixed that, and my pull request was recently merged (thanks,
jcorgan :wink: ).

Sadly, the fix only applies to new modules, but the fix is basically the
same as commenting that line out.

Instead of commenting it out, you can be safe that your module will also
respect C++ blocks if you add some later, you can try-except-surround
that import statement like:

try:
from mavlink_swig import *
except ImportError as e:
pass

(compare [1])

Greetings,
Marcus
