ImportError: No module named requests

ItsMyCode |

In Python, if you try to import Requestswithout installing the module using pip, you will get no module named requests error.

In this tutorial, let’s look at installing the Requestsmodule correctly in different operating systems and solve no module named requests error.

ImportError: No module named requests

Requests are not a built-in module (it doesn’t come with the default python installation) in Python, you need to install it explicitly using the pip installer and then use it.

If you are getting an error installing pip checkout pip: command not found to resolve the issue.

Install Requests in OSX/Linux

The recommended way to install the requestsmodule is using pip or pip3 for Python3 if you have pip installed already.

Using Python 2

$ sudo pip install requests 
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Using Python 3

$ sudo pip3 install requests 
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Alternatively, if you have easy_install in your system, you can install requests using the below command.

Using easy install

$ sudo easy_install -U requests
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

For CentOs

$ yum install python-requests
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

For Ubuntu

To install requests module on Debian/Ubuntu for Python2:

$ sudo apt-get install python-requests
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And for Python3, the command is:

$ sudo apt-get install python3-requests
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Install Requests in Windows

In the case of windows, you can use pip or pip3 based on the Python version you have to install the requestsmodule.

$ pip3 install requests
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

If you have not added the pip.exe to the environment variable path, you can run the below command in Python 3, which will install the requests module.

$ py -m pip install requests
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
