[Resolved] Intellisense does not refresh installed ibPy package.

Nov 5, 2014 at 9:21 PM

I try to install libary IbPy. It seems to run, but for some reason the intellisense does not pick it up. I did do a refresh dB. I am running Python 2.7.

This is what I get through the Package Manager:

PM> easy_install ibpy
Searching for ibpy
Best match: ibpy 0.7.6-9.51
Adding ibpy 0.7.6-9.51 to easy-install.pth file

Using c:\python27\lib\site-packages
Processing dependencies for ibpy
Finished processing dependencies for ibpy
I get no intellisense for:
from ib.ext.Contract import Contract
from ib.ext.Order import Order
from ib.opt import Connection, message

I resolved it by placing all in the ib folder (run the install on setup file again).

Does that mean it didn't install properly the first time?

We may have failed to parse the easy-install.pth file correctly the first time. These files are meant to be directory names only, but people often put arbitrary Python code in them and we can't parse that.
