I can't find pip and can't download any zip files.
python 3.6 and ArcGIS PRO
import requestsdir(requests)'ConnectTimeout', 'ConnectionError', 'DependencyWarning', 'FileModeWarning', 'HTTPError', 'NullHandler', 'PreparedRequest', 'ReadTimeout', 'Request', 'RequestException',.... snip .... 'urllib3', 'utils', 'warnings']
Did you try import requests in python 2.7.x?
or google for a pypi package eg https://pypi.python.org/pypi/requests
My first attempt was just that. But the response was No module named requests.
So, I tried the pypi, but had issues with blocked internet sites.
I was able to download a version, but it says I need pip to install.
pip doesn't come with arcpy 2.78
So, I tried (unsuccessfully) to load pip and/or get-pip.py.
I DID get a copy of setuptools to load, but it doesn't work on the requests install.
Hope this clarifies my problem,
Thanks for the reply
Sorry, All I have i python 3.6 for Pro and the version of python that comes with ArcMap 10.6 (2.7.???) both come with pip, easy_install and the requests package.
If you are absolutely stuck with ArcMap 10.3, I can't help...
Python 2.7.8, so close yet so far.... Python 2.7.9+ and 3.4+ come bundled with pip, but that doesn't help you. There are lots of suggestions on installing pip on SO: python - How do I install pip on Windows? - Stack Overflow . I would look midway down where folks updated comments in 2016.
If this is a one-off matter, i.e., you are only installing requests and nothing more, you could download the source code from GitHub and manually install it.
How do I manually install it?
Your question isn't really specific to Esri products, it is a general Python question. There are other forums/sites that address these types of questions better.
Installing a package manually can be really simple and straightforward or a real headache, it depends on the complexity of the package itself and its requirements. I have not personally tried to install requests manually; but looking on GitHub now, I see they provide a setup.py file. The gist of the workflow involves downloading the source code and extracting it, changing directories to the extracted code, and running python setup.py install.
Looks like it is the “headache” type.
During the manual install, I get the following error
IOError: No such file or directory: 'README.rst'
So, I think I am going to install 10.5.1 on a spare PC & do the python coding on it.
Thanks for your reply,
