hi all, trying out pulumi/python/azure and it doesn't work šŸ˜® probably a stupid beginner mistake. pulumi installed, logged into azure, created a pulumi project, created a virtualenv and installed requirements. pulumi up fails to import pulumi according the output. But if i start python i can import the module.

Did you activate the virtual env with the install requirements? Also what steps did you create the project? (whats in the requirements.txt file?)


02/20/2020, 8:56 PM
yes the virtual env is activated
pulumi new azure-project --force (starts in a checked out git repos)
requirements.txt have the following lines pulumi>=1.0.0 pulumi-azure>=1.0.0
i am a little bit stumped as the same shell (with same virtualenv) imports the pulumi lib just fine from an interactive python prompt. (i'm running fish shell, could this confuse pulumi?)

hmm maybe the shell, or maybe the version of python. I don't know I just saw you said might be a noob question wanted to make sure your bases were covered. here are the steps I tried to recreate it.
Copy code
kev:/c/Users/Kev$ cd azure-check/
kev:/c/Users/Kev/azure-check$ pulumi new azure-python

This command will walk you through creating a new Pulumi project.

Enter a value or leave blank to accept the (default), and press <ENTER>.
Press ^C at any time to quit.

project name: (azure-check) project description: (A minimal Azure Python Pulumi program)
Created project 'azure-check'

Please enter your desired stack name.
To create a stack in an organization, use the format <org-name>/<stack-name> (e.g. `acmecorp/dev`).
stack name: (dev)
Created stack 'dev'

azure:environment: The Azure environment to use (`public`, `usgovernment`, `german`, `china`): (public)
azure:location: The Azure location to use: (WestUS)
Saved config

Your new project is ready to go!

To perform an initial deployment, run the following commands:

   1. virtualenv -p python3 venv
   2. source venv/bin/activate
   3. pip3 install -r requirements.txt

Then, run 'pulumi up'

kev:/c/Users/Kev/azure-check$ virtualenv -p python3 venv
Already using interpreter /usr/bin/python3
Using base prefix '/usr'
New python executable in /c/Users/Kev/azure-check/venv/bin/python3
Also creating executable in /c/Users/Kev/azure-check/venv/bin/python

and its failing to import the pulumi module and not failing to load a plugin like this example

because I think the FAQ has something on that

Running python 3.8.1 will try a 3.6.x and bash to see if that works

3.8.1 works fine for me. You're on Windows or Linux?

Linux (ubuntu 19.10) i am really confused as i can import the module fine when i launch the python shell from the same prompt.
@nice-baker-66367 yes it states it cannot find the pulumi module. I actuall became even more confused when i tried to set a breakpoint just before the import to be able to inspect the environment but while i see the (pdb) prompt it doesn't stop. i will revert to safe ground with bash to validate that it isn't my fish shell that is badly configured
so a bit more digging and it seems like pyenv and pulumi doesn't work together. for me it is easy to recreate by: ā€¢ install pyenv and pyenv-virtualenv ā€¢ create a pulumi project ā€¢ create a new pyenv-virtualenv ā€¢ run pyenv local [new venv] ā€¢ do pip install -r requirements ā€¢ pulumi exists in the active shell as you can import the pulumi module from a prompt ā€¢ run pulumi up and see it fail ā€¢ unless you have installed pulumi in the global python I have no idea (as of now) if this is a pulumi or pyenv problem. but fish as shell works fine at least
