            Running into an error when trying to pip install python-docx
            Asked 2022-Feb-06 at 17:04

            I just did a fresh install of windows to clean up my computer, moved everything over to my D drive and installed Python through Windows Store (somehow it defaulted to my C drive, so I left it there because Pycharm was getting confused about its location), now I'm trying to pip install the python-docx module for the first time and I'm stuck. I have a recent version of Microsoft C++ Visual Build Tools installed. Excuse me for any irrelevant information I provided, just wishing to be thorough. Here's what's returning in command:



            Answered 2022-Feb-06 at 17:04

            One of the dependencies for python-docx is lxml. The latest stable version of lxml is 4.6.3, released on March 21, 2021. On PyPI there is no lxml wheel for 3.10, yet. So it try to compile from source and for that Microsoft Visual C++ 14.0 or greater is required, as stated in the error.

            However you can manually install lxml, before install python-docx. Download and install unofficial binary from Gohlke Alternatively you can use pipwin to install it from Gohlke. Note there may still be problems with dependencies for lxml.

            Of course, you can also downgrade to python3.9.

            EDIT: As of 14 Dec 2021 the latest lxml version 4.7.1 supports python 3.10

            You should add some headers to your request because the website is blocking your request. In your specific case, it will be enough to add a User-Agent:

            Answered 2021-Aug-12 at 09:43

            This is not how type hinting works. To know that an input of etree._Element always results in a return of etree._Element and an input of None always results in None the IDE would need to parse the function, analyse all paths and get to that result.

            I highly doubt that it is build to do that. Instead the IDE simply parses for annotations in the signatures and returns them as hint - type hints are just that - they are not enforced on code execution.

            Adding multiple loop outputs to single dictionary
            Asked 2021-Aug-04 at 05:38

            I'm learning how to use python and trying to use beautiful soup to do some web scraping. I want to pull the product name and product number from the saved page I'm referencing in my python code, but have provided a snippet of a section where this script is looking. They're located under a div with the class name and a span with the id product_id

            Essentially, my python script does put in all the product names, but once it gets to the product_id loop, it overwrites the initial values from my first loop. Looking to see if anyone can point me in the right direction.



            Answered 2021-Aug-04 at 01:32

            If I understand the question correctly, you're trying to get all the names and productIds and store them. The problem you're running into is, in the dictionary, your values are getting overwritten.

            One solution to that problem would be to initialize your python dictionary values as lists, like so:
