You may experience the following error message in your Python code when trying to import
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'urlparse'
>>> import urlparse Traceback (most recent call last): File "<pyshell#3>", line 1, in <module> import urlparse ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'urlparse'
How to fix it and what is the reason this error occurs?
This error usually occurs because
urlparse has been renamed to
urllib.parse. So you need to
pip install urllib and then
import urllib and call
urllib.parse to make it work.
To accomplish this, follow the tutorial outlined next or simply try running this command in your terminal, console, shell, or command line:
pip install urllib
After that, you can use urllib.parse like so (source):
from urllib.parse import urlparse urlparse("scheme://netloc/path;parameters?query#fragment") o = urlparse("http://docs.python.org:80/3/library/urllib.parse.html?" "highlight=params#url-parsing") print(o)
ParseResult(scheme='http', netloc='docs.python.org:80', path='/3/library/urllib.parse.html', params='', query='highlight=params', fragment='url-parsing')
