[Solved] no module named urllib.parse (How should I install it?)

I’m trying to run a REST API on CentOS 7, I read urllib.parse is in Python 3 but I’m using Python 2.7.5 so I don’t know how to install this module.

I installed all the requirements but still can’t run the project.

When I’m looking for a URL I get this (I’m using the browsable interface):


ImportError at /stamp/
No module named urllib.parse

Solution #1:

If you need to write code which is Python2 and Python3 compatible you can use the following import

    from urllib.parse import urlparse
except ImportError:
     from urlparse import urlparse
Respondent: Agnaldo Marinho

Solution #2:

You want urlparse using python2:

from urlparse import urlparse

Solution #3:

With the information you have provided, your best bet will be to use Python 3.x.

Your error suggests that the code may have been written for Python 3 given that it is trying to import urllib.parse. If you’ve written the software and have control over its source code, you should change the import to:

from urlparse import urlparse

urllib was split into urllib.parse, urllib.request, and urllib.error in Python 3.

I suggest that you take a quick look at software collections in CentOS if you are not able to change the imports for some reason.
You can bring in Python 3.3 like this:

  1. yum install centos­-release­-SCL
  2. yum install python33
  3. scl enable python33

Solution #4:

Install six, the Python 2 and 3 Compatibility Library:

$ sudo -H pip install six

Use it:

from six.moves.urllib.parse import urlparse

(edit: I deleted the other answer)

Solution #5:

python3 supports urllib.parse and python2 supports urlparse

If you want both compatible then the following code can help.

import sys

if ((3, 0) <= sys.version_info <= (3, 9)):
    from urllib.parse import urlparse
elif ((2, 0) <= sys.version_info <= (2, 9)):
    from urlparse import urlparse

Update: Change if condition to support higher versions if (3, 0) <= sys.version_info:.

For Python 3, use the following:

import urllib.parse

Solution #8:

Manually include urllib.parse:

Solution #9:

The urlparse in Python 2.7.11 was renamed to urllib.parse in Python 3.
So, if you have a code such from urlparse import urlparse, I suggest you change it to from urllib.parse import urlparse
Since you are using python 2.7.5, using the below will solve your poblem

from urlparse import urlparse

Instead of from urllib.parse import urlparse

Solution #10:

The problem was because I had a lower version of Django (1.4.10), so Django Rest Framework need at least Django 1.4.11 or bigger. Thanks for their answers guys!

Here the link for the requirements of Django Rest:
