[2.0.4] Jython scripting: import Python (pip installed) module like a fake data generator (fake-data)

Asked by Nick on 2020-12-06

Using manual I added the path to Python site-packages

- make a folder Lib/site-packages in your SikulixAppData folder
- add a file sites.txt into that folder
- in the file have a line containing the absolute path to your Python site-packages folder
- restart the IDE

But I have an error:

[error] script [ 10000messages ] stopped with error in line 12
[error] TypeError ( find_module() takes exactly 3 arguments (2 given) )

from faker import Faker
faker = Faker()

apparently, the Python module pkgutil (used inside faker) is not compatible with Jython 2.7.1

Python modules, that are itself written completely in Python language level 2.7, but rely on the Python eco-system, might not work in the Jython environment.

I have no idea for a solution, besides running the Python stuff in a Python subprocess and exchange data with files.
This is an option, if the thing is not time critical.

@RaiMan thanks for your fast answer.

I found another PIP fake data generator that works very good "fake-data"
