Installed Python modules do not seem to be accessible



In my Ci process I have Python requirements.txt setup to install mock and coverage packages. In CircleCi it runs the install portion without errors. How ever when I try to access “coverage” it tells me “No module named coverage”. I would greatly appreciate any help in sorting this out. I figure it is probably something pretty simple.

This is a fairly small project and it is working locally. Unfortunately locally I’m running on a Windows Platform. I have tried rebuilding with and without cache.

Contents of my requirements.txt file:


Here is the install dependency step output:

#!/bin/bash -eo pipefail
python3 -m venv venv
. venv/bin/activate
pip install -U pip setuptools virtualenv
pip install -r requirements.txt

Here is the call failure step:

#!/bin/bash -eo pipefail
python -m coverage run --rcfile=…/coverage.cfg -m unittest discover

/usr/local/bin/python: No module named coverage
Exited with code 1

I’ve tried at least 10 different ways to get this to work. Here are some of the details of what I’m using:

I am using CircleCi 2.0
I am using Python 3
I am using the circleci/python:3.6.1 Docker image


I don’t know if this is related, but you have the ellipsis () character in that filename. That doesn’t look right at all.


You also have a backtick here, is that right?


Yeah, I finally got things working late last night I had to restructure the repo a fair bit to get it setup right. In the end I discovered there problem was I needed to run the vertual environment set up before calling it. Then it worked fine.


Lol I thought that was a spec on my monitor and glanced it over thank you for pointing it out
