[wingide-users] Wing cant import the amara module while ipython can

Hi there. Thanks for your reply.

That did not help me or pylint. :-) But I found a workaround.

I opened the egg, which is a zip file, and copyed the folder named "amara"
into the base directory of my source code. After that, pylint imports amara

Apparantly, a folder with code is regarded as a module IF there's a file in
that folder called __init__.py. I believe I've heard that before somewhere

From what I could find on Google, pylint does not support eggs.

Med venlig hilsen/Kind regards
