Friends,


This morning I uploaded 'snapshot' release 15.07.0 to PyPI:
http://pypi.python.org/pypi/pywws/

From a user point of view this doesn't change much. It adds a couple of
new features: multiple media in Twitter messages and date & time in wind
rose (and plot) titles.

As before, if upgrading from any version before 14.02.dev1143 you must
run pywws-reprocess with the -u option to re-interpret your old raw
data. I advise backing up your raw data before doing this.

Good evening, did the pip upgrade, now I have a distribution not found on pytz (which is installed). Any ideas?

Regards,
Joakim

Was pytz installed with pip? Does it show in the output of 'pip list'?

Yes, Pytz was installed with pip, Pytz is listed with pip list. But pip list also raise an error message "warning: can not find svn location for distribute===0.6.24" and another message with insecureplatformwarning

My list (on a Pi) is similar to that, but a bit longer. On my desktop
machine the versions are very different and there's no distribute at
all. The problem seems to be related to pkg_resources, which is part of
pip/setuptools.

I just tried doing a minimal pip install of pywws in a virtual
environment (see
http://docs.python-guide.org/en/latest/dev/virtualenvs/) on my Pi and it
works fine. Output of 'pip list' is as follows:

(venv)jim@firefly ~/weather/pywws $ pip list
libusb1 (1.4.0)
pip (7.1.0)
pytz (2015.4)
pywws (15.7.0)
setuptools (18.0.1)
tzlocal (1.2)
wheel (0.24.0)

I suggest upgrading setuptools first (sudo pip install -U setuptools),
then you should be able to remove distribute (sudo pip uninstall
distribute). Don't uninstall distribute until setuptools has been
upgraded or pip will stop working.
