Re: python SDK error

Dropboxer

Thanks for trying that.

 

I did find this issue on the requests GitHub that indicates this should be fixed in 2.18.1 though:

 

https://github.com/requests/requests/issues/4160

 

Can you try adding the print statement in dropbox.py directly (i.e., our library, not your dbox.py) to see if it's somehow picking up a different version?

 

If that's what's happening you should also be able to see where it's coming from by printing requests.__file__ .

Re: python SDK error

Dropboxer

I can reproduce this with requests==2.18.0, but not requests==2.18.1.

 

Can you double check that 2.18.1 is actually getting used, and not 2.18.0? E.g., try doing this right before the API call, like you're doing with the Dropbox library:

 

import requests
print(requests.__version__)

Re: python SDK error

I get same version output of request by putting print __version__ statement directly into dropbox.py, quite strange...

 

But I resolve this issue by fully remove the dropbox,requests package inside the ~/.local/lib/python2.7/site-packages and reinstall with pip

and it works, thanks for support!

Re: python SDK error

Explorer | Level 3

Hi

 

I'm trying to create an app on my phone that uses dropbox API like folder. Now i'm using kivy librarie with python, and buildozer to create and pushing the app on my phone. In my buildozer requirements i have:

 

six==1.10.0,
typing==3.6.1,
urllib3==1.21.1,
requests==2.18.1

 

Part of my code where i'm using dropbox is: 

 

def connect_to_database(path):

TOKEN = "my_token"

yourpath = '/INVENTARIO.xlsx'

try:
print("Dentro de connect")
dbx = dropbox.Dropbox(TOKEN)
print(str(dbx.users_get_current_account()))

for entry in dbx.files_list_folder('').entries:
print(entry.name)
metadata_name = dbx.files_get_metadata('/INVENTARIO.xlsx')
print(metadata_name)

except Exception as e:
print(e)

 

Everytime that i interact with dropbox in my logcat when app is running on my phone i got:

 

ValueError: Timeout value connect was Timeout(connect=None, read=None, total=None), but it must be an int, float or None.

10-26 08:04:03.906 8658 8696 I python : File "/home/isabel-labenac/Escritorio/applabenac/.buildozer/android/platform/build-armeabi-v7a/build/python-installs/applabenac/urllib3/util/timeout.py", line 137, in _validate_timeout

 

I dont know what is the problem, because, when i try the app on my computer everything goes fine, but when i want to create the app, in the moment when runs on phone this happens.

 

Thans in advance

Re: python SDK error

@kaamoo_api This should have been fixed by v2.18.1 of requests. It sounds like perhaps your app on your phone somehow isn't actually using that version. Can you try adding some logging to see what version is actually being used there?

Re: python SDK error

Explorer | Level 3

@Greg-DB , You were right, I had a problem declaring the version and even when I had it installed, due to a bug with buildocer, the program could not update. After performing a buildozer cleanup and re-declaring requests with version 2.18.1, communication with Dropbox already works correctly.
Thanks for your answer!
Best regards

Re: python SDK error

Hi again!

 

When i solved the problem woth requests 2.18.1, the next time that i use the app shows me this error:

 

11-05 12:15:52.071 5473 5509 I python : HTTPSConnectionPool(host='api.dropboxapi.com', port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /2/users/get_current_account (Caused by NewConnectionError('<urllib3.connection.HTTPSConnection object at 0xe8b980a0>: Failed to establish a new connection: [Errno 7] No address associated with hostname'))

 

I dont understand what is the problem now.

 

Thanks in advance

Re: python SDK error

Dropboxer

@kaamoo_api Based on the error "No address associated with hostname" it sounds like your system wasn't able to look up the Dropbox API hostname, which is 'api.dropboxapi.com'. You have the right hostname, and 'api.dropboxapi.com' is currently resolving properly, so it sounds like there's an issue with your DNS configuration. You'll need to debug that to see why your system isn't able to complete that lookup successfully. For instance, check what DNS server you're using and check that it's working properly.
