h5py not running outside of anaconda/ IDE


Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone had an issue running their python script outside of IDE if h5py is imported in the script? What is the appropriate workaround?



Hi Florence, it’s most likely that when you run your code outside your IDE, you’re using a different environment or a different Python installation from the one you use inside the IDE

It’s hard to provide specific guidance, but in general: work out which Python environment your IDE runs, and then figure out how to use that in the terminal (or wherever you’re trying to run it).
