python – Import error: No module name urllib2

python – Import error: No module name urllib2

As stated in the urllib2 documentation:

The urllib2 module has been split across several modules in Python 3 named urllib.request and urllib.error. The 2to3 tool will automatically adapt imports when converting your sources to Python 3.

So you should instead be saying

from urllib.request import urlopen
html = urlopen(http://www.google.com/).read()
print(html)

Your current, now-edited code sample is incorrect because you are saying urllib.urlopen(http://www.google.com/) instead of just urlopen(http://www.google.com/).

For a script working with Python 2 (tested versions 2.7.3 and 2.6.8) and Python 3 (3.2.3 and 3.3.2+) try:

#! /usr/bin/env python

try:
    # For Python 3.0 and later
    from urllib.request import urlopen
except ImportError:
    # Fall back to Python 2s urllib2
    from urllib2 import urlopen

html = urlopen(http://www.google.com/)
print(html.read())

python – Import error: No module name urllib2

The above didnt work for me in 3.3. Try this instead (YMMV, etc)

import urllib.request
url = http://www.google.com/
request = urllib.request.Request(url)
response = urllib.request.urlopen(request)
print (response.read().decode(utf-8))
