SOLVED ImportError: No module named AppKit

  • Hi! I'm trying to use Visual Studio Code to make some scripts, but when I try to pair it I get the following message:

    user@user-MacBook-Pro ~ % roboFont -h
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/local/bin/roboFont", line 3, in <module>
        from AppKit import NSWorkspace, NSWorkspaceLaunchWithoutActivation, NSRunningApplication, NSURL, NSDistributedNotificationCenter
    ImportError: No module named AppKit

    Does anyone know what's happening?

    ah, I assume you have a custom python2 installed. Where AppKit is not installed.

    I would recommend (not only for RoboFont but as lots of macOS tools uses python) not to overwrite your system python.

  • @frederik Thank you!!! I had a 2.7 version which I installed for something, I just deleted it and now it works 😄
