Hi I keep getting this error when I try to run version 1.4. 1.2 worked fine.. I'm using a fresh Debian jessie install:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/splunk-appinspect", line 9, in <module>
    load_entry_point('splunk-appinspect==1.4.0.86', 'console_scripts', 'splunk-appinspect')()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pkg_resources.py", line 356, in load_entry_point
    return get_distribution(dist).load_entry_point(group, name)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pkg_resources.py", line 2476, in load_entry_point
    return ep.load()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pkg_resources.py", line 2195, in load
    raise ImportError("%r has no %r attribute" % (entry, attr))
ImportError: <module 'splunk_appinspect' from '/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/splunk_appinspect/__init__.pyc'> has no 'main' attribute

Any ideas?

I had the same issue (ubuntu 16.04, no virtualenv).

I already had version 1.3 installed, so I uninstalled the splunk-appinstall pip module and then installed the new version freshly. It worked after that.

I'm able to run with no issues via a virtualenv on Debian Jessie - is that an option for you?

apt-get update
apt-get install python-pip
pip install virtualenv
virtualenv venv
source venv/bin/activate
pip install splunk-appinspect-1.4.0.86.tar.gz
splunk-appinspect --help

The error you're getting could be related to the previous version of appinspect (if /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/splunk_appinspect/init.pyc was compiled using the older version then "main" would not exist) but since you indicated a clean install that shouldn't be the issue.

I had followed a slightly different script ie., used mkvirtualenv (from virtualenvwrapper) to create a virtualenv, but the error remains the same.

Does the path in your error "/usr/local/bin/splunk-appinspect" match the virtualenv created via mkvirtualenv?

which splunk-appinspectshould correspond to the virtualenv path.

We have identified the issue on our end and will have a hotfix ASAP. Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience! If you want to apply the hotfix yourself you should be able to add import main on a single line to /Users/pgowda/.virtualenvs/appinspect14/lib/python2.7/site-packages/splunk_appinspect/__init__.py

The hotfix worked. FTR, the actual file I edited to add the import main statement was : ~/.virtualenvs/appinspect14/lib/python2.7/site-packages/splunk_appinspect-1.4.0.86-py2.7.egg/splunk_appinspect/__init__.py
