How to add Python librarys to Splunk with PyUnicode UCS4


I created an custom command with iocextract Python libray inside a new Splunk app. https://github.com/InQuest/python-iocextract
sudo pip -t . iocextract
With this command I installed the libary iocextract and all the required libraries regex + ipadress successfully.
My script imports iocextractlibrary.iocextact` imports the regex library but this library has an encoding problem.

The script:

#!/usr/bin/env python

import sys
import os
import iocextract

from splunklib.searchcommands import \
    dispatch, StreamingCommand, Configuration, Option, validators

class extractiocCommand(StreamingCommand):
    """ %(synopsis)

And when I search with index="_internal" |head 10 |table source |eval text="text" | extractioc fieldname=text kind=urls

I get this error message:

Error in 'script': Getinfo probe failed for external search command 'extractioc'.
from .regex import *
import _regex
import _regex_core
import iocextract
import regex as re

Traceback (most recent call last):
The search job has failed due to an error. You may be able view the job in the Job Inspector. 

I tested my python encoding inside the folder /opt/splunk/etc/apps/IocExtractor3/bin# python

import sys
if sys.maxunicode > 65535:
 print 'UCS4 build'
 print 'UCS2 build'

and get UCS4 build
