Installing winIDEA SDK for Python

In this topic:


Ubuntu 18.04


Python and winIDEA SDK are part of snap. However, if you want to install the SDK into your Python virtual environment, it is available on PyPi:



Install winIDEA SDK.

pip3 install isystem.connect



Test installation.

>>> import isystem.connect as ic
>>> ic.getModuleVersion()




If you get an error:

ImportError: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


it means that you have to install xerces:

sudo apt-get install libxerces-c3.1


Ubuntu 18.04

Since xerces 3.1 is no longer available (xerces 3.2 is distributed now), you have to download and install it manually:


mkdir xerces31; cd xerces31
tar xvf xerces-c-3.1.4.tar.gz
cd xerces-c-3.1.4
sudo make install
cd ~/bin/embeddedPy/lib64/python3.6/site-packages/isystem  # dir with your venv
ln -s /usr/local/lib/
