I keep the getting the following error. Have Google dozens of times looking for a fix, but can’t find it. Would greatly appreciate any help!

(base) Andrew-XXXXXXX-MacBook-Air:Desktop andrewXXXXXX$ python3 Traceback (most recent call last):

File “”, line 1, in <module> import requests File “/Users/andrewXXXXXXXXXX/Desktop/”, line 4, in <module> requests.get(url) AttributeError: module ‘requests’ has no attribute ‘get’

@apyle0710: Looks like you have a file named in your app folder. And that’s the file that Python imports when you do the import requests. So the problem is that your local file shadows (overrides) the requests library you’re trying to import. The easiest solution is to rename your local file to something else. Hope this helps :)
