Python import error (No module named 'honeybee_plus')

Hi all,
After installing the honeybee_plus Python package (pip install lbt-honeybee==0.1.16 ) as suggested on its Github page, when importing the library, I see this error:

ModuleNotFoundError Traceback (most recent call last)
/var/folders/3s/4btthscs65jcq1hwcq_5k224g4jgb_/T/ipykernel_47483/ in
----> 1 from import Room

ModuleNotFoundError: No module named ‘honeybee_plus’

Does anyone know how to solve this?

There are a lot of reasons why what you’re trying won’t work:

  1. System Python installations (running pip from command line) are completely separate from the Python used by Ladybug Tools.
  2. The lbt-honeybee is the library used by the new LBT 1.5 plugin and not Honeybee[+].
  3. If you want to use the deprecated Honeybee[+] instead of the new LBT 1.5, then you need to use the old HB[+] installer from Food4Rhino.
