What Does This Output Represent?

Tags: , ,

I’m trying to get my RPi to send temp data to Xively and I’m having a horrible time getting my code to work. This is the latest reponse I get when I run the python script…

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "xively1.py", line 11, in <module>
import xively               # for Xively 
File "/home/pi/xively/xively.py", line 11, in <module>
FEED_ID = os.environ["736915202"]
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/UserDict.py", line 23, in __getitem__
raise KeyError(key)
KeyError: '736915202'

Can someone explain to me what this means and what I need to do to correct? Thanks.

The xively module is expecting the environment variable “736915202” to be set. It’s not, so it’s throwing an exception.

That seems like a very strange environment variable to have set, though. Is /home/pi/xively/xively.py a third-party module, or did you write it? If you wrote that file, but you expected calling import xively to import a third-party module, you should rename /home/pi/xively/xively.py to something else, and that will probably fix your problem.
