In order to get started with Eikon Python API, we must install the eikon python package using the following
pip install eikon
If you are behind a firewall, this can present difficulties. Can Refinitiv make the eikon python package available to download in a way that it can be installed without the python interpreter needing to download additional content.
Note I have looked at the following link, and these download files do not solve the problem, as installing them prompts the python interpreter to download other files
Thanks in advance
Using pip will attempt to resolve all dependencies. The Eikon package has many dependencies and as you discovered will try to install them. I can't think of another way other than to download those dependencies that are failing as you did with the Eikon package and install them individually. The Eikon package doesn't include all the separate dependencies as downloadable modules.
Your comments prompted me to try installing some of the dependencies first and then try pip installing eikon again, and it has worked for some reason.
Before, I was getting ConnectionResetError(10054,'An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host'....) when trying to install eikon before. This would happen as it was working through the dependencies
I just tried installing zope first (this was where it was usually failing), then installing eikon and it has worked
Posting my experience here in case it is relevant to other users
There are few commands to use pip with firewall and proxies. You can specify server information on the environment variable like:
pip install eikon
or if proxy requires login information -
pip --proxy "[user:passwd@]pServer:pPort" install eikon
If your corporate firewall is also re-signing the connection, then add these options to pip command line:
Hi, the python API keeps raising this error in some sort of random fashion. It doesn't seem related with my code, and after doing the same request after few seconds I get the data I need. Why is this error raised?
