NzbToMedia -> Python3

Post by PeterPan669 » January 1st, 2020, 7:59 am

Happy new year 8)

Starting today, Python 2.7 is no longer officially supported. NzbToMedia postprocessing fails to run, if not using Python 3.
I tried to call the script via .sh to use Python3, but it seems that Sab forces Python 2.7 nonetheless.

What are our options? Is there a way to force Sab to run those scripts under Python 3+? I understand Sab is not (yet) supporting Python3. Or should we go at it differently?

Many thanks for your hard work Saph!

Struggling with the same problem.

As a new user i am not allowed to post links, but also see issue 1533 at github from Clinton Hall's nzbToMedia scripts.

thx

To add / clarify;
The workaround is proposed as to create a .sh file, and let SabNZBD run that as the script.
The contents would be:
#!/bin/bash
python3 /volume1/downloads/SCRIPTS/nzbToSickBeard.py "[email protected]"

Now, from the CLI, this works. From SabNZBD however, we still get "Python 2.7 is no longer supported.", which means SabNZBD tries to run the file under Python2.7 still. Clinton Hall suggested that he had seen in the past that SabNZBD forces .py files to run under the same version of Python as SabNZBD runs under, hence my question: Can we overrule this behavior?

Thanks!

EDIT: I think my error was that I was pressing 'retry' on previous failed items, which seem to call the old script as well. I am testing now with a new API call from medusa to see if it works now. Let's consider this fixed with the .sh file, and if not, i'll post back :) thanks!

If true, that is interesting (and annoying).


EDIT: I verified with SABnzbd 2.3.9 (thus running python2), and let SAB run a python3 post-processing script, and that worked perfectly: python3. So I cannot confirm your statement.

On Linux, the current python3 version of SABnzbd is quite usable; I've been using it for months now for my downloads.
So ... do you want to use that?

Hello Sander,

Thank you for commenting :)

I wasn't aware of a Python3 version of SabNZBD. I'm on Synology, so probably I didn't look for it in the right place.
At any rate, I managed to resolve the issue; It was my misunderstanding on how Sab works. Instead of testing with a 'fresh' API call from Medusa, I pressed "Retry" after altering the script. I didn't know that the old script would still be attached that way. With the new downloads, all is working great.

To recap; the solution for me was creating a new .sh file, that is called by Sab as a post processing. Inside the .sh file, I specified:
#!/bin/bash
python3 /volume1/downloads/SCRIPTS/nzbToSickBeard.py "[email protected]"

I hope this helps others!
Thanks again for all you guys hard work!

Ah, Synology ... no that is not a great platform to test-use python3-sabnzbd.

Clever decision.

BTW: On which OS is your SABnzbd running?

Peter, can you do this:

Of /volume1/downloads/SCRIPTS/nzbToSickBeard.py change the first line

Code: Select all

#!/usr/bin/env python
to

Code: Select all

#!/usr/bin/env python3
(So: just add a 3 directly after python, without a space)

and start using the nzbToSickBeard.py directly again. Please report back the result.

@sander, I did that a couple of days ago, and can verify it works fine. :)

Cool.

EDIT: question: just that one python file, or more nzbtomedia python files?

I did the same mod to a couple of other nzbToMedia post-processing Python files (called via SABnzbd). But not all nzbToMedia Python files.

Clinton Hall probably needs to update nzbToMedia to request 'python3' instead of 'python'.

The dev has changed to code so the script now only warns about the old python version, but continuos to work. I had to do a git pull to get this new version, but now everything works again the way it used to work.
