Can't run python script on my plugin


(Pkunico) #1

I have developed a plugin to manage user info on elasticsearch,and need to call a python script,but when require('python-shell'), kibana just can't start up and report the error: Module not found: Error: Cannot resolve module 'child_process' 。I just wrote this in a standalone js file,run from node ,it works very well.
It's so wired, kibana or babel have add some limit?

Are you trying to run this in the browser/from the public directory? The python-shell module uses child_process which will be available on the server but not in the browser.
