PyPi package fails to install and run

See original GitHub issue

Creating a python 3.6.0 virtual environment and running pip install causallib succeeds, but then trying to import any modules fails. E.g. from causallib.estimation import IPW:


~/.pyenv/versions/3.6.0/envs/venv360/lib/python3.6/site-packages/pandas/core/ in <module>
     86 from pandas.core.arrays.datetimelike import DatetimeLikeArrayMixin as DatetimeLikeArray
     87 from pandas.core.arrays.sparse import SparseFrameAccessor
---> 88 from pandas.core.generic import NDFrame, _shared_docs
     89 from pandas.core.index import (
     90     Index,

~/.pyenv/versions/3.6.0/envs/venv360/lib/python3.6/site-packages/pandas/core/ in <module>
     69 from pandas.core.ops import _align_method_FRAME
---> 71 from import DataFrameFormatter, format_percentiles
     72 from import pprint_thing
     73 from pandas.tseries.frequencies import to_offset

~/.pyenv/versions/3.6.0/envs/venv360/lib/python3.6/site-packages/pandas/io/formats/ in <module>
     45 from pandas.core.indexes.datetimes import DatetimeIndex
---> 47 from import _expand_user, _stringify_path
     48 from import adjoin, justify, pprint_thing

~/.pyenv/versions/3.6.0/envs/venv360/lib/python3.6/site-packages/pandas/io/ in <module>
      7 from http.client import HTTPException  # noqa
      8 from io import BytesIO
----> 9 import lzma
     10 import mmap
     11 import os

~/.pyenv/versions/3.6.0/lib/python3.6/ in <module>
     25 import io
     26 import os
---> 27 from _lzma import *
     28 from _lzma import _encode_filter_properties, _decode_filter_properties
     29 import _compression

ModuleNotFoundError: No module named '_lzma'

It looks like there are versioning issues with pandas.

Depending on how Python is installed in your system, the module lzma will not be available (I first found this after installing Python with pyenv on MacOS). This is due to a lack of the appropriate dependencies when compiling Python. Since pandas uses that module, you end up with the No module found error message. On release 0.25.1 of pandas the issue will be fixed. If your Python is not properly installed (i.e. lzma not available) you will get a warning message when importing pandas, but pandas will be imported. However, calling any function that requires compression via lzma will still fail.

Thanks for contributing your bug-fix, @Salompas. @BoltzmannBrain, feel free to update if this fixes that for you. Unless you or anyone else objects, I think we can close this issue, as it is not directly causallib related.
