ImportError: cannot import name 'Token'

See original GitHub issue

Getting following error: Traceback (most recent call last): File "", line 2, in <module> from PyInquirer import prompt, print_json File "C:\Users\CBAY\OneDrive - Netcompany\Python Projects\TimeRegistration\venv\lib\site-packages\PyInquirer\", line 6, in <module> from prompt_toolkit.token import Token ImportError: cannot import name 'Token'

Running on Windows 10 Enterprise both in Powershell and Cmder. Same error.

I got the same issue. A walkaround is to downgrade the prompt_toolkit and it worked for me. pip install ‘prompt_toolkit==1.0.14’

Maybe better change the version of prompt_toolkit in requirements.txt: prompt_toolkit==1.0.14

Otherwise will always use latest version of prompt_toolkit FYI: There is breaking update in prompt_toolkit 2.0

pip install ‘prompt_toolkit==1.0.14’

Unfortunately this now makes ipython 7.12.0 not work.

ERROR: ipython 7.12.0 has requirement prompt-toolkit!=3.0.0,!=3.0.1,<3.1.0,>=2.0.0, but you'll have prompt-toolkit 1.0.14 which is incompatible.

when trying to use ipython it gives the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/xxx/anaconda3/envs/ox/bin/ipython", line 7, in <module>
    from IPython import start_ipython
  File "/home/xxx/anaconda3/envs/ox/lib/python3.8/site-packages/IPython/", line 56, in <module>
    from .terminal.embed import embed
  File "/home/xxx/anaconda3/envs/ox/lib/python3.8/site-packages/IPython/terminal/", line 16, in <module>
    from IPython.terminal.interactiveshell import TerminalInteractiveShell
  File "/home/xxx/anaconda3/envs/ox/lib/python3.8/site-packages/IPython/terminal/", line 21, in <module>
    from prompt_toolkit.formatted_text import PygmentsTokens
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'prompt_toolkit.formatted_text'   

after pip install prompt_toolkit ipython now works again but pyinquirer fails
