FYI, I also found this same issue with the latest git master as well as v6.10.0 tag, on Debian Buster (following the install steps)

The web server wouldn’t even start without upgrading Thrift in pip:

Couldn't import module for subcommand 'server'... ignoring.
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/ryan/src/third-party/codechecker/build/CodeChecker/cc_bin/", line 111, in main
  File "/home/ryan/src/third-party/codechecker/build/CodeChecker/cc_bin/", line 40, in add_subcommand
    cmd_file, cmd_path, cmd_descr)
  File "/home/ryan/src/third-party/codechecker/build/CodeChecker/cc_bin/../lib/python2.7/codechecker_server/cmd/", line 25, in <module>
    from shared.ttypes import DBStatus
  File "/home/ryan/src/third-party/codechecker/build/CodeChecker/lib/python2.7/codechecker_api/shared/", line 9, in <module>
    from thrift.Thrift import TType, TMessageType, TFrozenDict, TException, TApplicationException
ImportError: cannot import name TFrozenDict
usage: CodeChecker [-h] {} ...
CodeChecker: error: invalid choice: 'server' (choose from )

After upgrading it in pip directly (to 0.11.0), it starts but has a mostly-instant empty page. After upgrading the requirements.txt files, a lot more files load in the web interface but still dies at the same spot.

After updating the makefile mentioned above, and make clean followed by make package, it does work.

(Follow-up from Gitter) @reneparis There’s a file which described where to fetch external resources for the Web App here: I think this is the one that should also be modified.
