tqdm: 'module' object is not callable

I import tqdm as this:

import tqdm


I am using tqdm to show progress in my python3 code, but I have the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "process.py", line 15, in <module>
for dir in tqdm(os.listdir(path), desc = 'dirs'):
TypeError: 'module' object is not callable


Here is the code:

path = '../dialogs'
dirs = os.listdir(path)

for dir in tqdm(dirs, desc = 'dirs'):
print(dir)

Answer

The error is telling you are trying to call the module. You can't do this.

To call you just have to do

tqdm.tqdm(dirs, desc = 'dirs') 

to solve your problem. Or simply change your import to

from tqdm import tqdm

But, the important thing here is to review the documentation for what you are using and ensure you are using it properly.
