Most programmers use enum to define the unique and constant values. All the values are already known before the runtime. There are times when you can get errors like attributeerror: module ‘enum’ has no attribute ‘intflag’ . In this entire tutorial, you will know how to solve this problem easily.
What is Enum?
Enum stands for enumeration. In python, Enum is a class that allows you to create a set of unique and constant values. Enum is mostly used when you already know all the values at compile time. You can also change the value of enum in the future easily.
The root cause of Attributeerror: module ‘enum’ has no attribute ‘intflag’
In most of the cases when you get the attributeerror: module ‘enum’ has no attribute ‘intflag’ error is when the enum34 module is installed in your system that is conflicting with the default enum class.
The rare case when you can get the error is when you have enum.py file in your project directory as it conflicts with the original enum module.
When you try to create Enum object and run it then you will get the attributerror.
AttributeError: module 'enum' has no attribute 'IntFlag'
Solution of module ‘enum’ has no attribute ‘intflag’
The solution of the module ‘enum’ has no attribute ‘intflag’ is very simple. You have to uninstall the enum module from your system. To uninstall open your terminal or command prompt and type the below command.
pip uninstall -y enum34
If the error still comes then there must be enum file in your project directory. Delete it, the problem will be solved. You can also check from where the python interpreter is pulling the enum module.
Run the below lines of code to check it.
import enum print(enum.__file__)
It will let you know from where the enum module is loading. If it is in your project directory then delete it.
If none of the above solutions work then unset the python path using the below command.
Enum is the best to use when you already know the values you want to use during the compile time. If you get the above module ‘enum’ has no attribute ‘intflag’ then the above solution will work for you.
