Attributeerror module TensorFlow has no attribute gfile error occurs because the internal package structure for gfile module is changed in TensorFlow 2.0. The best way to fix this arttributeerror is correct the import statement by using a new package structure. In this article, we will explore how can we fix this error exactly with code. Let’s start !!
Attributeerror module tensorflow has no attribute gfile ( Solution) –
There are always two broader ways to fix any attributeerror. The first one is either fix the code by using the correct syntax as per the installed libraries. The second one is to change the version of the underline libraries. The second one looks too simpler but it is not recommended. The reason is that your other codebase only supports TensorFlow 2.0 library. Which does not provide the back word compatibility to any lower version of TensorFlow syntax. Then It will create multiple errors. So Be
Solution 1: Changing import Statement –
Actually, gfile module is now migrated to io.gfile module. Since the internal structure is different now and if we use the incorrect import statement, The Interpreter will through the same error. Below is the correct way to Import gfile module.
Solution 2: Downgrading Tensorflow to 1.13.1 or lower ( Not Optimal ) –
If we refer to the release notes for TensorFlow release we will find that this internal package structure for gfile is different in higher version to 1.13.1. Hence if you are sure that your code does not throw any incompatibility error if we downgrade Tensorflow 2.0 library version. I will again warn this is too risky.
pip install tensorflow==1.13.1
