Placeholder for the ldap name

Project description

ldap on PyPI

This dummy project is not installable. You probably want python-ldap instead.


The widely used python-ldap project provides an importable module named ldap.

This goes against the convention that PyPI distribution names should match the module names. But, python-ldap pre-dates wide use of that convention, and the issue is hard to fix now.

Please install python-ldap to get the LDAP bindings.

ldap 1.0

The ldap name on PyPI was used for an unrelated collection of LDAP-related utilities, which is not as popular, and confused users who install ldap to get the ldap module.

The project is no longer developed. It is archived as 1.0.x releases on PyPI, and on GitHub.

Why we don't fix this transparently

This could have been a placeholder package that depends on python-ldap, saving you the trouble of reading this message.

However, pip has trouble with differently-named packages that provide the same module.

Please: Don't install packages blindly

When you see the exception:

ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'foo'

… please research the actual requirements instead of going directly for pip install foo. The project (distribution) name may differ from the module(s) it provides.
