Plugin: ImportError: No module named 'yaml'



I am using the plugin SublimeLinter-contrib-phpstan, it was working fine till something like 1 month ago, but it stopped working recently. I checked the console and I found this log:

reloading python 3.3 plugin SublimeLinter-contrib-phpstan.linter
Traceback (most recent call last):

ImportError: No module named 'yaml'

Although I installed yaml for both Python and Python 3, I read on this forum that Sublime Text is shipped with its own version of Python 3.3 and Python 3.8. So, I suppose it needs also to have that yaml extension.




The plugin imports yaml but doesn’t seem to specify it as a dependency. Thus if not requested by any other package, the library is not installed or even removed by Package Control.

The package should contain a dependencies.json with following content.

    "*": {
        "*": [


I confirm that it works, thanks a lot! :grinning:
