Problem with generic Suds client¶
Suds client is used by
vatnumber module to query VIES system for VAT ID numbers. The problem was it was
making an error (exception that NoneType does not have str method). This error was shown only with
django (with possibly django-debug-toolbar enabled). As we can read here
this is a bug in
Suds that is caused by some logging problem. In console this bug fails silently, but
when called from django make an Exception.
As stackoverflow answers, the solution is to use fixed version of
Suds that unfortunately is not in PyPi.
Working suds version can be clone from:
Version: 0.4.1-htj is reported to be working.
