Addon Module Issue

Hi, everyone!

I’m trying to make an Anki Addon that uses trackpad swipes on Anki Desktop on MacOS to advance a card and rate it. The code works fine in Python outside of Anki. When I add it to an Anki Addon, I just get the error:

Quartz path: /Users/username/Library/Application Support/Anki2/addons21/swipe_gestures/pyobjc_framework_Quartz

Failed to import Quartz: cannot import name ‘_objc’ from partially initialized module ‘objc’ (most likely due to a circular import) (/Users/username/Library/Application Support/Anki2/addons21/swipe_gestures/pyobjc_framework_Quartz/objc/

Here’s the code.

import os
import sys

# Add local library paths
addon_path = "/Users/username/Library/Application Support/Anki2/addons21/swipe_gestures"
pynput_path = os.path.join(addon_path, 'pynput')

# Ensure the paths are inserted at the beginning to avoid conflicts
sys.path.insert(0, pynput_path)

# Debugging: Print paths for verification
print(f"Addon path: {addon_path}")
print(f"pynput path: {pynput_path}")

# Attempt to import pynput
    import pynput
    print("pynput imported successfully")
except ImportError as e:
    print(f"Failed to import pynput: {e}")

from pynput import mouse

# Function to handle scroll events
def handle_scroll(x, y, dx, dy):
    print("Scroll event detected:")
    if dx != 0:
        if dx > 0:
            print("Scroll left")
            print("Scroll right")

    if dy != 0:
        if dy > 0:
            print("Scroll up")
            print("Scroll down")

# Create a listener to capture scroll events
def create_event_listener():
    print("Creating event listener...")
    with mouse.Listener(
            on_scroll=handle_scroll) as listener:
