SyntaxError: invalid syntax




the dict comprehension doesn't work on python 2.6, then you have to install python 2.7 and use it.

Dict comprehensions were added to the language in version 2.7.

So you need to upgrade to Python 2.7. If you're stuck with 2.6, you could use

groupby_dict = dict((gb['groupby'], gb) for gb in annotated_groupbys)

this is  answer ?

Thanks .
