I want to add new column to attribute table of vector layer via Python console. I'm trying to do this following instructions from http://docs.qgis.org/testing/en/docs/pyqgis_developer_cookbook/vector.html. But while defying caps
caps = layer.dataProvider().capabilities()
I'm getting error:
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'dataProvider'
I've found some solutions referring to setting up QGIS Python environment correctly. (Getting dataProvider from vector layer outside QGIS). But this solution crash my QGIS.
Any idea what should I do to access (?) (or rather 'get?') dataProvider?
