Any deployment that includes Chroma package fails (timeout after Pushing Repl )

Problem description:
Repls with Chroma run fine. But fail deployment at bundling stage.
Any python repl with the Chroma package. I’ve tried them all. Not of them complete deployment. All timeout. Regardless of VM size. I’ve bought a load of credits but I’m chewing through them just trying to get Chroma working.

Any help greatly appreciated :pray:

Expected behavior:
Deployment completes

Actual behavior:
Deployment timeout after Pushing Repl

This is a similar issue to the issue reported here i’m also facing that issue Can´t deploy a Replit because, according to the log file, the Project does not exist - #3 by JadChamoun

Hey there – I believe the underlying issue here is that Python Repls that install too many large packages (numpy, chromadb, openai, etc) can time out during the deployment step. We’re tracking the issue and hope to have a fix soon. Sorry for the inconvenience!
