Asking for .replit file when there already is one

Every time I create a new repl from a GitHub repo I get the error “Run isn’t configured. Try adding a .replit and configuring it…" when I clearly have a .replit file. What’s even more strange is that if I delete the .replit file then recreate it with the exact same text inside of it, the repl works… wth. There’s clearly a bug here, please help.

For reference, here’s the GitHub repo I’m using, it has a button “Run on Replit” that I’m using: GitHub - Lumiwealth-Strategies/crypto_custom_etf

update: it seems that refreshing the page makes it work. wtf? is it just me?

Refreshing would help. That may be because Replit hadn’t finished reading the .replit file.
If this happens again, try adding the line run = "python" above the entrypoint line.
Hope this helps!


That worked! THANK YOU!

Please mark @NateDhaliwal’s post as the solution.

Seems like that was done for me already. Thanks for the reminder
