Bring project from Github to Replit and access it via localhost


How can i upload my Django project from github and then use it here as localhost?

1)I created a new project, then i’ve chosen Python as the language.
2)I made a clone from GitHub of the project
3)I entered the directory of my project and then did “pip install -r requirements.txt” to install the requirements of my project
4)I changed my database on settings to sqlite3 and then did “python migrate” to create my tables
5)I used “python runserver” and the server started to run but when i open any browser on the localhost the project does not run.
Am i missing something?

Welcome to the community, @tiagoadel!
Replit does not run on localhost, but on a domain, or a domain if you are using a deployment. To access this domain, just press the “Open In New Tab” button in the webview tab.

I tried it. It says not found. Any configurations that I have to do on Replit to put it running correctly ?

Hey, @tiagoadel !

Can you please provide a link to the repl? This way it is easier for staff and members of the community to help you!

Hello there. Here’s the link:

Thanks in advance

Hi @tiagoadel !
Your repl appears to be private or deleted.
If it is private, could you make it public?

Done. Forgot to do that when i shared the link.

Hi @tiagoadel !
Try changing your .replit file from

run = "python3 runserver"


run = ""

Then, to run your repl, just click ‘Run’.

  1. Replit doesn’t need that runserver command to run the program, the Run button will do. ↩︎

Hi @tiagoadel !
Have you tried my suggestion and see if it works?

Hello @NateDhaliwal i managed to put it working just now. Edited my .replit file to:
run = “python Showoff/ runserver” because the .replit file was not in the location off the “Showoff” project.

No but it needs that python3 command.
