Can't launch a program

trying to launch a simple script, but replit won’t start. There is some output on the console on the first try and then nothing. After taking a quick screenshot when the output was visible I saw that there is a conflict with packages “because python-template depends on both replit (^3.2.4) and dcyw-utilities (^, version solving failed”
But its a brand new replit, any help appreciated.
Also how do we contact support here?

Replit should really update their package, but in the meantime you can follow this:

Thanks for trying to help, I ran your command (got an error, see below).

poetry add git+


  Command '['git', 'config', '-l']' returned non-zero exit status 1.

The thing is my script was working all fine a week ago, not sure what changed with Replit’s packages but I’ve spent 2 days trying to figure and its a pain to deal with old packages. I’m moving to CodeAnywhere now

This happened last time too… Try this:


Hi @idris5, welcome to the forums!

Thank you, I’ve tried all the suggestions in your link but no luck.

Here is the output of this command:
poetry add -vv git+

Ah! I actually know how to solve that one. Try this:

No luck, same issue :cry:

The 2nd one didn’t do much though:
poetry add urllib3==1.26.15

That’s actually a good sign :slight_smile:
Try this now:

Thank you, it updated the dependencies but I still have the same error.
In the meantime I managed to get all my scripts running fine on Codeanywhere now so I think I’ll just use that instead. Too bad I paid for a year of Replit already.
Anyway thanks a bunch for at least trying to sort me out!

Which Error? The original one with replit, a TypeError, or something else?

The original one yeah: nothing seem to happen, no output in the console

Huh. Try adding the package you need in Shell (poetry add package-name), as that won’t clear after an error.
