Hey @AnselChan1 and welcome to the forums!

This is intended behavior. This is a template that you are supposed to fork and configure, it doesn’t work right away.

For more information on configuring Repls, you can refer to the docs.

P.S. that’s actually a cow, not a horse


Hi @AnselChan1 , welcome to the forums!
It appears that you want to run a Python file. In that case use the official Python template when choosing the language of the repl. You may want to create a Python repl and move this code into it.
Hope this helps!


I have used the official template.

I’ll try moving into a new Python File.

When using the official Python Template, you are forking it.

No, but you are using the Blank repl template.


Look you need to use the Python template for Python or else configure the blank template to run Python. Regardless “configure me” is not an error. It is the intended behavior of the blank repl template.


When it hasn’t been configured


cowsay "What option are you picking when you're creating the repl?"

Hey @AnselChan1!

The Repl you showed us actually isn’t your Repl; rather it is a template that hasn’t been configured. This template is made by Replit (assumption from the name @ReplitStoryTime) so you have to fork the template and configure it in order to use it.

At the top of the hidden .replit file, you should add these lines of code:

run = "python"
modules = ["python-3.10:v18-20230807-322e88b"]

Well, entrypoint now replaces run, so no need for the run line, replace it with:
entrypoint = "".

entrypoint is a dominant gene while run is a recessive genotype (IK I’m bringing biology into this). You need one, but entrypoint covers up run.
