this is my error

Yes but we need to see your repl to try and find the issue (like in configuration files)


My hunch is that the Deployment machines don’t support VNC (which Turtle is trying to open and use), and so Turtle isn’t working because of it.

Could be something else though.

Do I need to deploy if I am just sharing my link to someone ?
its not an app. It is for someone to learn turtle and for loop together.

You do not. If you’re just sharing something with someone you can send them the Repl spotlight URL ( and they can fork it and happy days.

Thank you.
so the deployment deadline is only for apps ?

I use python ( python data science , pygame etc templates and have some basic repls to explain to someone basic python .
Do I need to change anything for those repls?
I did not find any detailed tutorial for deployment.

Can you send me the link , please?

You do not need to deploy those kinds of Repls, merely share their standard cover page links.
