Has anyone been able to use the manim Python package in the Replit environment? If not, do we think at some point we will be able to?
Hi @engineerbob , welcome to the forums!
What problem are you facing with the manim module?
Hi, I found a link that can apparently get Manim to work in replit. GitHub - lunaroyster/manim-repl: Run 3blue1brown's manim on repl.it! have you tried this?
@engineerbob If you need to install manim, enter
pip install manim into the Shell.
Linux - Manim Community v0.17.3 I don’t think it’s just that, there are also other dependencies such as ffmpeg
Wow! Thank you for the responses! I had an “import manim” in my code. Normally, if I have something like “import numpy” then the environment seems to pip in the module automatically. My code just generated the “manim not found” message. So I was thinking maybe since manim isn’t a PyPI package that I couldn’t use it. I can use it on my local box inside of PyCharm’s virtual environment. But I see a couple of suggestions above that I’ll try tonight after work. And yes, manim really want’s ffmpeg. On my local boxes (both home and work) I have to manually install the package and then update my system path. But I’ll give it shot on Replit. Will post my results. I’m excited that it might be possible to use manim in Replit. That would be very cool!
Again, thank you for the responses. What a great community!
