Please allow TkinterMapView library on Python

Describe your feature request

Please allow access to the ‘tkintermapview’ python library. It’s a great resource that allows developers to have access to world maps (Google Maps, OpenMap etc) within a tkinter window.

Please read on to learn more about this library → GitHub - TomSchimansky/TkinterMapView: A python Tkinter widget to display tile based maps like OpenStreetMap or Google Satellite Images.

What problem(s) would this feature solve?

It would make the act of getting a map onto Replit a lot easier (extremely easy in fact). People who need a simple to use tkintermap in Replit and cannot use a local IDE have been put off which is a shame because Replit is definitely the best online IDE out there.

Programs that utilise maps in tkinter can be used on Replit if this library is allowed. What you can do with the maps all up to you.

Explain what you were trying to do when you came across the problem leading to this feature request

I tried to open a map within tkinter and it did not work on Replit. Replit didn’t recognise the library
