Describe any related issues / limitations that would be solved by having this feature


Thanks for this feature request, I’ve shared it with our engineers! I agree this would be useful.


how do you believe this will solve Replit dose not allocate enough resources when installing python packages!? Have you found a pre-built wheel for your package online so you can install from it without compilation?

I believe that if they add this feature, it will fix it as since the internal packager is installing the package, it won’t have any ram limits and might be more optimized than pip or poetry alone.

The packager tab just calls upm, which in python just wraps poetry
