Python: Why can't I use pandoc in replit like I can when I use jupyter notebook?

I am moving over some projects from my jupyter notebook to replit and I’m testing out this scraper I built with Chat-GPT, but the code runs into an error. Any thoughts?

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 291, in <module>
  File "", line 236, in breezy_jobs_to_airtable
    p = subprocess.Popen(['pandoc', '--from=html', '--to=markdown'],

    self._execute_child(args, executable, preexec_fn, close_fds,

    raise child_exception_type(errno_num, err_msg, err_filename)
FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'pandoc'

Here’s a link to my repli:

Hey, @MarkYi1! Welcome to the community!

It seems that some of the files that allow python to run did not load correctly or was not even installed.

You can try re-transfering the projects again with a better internet connection or manually install the missing files.


@MarkYi1 Try adding pandoc using nixpkgs.
