The "Run Button"

Question:
this is my time trying replit, and whenever i try to hit the run button it says" run is not configured". What should i do.

I’m guessing you made a “Blank Repl”. Replit has many different programming languages for you to make repls with that are already set up for you with the required packages and configurations on creation.

If you didn’t, however, make a blank repl, send some screenshots.

Yep, you created a Blank Repl. Just delete it and create a new one with the template as Python (in your case. you can also do a ton of other languages as well)

The template will have all the correct configurations that Python will need, and it should work.

It says that they forked this repl https://replit.com/@appbrewery/day-1-printing-start, which does have a .replit config file.

Did you delete any of the files that came with your repl when you forked it @rohaankhurana7?

When it says try adding a .replit, it means you need to create a new file, not just type it into your main.py

Over on the left click the new file button

Name the file .replit
then when it appears, paste this into it.

Then everything should work fine.

paste all of this where

Into the new file named .replit that you make. Make sure that you include the . as well.

okay, So i should paste it where we write our code, and then run what you’ve told me to paste.

Not quite, what I’ve told you to paste is what makes the run button run what you already have in main.py

You’re still running your original code in main.py
The stuff you paste into the .replit file is just what configures the run button to work, (to run your main.py file.)

print("hello world") #remove the .replit
print("hello world!")

Again, click the button that says new file, name the new file .replit

Paste all of the code provided in the previous message into that new file. And then just click run and it should work.

I am so sorry to bother you again and again,
but it is showing an attribute error now

No need to apologize you’re not bothering anyone. :grin:

The reason its giving that attribute error is because you still have .replit in your main.py file.

The file you are showing in the screenshot (day1print.replit) is not necessary and can be deleted.

In your main.py file, you have

print("hello world") .replit
print("hello world!")
print("hello world")

Just remove the .replit part there and then everything should be fine.

i removed the .replit file and ran the command(print) on the main.py file, but again it is asking me to reconfigur the RUN button

Tf is wrong with this website

No, you weren’t supposed to delete the .replit file, you were supposed to delete the .replit you have written in the main.py file .

In your screenshot it shows.
main.py
1 print("hello world") .replit

just remove the .replit here in this line.

And you will need to create the .replit file again.

My aplogies if I was being unclear or confusing.

Still the same problem??

That’s okay you’re almost there now.

You just need to paste the code from before into that .replit file now.

You’ve created it, but there’s nothing in it which is why it still isn’t working.

in the .replit file

Paste all of this.
