Cant create .env and using secret key isnt working
Hello. I'm a newbie to replit and I am trying to code a discord bot. However, I am stuck on creating an .env since they have just recently changed how you're supposed to use it. How am I supposed to create an .env to put my token in?
The environmental variable system has changed recently. There should be a lock icon on the left hand side bar, with multiple other options, including the file tree, and package manager. Then, there should be a simple input field asking you for the key and value of the secret you are adding. Then you should be able to access it as you have in your code (
os.getenv('TOKEN'), provided that they key for the secret is TOKEN).
On the left side of your screen click on the secrets tab (next to package manager, database, etc) and then create a new secret. Give it a name and value, and then you can either use the generated code to bring it into your project, or access it these same way you would a .env file with
