To use TensorFlow in Replit, run pip install tensorflow-cpu in the shell, then create a .replit file and in it, put:

Now you can use import tensorflow as tf

The Replit VM has no GPU, so you have to install tensrflow-cpu, which has CPU-only support.
When you install tensorflow-cpu, if you use import tensorflow, python imports tensorflow-cpu. Replit doesn't know that, so when you import tensorflow it will automatically install normal tensorflow. By adding tensorflow to ignoredPackages, Replit won't install normal tensorflow.

Thank you!
How do you install tensorflow-1.15
ERROR: Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement tensorflow==1.15

cookeydev

@PizzaRules668 I think you would install tensorflow-cpu==1.15

@cookeydev
I tried that
I think I figured It out I need python 3.7 not 3.8

hg0428

thanks, I will try that

I am having the same exact issue, I believe this is not happening with other libraries.

hg0428

It is not happening with any other libraries, but no libraries are installed if any one of them can not be installed. @DiegoAlarcon

Do you have the explorer role? If you do you should remove it because this glitch only happens if you have explorer role (i think)

hg0428

@PDanielY
It did not work

HackermonDev

@hg0428 hmm. I'll check it out

If any of you are still having issues like I am go ahead and upvote my bug report so it gets seen , front page, scroll down a bit, called Tensorflow
