How can I use python 3.6?
tal3 (0)

I want to host a discord bot but it only runs with the old version of discord.py, discord.py async. I can’t, however, use that version with discord 3.8, it requires 3.6 or below. Therefore, my question is: How can I use python version 3.5/3.6 on repl.it? Or, if there isn’t a possible way to do that, what other ways can I host a discord bot using 3.5/3.6?

Hi,
There isn't possible way to get python 3.6 on repl.it, you can have 2.7, but not 3.6 or 3.5. If you want to make a discord bot look at some videos. There a ton of videos on that with the latest versions of python

Hope it helped (:

At least python 3.8.2 is higher than python 3.6.

So the bot doesn't even work or is it just warning you saying that the versions are incompatible?

I haevn’t even tried it because I know for a fact that it only works with discord async, which itself only works with python 3.6 or [email protected]

python 3.8 did not remove async smh @tal3

if they did, it would be a breaking changed and they would upgrade to 4.0 @tal3

I don't know, repl.it only has Python 2 and Python 3.8.2.
