@jgrumbre Yup, no problem. You'll find that the Repl.it forums are relatively active, so you'll usually end up getting your answer within a day :)

@SixBeeps I get an error when I try to install beautifulsoup4
Help please :(

@4pple3ater Hmm, have you tried installing it directly from pip? That error is surprisingly uninformative.

@SixBeeps I had modified the .toml file, but even after restoring it I kept getting the same error. For some reason I was getting that error only in that specific repl. I created a new repl and i was able to install bs4 there without any hassle.

I created a new repl with the exact same code that was present in the original repl and everything seems to be working fine there. :)

update: repl automatically fixed the original repl as well couple hours ago
