Is it not possible to install scrapy on repl?
I tried installing scrapy with import scrapy, but it says something about a recursion error...pls help
I found a hacky workaround that works ok for me in case it's useful for anyone. Instead of installing the dependencies via Poetry I'm using
I added a
requirements.txt file to the project and put
Scrapy == 2.5.0 there as the only line. Then in my
main.py file I have:
import os os.system('pip install -r requirements.txt')
And in my
.replit file I added
run = "python -m main" so when I hit the run button it installs
scrapy successfully. After that you can change your
.replit file back to whatever you want and using scrapy should just work for the rest of the session.
I've been doing that for a while now and it's a bit annoying for sure but it works and better than nothing.
I hope that helps!
