Can a Python script detect it is running in repl.it?
Is it possible for a Python script to check if it is running within repl.it?
I'm afraid that this is not possible. Repl.it is running a Linux VM which does not provide any info on if it's a normal Linux machine, or a repl.it server.
@Vandesm14 Thank you for your reply. Would it not be possible to set an environment variable in the VM, that would suggest that this is a repl.it server?
I asked this question in the context of a specific issue I am having: https://repl.it/talk/ask/Is-it-possible-to-use-PIL-in-replit-to-show-images/24944. Essentially, this is an example of a program that would need to differentiate its behaviour depending on whether or not it is running in repl.it
