Pytesseract Auto Shell Install Package Issue
Intenzi (1)

I am using pytesseract on replit.
One of the steps to make pytesseract work is going to shell and doing this install-pkg tesseract-ocr

The issue is, if I reconnect to the repl then I have to reinstall the tesseract-ocr pkg through the shell for pytesseract to function.

Is there any way to automate this process of installing the tesseract-ocr package through shell everytime replit reconnects to my repl?

I have already tried directly installing the tesseract-ocr package through the packages list but that gives an error.

@Intenzi You can do that two!

import os

if os.path.exists("<YourFile>"):
  print("Already installed!")
  os.system("install-pkg tesseract-ocr")
