Is it possible to use slash commands on replit when coding a python Discord bot?
cachdies

I am coding a Discord Bot in Python. I have my bot up and running but I would like to upgrade it so that I can use slash (/) commands. However, even the most simple code fails because whenever I try from discord_slash import SlashCommand I get the following error:

Since there is no terminal for me to use pip install I don't know how to solve this as all articles I've found online indicate that this should work. Likewise, I've found that when it doesn't the fix seems to be to re-install discord using pip. Does anyone know if this can be fixed? or is this a limitation of replit?
Thanks!

Select the packages section in the toolbar.
