How to get os.environ['SECRET'] working for other users?

Profile icon

I have been trying to get a program to work in Replit apps with secrets contained in it, like in this example.
But as you can see, it raises KeyError as if the secret's key is wrong. This works completely fine for me when I'm logged in.
I read the documentation for this, but it doesn't make sense that an unedited version of the code would restrict the use of secrets.
Am I missing something obvious?

The secrets don't exist for other users. It only exists for your account. To other accounts, they aren't there.

Thanks! I will need to find a workaround for this...
