Unable to create/rename .env file for discord bots (all languages and templates)
LabboLab (0)

To set up a discord bot you need to make/rename an env to a unnamed .env, but repl now doesnt allow this, therefore its impossible to make a discord bot (as far as i can think of)
Any workarounds?

Hi, with the new secrets system you have to create a secret, name it whatever you want ie BOT_TOKEN, then make the value of that secret the bot token, just the bot token not anything else, then client.run(os.environ['BOT_TOKEN']) the BOT_TOKEN is whatever you named ur secret
