Why can't I run tkinter?
JordanDixon1

I have been trying to make a python with tkinter repl but it doesn't seem to work.

I'm having a similar issue. With mine, I hit run, it tries to run, and stops after like 2 seconds. Nothing happens on the screen. The only thing I've gotten is a window that doesn't listen to the window.geometry().

tkinter works on repl.it, but quite often do the guis fail and continue to load. I would check back tomorrow or try to only do backend work on here where you do not need to worry about your display.

@Zeune okay thanks.

So I’ve looked at some ask questions similar to yours, so maybe you have to make a repl and set the languge to tkinter instead of python.
Hopefully that works, otherwise I don’t think tkinter works on repl.it
But you can try to do what I recommended.
Hope this helps!

@Bookie0 I've been doing this. The terminal screen thingy just keeps on loading even after I hit run. soooooooooo yeah.

Hum I guess tkinter doesn’t work well on repl.it . Maybe add a feedback post. @JordanDixon1
