Challenge: Data Analysis with Python Projects - Demographic Data Analyzer

Link to the challenge:

Unfortunately there’s some issue with the way replit’s handles installing dependencies when importing code from github.

This can be bypassed with a more manual way of preparing replit:

  • Start new replit, with Python template.
  • Clone the boilerplate repository manually.
  • Move cloned files to the root directory.

Commands to do the last two points, from the Shell are following:

git clone https://github.com/freeCodeCamp/boilerplate-demographic-data-analyzer.git
mv boilerplate-demographic-data-analyzer/*.* boilerplate-demographic-data-analyzer/.* .

This approach should work for other python boilerplates that might get stuck on the loading environment.
