Python Budget App

Hello, when cloning the replit it displays “A Nix channel was not detected in your imported .replit file but is required for all Nix Repls. The latest stable Nix channel “stable-22_05” was automatically added to your .replit file.” and then the tests don’t run automatically. I know there was a small bug in one of the other py3 projects when building that required adding a dependency but I’m not sure here.

I got the same message but with the time calculator project:

“A Nix channel was not detected in your imported .replit file but is required for all Nix Repls. The latest stable Nix channel “stable-22_05” was automatically added to your .replit file.”

Did you find a solution? I have the same problem

Yes, This happens for all imports as the repositories on Github don’t require a .replit file. so it is common for all projects
and by clicking the ‘run’ button, it should probably run the code, provided there are no syntax errors.

I could never get it to work but I realized I didn’t need to. I program in Rust and have done more advanced things with it on my own and Py is just teaching me stuff that in Rust is otherwise considered bad practices (thankfully the compiler will step in and not run the program so I don’t sit there and wonder what the heck is going on for an hour…). It’s cool if you like it I suppose and these tutorials are informative but I’ve moved on and would rather just do Rustlings again if anything (actually right now I’m playing with the turtle graphics crate, fun!). I saw that there was a Rust certification that started a while back but didn’t take off I guess.
