@ieahleen yess, it’s on Replit.
So that’s mean i have to use ‘Secrets’ feature? Is it the same way as when using .env?

I was quite confused because I was a beginner who wanted to build a bot :sweat_smile:

yes, replit doesn’t allow .env files anymore so to use environment variables you need to use the Secrets feature, it’s a pretty new thing so anything that is older than a week will tell you to create .env files even if it is no more possible

so I tried to do the code a discord bot too and got stuck. here’s the code below

client.run(os.getenv[“super_secret_token”])

it keeps saying “the function isn’t subscriptable”

oh and also is there a way to make an inventory system where it finds every user and makes a list as it’s “inventory” for it?
thanks

how do i use it for my lobby bot

you probably need to use the database for that, but I don’t really know more than the tutorial
