Pyhton import of class failed (I think), repl.it wants to install new package but fails
bennypr0fane (0)

So this populate.py file tries to import my classes from the other file:
https://repl.it/@bennypr0fane/Tome-Rater
repl.it does this:

Repl.it: Installing fresh packages

Collecting TomeRater
  ERROR: Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement TomeRater (from versions: none)
ERROR: No matching distribution found for TomeRater


Repl.it: package installation failed!

Why is it trying to install something here?

When you do from TomeRater import * it is trying to import from a file called tomerater.py but it doesn't exist, so repl.it assumes you are trying to install it. What you want to do here is

from main import TomeRater
