File "/usr/local/lib/python3.6/tkinter/init.py", line 2017, in init

The error message is basically a fancy way of the interpreter saying that tkinter doesn't work on repl.it.

@HappyFakeboulde so how come it works for me?

@Lethdev2019 because you're using the explicit tkinter repl type instead of normal python
when the repl.it developers added support for tkinter, they made it a separate type of repl, which you might have selected

I don't believe TKinter is supported in repl.it yet.
