error with env files please help (might be repl's fault)

I found an error with .env files. env files do not work in python if you click on the "box with arrow" to run the program in a new window. Then the os.getenv("key") returns None even if you have something with a key of none. for example:
click on this link and it will print None
while if you look run the code- (the code for the above program) then you will see it will print "hello everyone". in the file the actual .env file won't be displayed so a created a file called env wich will contain the exact same text as the .env file.
I think this might be a problem with repl....

@ash15khng on the first script it will because you are in the .run and it can't access the .env files, so it return None. the second script returns "hello world" becuase the actual file can access the.env
P.S. i made a copy of the .env and put it in a env file
