AREPL does not use folder-level settings

See original GitHub issue

I’m running vscode on Linux (Ubuntu bionic) and when I installed AREPL extension, it gives this error:

Error in the AREPL extension!
Error running python with command: C:\Python38-32\python.exe -u /home/koumakpet/.vscode/extensions/almenon.arepl-1.0.20/node_modules/arepl-backend/python/

Are you sure you have installed python 3 and it is in your PATH?
            You can download python here:

it seems as if it searched windows path for python instead of the linux one My python is under: /usr/bin/python3

@koumakpet @sephross version 1.0.23 of arepl should now correctly use currently configured interpreter for python extension if arepl.pythonPath is not set - once you update can you test if it is working please?

ItsDrikecommented, Feb 11, 2020

Well in vscode there are basically 3 files for settings: default settings, global user settings and project specific settings (for every workspace, there can be .vscode directory in which there is file settings.json). In my global user settings I had the wrong path set, but in project specific settings, I had python path set to /usr/bin/python3, which is the correct path, but AREPL seems to take the path from global user settings and ignore the project secific settings.
