Hiya, sorry you are having trouble with your build.

This Support Guide contains a ton of useful debugging tips that can likely help you solve your problem :slight_smile: Additionally, this Support Guide houses all of our resources for debugging build and deploy issues.

We also recommend trying to search the forums with the build error you encountered - it’s likely your question was already asked by someone else!

If you are still having problems, please provide as much information as you can on what you have already tried, what your build settings are, your package.json, etc. Thanks!

Before you start researching issues for this build command, be aware that a Netlify deploy would not be able to run a python server application. Netlify is a CDN and expects you to build static assets for deploy to the CDN.

oh well do you have any recommendations for hosting python apps for free in the cloud but not heroku or pythonanywhere

I don’t have recommendations for python hosting, but I do know Vercel and Railway support it.

well vercel only hosts static files again and railway well it can only be the most minimal program for it to run for a month
