Article List Django Challenge


The goal is to return a string with the number of articles in the string. I'm not sure why my code isn't working. Any pointers on this would be appreciated!

from django.http import HttpResponse
from .models import Article

def article_list(request):
    articles = Article.objects.all()
    num = articles.len()
    output = "There are {} articles.".format(num)
    return HttpResponse(output)

Hi William

In Python you need to use len() a bit differently:

num = len(articles)

If you change this line, all should be good. Hope this helps!
