AttributeError: 'Thief' object has no attribute 'pickpocket'
I'll move past this, but curious whether anyone could tell me why I'm running into errors running this code:
import random class Thief: sneaky = True def pickpocket(self): return bool(random.randint(0, 1))
I ran the same commands as Kenneth within the console --
>>> from characters import Thief >>> kenneth = Thief() >>> kenneth.pickpocket()
-- but when I hit ENTER, I got an AttributeError instead of a boolean result (Kenneth got 'False' in this instance).
Can anyone explain where I went wrong?
I figured it out. Looks like Workspaces doesn't like that extra line within the class. When I changed the code to --
import random class Thief: sneaky = True # There used to be a space between this line and the next one def pickpocket(self): return bool(random.randint(0, 1))
-- I got the proper output in the console:
>>> from characters import Thief >>> kenneth = Thief() >>> kenneth.pickpocket() False >>>
So all's well. :) Hope this helps anyone running into the same error!

I had the same problem. Exiting from python and entering again in console solves the problem. For some reason after changing the file content import doesn't update the code from the file.

Not sure. I copy/pasted your code including the commands and received False just like the video.
Hmm. Maybe it's just my version of the console that doesn't like the extra space within this class. Either way, thank you for the quick response!
