JavaScript JavaScript Accordion

Better solution!

In the JavaScript code after passing forEach it would be even better if we put in an IF statement, like this only if you press on the header that has the + or - on it the content gets hidden or active and not if you press it everywhere on the .accordion div. I have included here my if statement: Look much nicer in my opinion!

const accordions = document.querySelectorAll('.accordion');
accordions.forEach(accordion => {
  accordion.addEventListener('click', e => {

    if (e.target.classList.contains('accordion-header') || e.target.nodeName=='BUTTON') {

      let accordionBtn = accordion.querySelector('button');
      if (accordionBtn.textContent=== '+') {
        accordionBtn.textContent= '-'
      } else {
        accordionBtn.textContent= '+'
