Python Using Databases in Python Gettin' CRUD-y With It CRUD: Create Function

create Challenge

Hey guys,

I'm having some trouble understanding what this task is asking for. I especially don't understand the create the challenge part. Should it be part of the function.

Thanks for your help!

from models import Challenge

name = 'Yey'
language = 'Python'
steps = 1

def create_challenge(name, language, steps):

challenge = Challenge(name, language, steps)

Hello Jose!

The main issue I see it that you are trying to create the challenge outside the function and this is not what we want! The function itself is called create_challenge, so what we want is to put the piece of code that creates the challenge, inside that function.

Let's have a look at the code itself: The def line you wrote is very close to the right one, you only need to set the default steps equal to 1. Inside the function you need to use the Challenge.create() method, passing in the parameters of the function.

Let me know if more help is needed, but I think you are pretty close and can do it!

;) Vittorio

Thanks Vittorio!
