Didn't find an URL for your view

I am trying to create an URL for my class-based view, which has a get method, returns an HttpResponse, and is instantiated using the as_view() method in the URL pattern list. I can't see why the error "Didn't find an URL for your view" is happening?

from django.conf.urls import url, include

from . import views

urlpatterns = [
    (r'^$', views.WelcomeView.as_view(), name="WelcomeView"),
from django.views.generic import View
from django.http import HttpResponse

class WelcomeView(View):
    def get(self, request):
        return HttpResponse("hi")

Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with Django, so I've asked around a few more people for you.

The best thing I can offer is check indentation in your code and your imports are correct.

Try running the code again? Sometimes some funny things happen with the code engine behind the scenes. ;)

You are VERY close. The url patterns should be url objects.

ā€¢ call the url() function with the expressions within the parens

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!
